"> River & Sky Music/Camping Festival - July 20-23, 2017


The indie rock quartet Weaves will close out the festival on the Sunday, sending people home with a burst of happy-energy. Described by The Guardian as having a sound landing somewhere between the Pixies and Pavement - “they have the fierce power of the former and the quirky singularity of the latter.” The group began in a series of sessions in the bedroom of Morgan Waters’ Chinatown apartment, where Waters and Jasmyn Burke would record increasingly elaborate demos built from Burke’s phone full of songs. They transitioned to a full band lineup in late 2013, adding bassist Zach Bines and drummer Spencer Cole. The band has since built a devoted audience while capturing the attention of the international media. Their self-titled album has received national and international press. Pitchfork called it “an impressive album about incapacitating infatuation.” While Rolling Stone said the foursome “bend pop tropes as if they're made of Silly Putty, Weaves' idiosyncratic songs play with genre and form.”

The Weather Station (solo)

The Weather Station is the project of singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman. Her third and Polaris prize nominated album, Loyalty, was recorded at LaFrette studios, just outside of Paris, in collaboration with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist). Released in May 2015 on Paradise of Bachelors (US/ Europe), Outside Music (Canada), and Spunk Records (Australia) it drew international acclaim, soaring to number 1 on the Canadian folk college radio charts in 2015. Since the release of Loyalty, The Weather Station has toured extensively in North America, Europe, and Australia, as headliner and as support for Bahamas, The Mountain Goats, Damien Jurado, and Basia Bulat. R&S fans may remember Tamara’s liquid voice as part of Bruce Peninsula, which played the Kearney edition of the festival in 2011. “Plain but elegant, simple but intricate… Her songs feel very much like attempts to understand and appreciate the world in spite of its bitter ills; like the most basic forms of folk music, a term Lindeman readily embraces, they come with intent and aim.” – Pitchfork
