The Fur Coats started the night off with some loungey numbers, giving way to some smooth and fun folk by Ozarks before Jacco Gardner took the stage. Gardner and his band immediately wowed the crowd with songs from their psychedelic LP, Cabinet of Curiosities. There are a lot of contemporary groups making this super-70’s Beatles-esque rock music: Tame Impala and Dr. Dog to name a few, but Gardner’s talents shine through in this form. Using keys, synths, and loops, he and his band make flawless tunes that, coupled with enticing queued up visuals, procure a trippy experience.
