The sundresses

Sundresses THE SUNDRESSES (Cincinnati, OH): Protest and revelry. It’s shame, hope, humor and glory. It’s spiteful. It’s revealing. It’s lyrical prophesizing to guitar, bass, drums and trombone. It’s Blues, Bluegrass, Punk, Garage Rock and/or Roll. It’s brutally honest, and each song has such a familiar sound that you swear it’s a cover, but it’s not. The Sundresses are that good.

The Sundresses is confirmed to perform at MPMF09.

Dick Prall

DICK PRALL (Chicago, IL): porch pop evoking the sonic midway between Matthew Sweet and the Old 97s, between Josh Rouse and Pete Yorn, between chocolate and potato chips.

The Rosewood Thieves

THE ROSEWOOD THIEVES: NEW YORK CITY...with their immersion in vintage rock, folk and gospel records, they find elegance in simplicity...They are the percolating governors of keeping things cool...If this decade has produced a more spot-on channeling of John Lennon's late-'60s snarl, we have yet to hear it.

The Rosewood Thieves are confirmed to perform at MPMF09.

The Subjects

The Subjects

THE SUBJECTS: BROOKLYN, NEW YORK...sweet harmonic backdrops with elements of chaos and dissonance that are perfectly placed and seemingly inevitable… pit boyish innocence against the weighty reality of our world and live performances that throw crowds right in the middle.

The Subjects are confirmed to perform at MPMF09.
