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.

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.
