As promised, here are INHAILER’s highlights of the Bunbury’s Saturday lineup!
Did you miss Friday's? We've got it here!
If you’ve been listening to INHAILER, you’ve probably noticed that Moonbeau is something of a DJ favorite and for good reason. This ‘80s inspired synth-pop duo are Christian Gough of the locally famous The Yugos and Claire Muenchen. The band won Best Electronic Music Act at the Cincinnati Music Awards. Their song “Are We In Love Yet” was even featured on the TV show Catfish.
Join the “Vesperteam” by checking out Vesperteen at Bunbury this year! Originally the drummer for House of Heroes, Colin Rigsby released his first EP as Vesperteen in September 2015. His Bleachers and The 1975 influenced pop rock has gained a wide appeal quite quickly. Beginning as a remedy for restlessness, Rigsby picked up drums at age 12, but passion has brought him where he is today.
Andrew McMahon is an American singer-songwriter who started out in the bands Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin. He began performing as a solo artist in 2012 as Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and sometimes simply as Andrew McMahon. Most recently, he released his second studio album, Zombies on Broadway, in early 2017. He has performed with bands like Weezer and Panic! at the Disco.
MisterWives is an indie pop band based out of New York City that formed in 2012. Their name is a gender-flipped play on the term for the practice of polygamy, sister-wives. The band’s latest record, Connect the Dots, came out last year. Like Andrew McMahon, the group has toured with Panic! at the Disco. The band has also toured with groups like Bleachers, the Cincy-based Walk the Moon, and Foster the People.
Foster the People
Speaking of Foster the People, they will also be playing on Saturday! The Californian indie pop band was founded by vocalist Mark Foster in 2009, after spending several years in Los Angeles as a jingle writer. The band’s breakthrough track, “Pumped Up Kicks,” got their debut album, Torches, nominated for Best Alternative Album at the 2012 Grammys. It didn’t win, but “Pumped Up Kicks” won Rock Song of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards. Foster the People released their third LP, Sacred Hearts Club, last summer.
You won’t want to miss any of these shows! You can hear all of these bands and more on INHAILER radio.
