      Yak Attack
      Live electronic power trio Yak Attack (Portland, OR) is on the rise thanks to exuberant performances across the country that convert the most casual fans into followers. Their live show is musically sophisticated but widely accessible, and they're supported by a growing army of engaged fans willing to make long drives for their next musical fix. Best described as "organic electronica", Yak Attack uses live loops, tight chops, and raw improvisation to build high-energy dance music that’s rooted in breakbeat, electro-funk and trip-hop from scratch, where every uplifting note is played and recorded live. Yak Attack's 2018 album 'Safety Third' was released via Philadelphia's storied label, Ropeadope Records, founded by John Medeski. The band has performed at festivals like Treefort Fest, Joshua Tree Music Festival, WaveSpell, Summer Meltdown and Northwest String Summit, while also establishing itself as leaders of the after party following acts like Phish. They have shared the stage with STS9, Snarky Puppy, Fruition, Lotus, Sunsquabi, TAUK, Turkuaz as well as members of String Cheese Incident & Thievery Corporation, among many others.

      Goose
      Goose is an indie-groove band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass and Ben Atkind on drums. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.

      Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album ‘moon cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting loose.
