This Friday's headliner, YONATAN GAT, was just named by SPIN one of the top acts of SXSW.
"Echoes of funk from Benin; Cuban son from Senegal; Chicano rock from Los Angeles; Afro-Brazilian soul from Rio de Janeiro; and the pentatonic and Arabic scales that connect much of the world - but there's always a lilt and an invitation in it. He leaves a space for you to get in. They were playing for themselves and they were playing for you, but they weren't playing for any static definition of a concert." - NY Times
"Best Guitarist in New York, 2013" - Village Voice
"Psych-jazz improv fusion of late period Miles Davis, weirdo Middle Eastern surf-rawk and Western African complexities with raging punk rock intensity. A mind-blowingly prolific journey crossing vibes of DIY dives and avant-garde jazz spaces." - Vice
"Bring his part of Monotonix's furious energy into a much more improvised realm, his ecstatic guitar playing takes the tune from a bombastic romp into some kind of bizarre and heavenly celebration."
- All Music Guide
"A dizzying performance by a true master of his craft." - Wondering Sound
"Yonatan Gat makes music that has no home. I say that because the guitarist and his band create a sound that is from seemingly everywhere and specifically nowhere at once, channeling everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n' roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the '60s" - The Bay Bridged
The always-wild GOOCH PALMS play the middle slot!
Punk veterans It'll Grow Back kick things off!
