"> River & Sky Music/Camping Festival - July 20-23, 2017


The indie rock quartet Weaves will close out the festival on the Sunday, sending people home with a burst of happy-energy. Described by The Guardian as having a sound landing somewhere between the Pixies and Pavement - “they have the fierce power of the former and the quirky singularity of the latter.” The group began in a series of sessions in the bedroom of Morgan Waters’ Chinatown apartment, where Waters and Jasmyn Burke would record increasingly elaborate demos built from Burke’s phone full of songs. They transitioned to a full band lineup in late 2013, adding bassist Zach Bines and drummer Spencer Cole. The band has since built a devoted audience while capturing the attention of the international media. Their self-titled album has received national and international press. Pitchfork called it “an impressive album about incapacitating infatuation.” While Rolling Stone said the foursome “bend pop tropes as if they're made of Silly Putty, Weaves' idiosyncratic songs play with genre and form.”
