Wilderado

August 22 | 4:00pm Pacific

Audiotree

Wilderado has a sound that is familiar and dreamy, combining elements of folk, pop, and rock to make a distinctive quality of music all their own. Most of their songs are marked by twangy, well-crooned, harmonies, nods to beloved rock legends in the realm of Neil Young and the Beach Boys, and subtly layered sound inspired by the Malibu home where they got their start. Born and bred in Texas and Oklahoma before curing in the canyons off the Pacific Coast Highway, these boys are equal parts southern spirit and southern California levity. And frankly, their natural level of positive energy and charm is as impossible to believe as it is enjoyable to watch. Each of their shows seems to be imbued with the intimacy of a living room set put on for friends. Perhaps not the most polished, but that somehow wouldn’t be right anyway.

Father John Misty

August 22 | 6:00pm Pacific

Austin City Limits

The erstwhile Josh Tillman (under which name he first appeared on ACL in 2012 as drummer for Fleet Foxes) grew up in Rockville, Maryland. Discovered in Seattle by singer/songwriter Damien Jurado, he began touring and making records, releasing eight under his own name and joining Fleet Foxes for the recording and touring cycle of 2011’s Helplessness Blues. As Father John Misty, he gained immediate attention with 2012’s Fear Fun, solidifying the status of his lyric-heavy, melodic folk rock with 2015’s I Love You, Honeybear. Misty’s artistry comes to a head on the madly ambitious new album Pure Comedy. Inspired by the chaos and uncertainty of modern life, Misty writes “about the dubious privilege of being here, the elusiveness of meaning, true love and its habitual absence, random euphoria and the inexplicable misery of others, truth and its more alluring counterfeits, the sophistication of answers that don’t make any sense, the barbarism of our appetites, lucky breaks and injustice, faith and ignorance, crippling, mind-numbing boredom, and the terror of it all ending too soon.” Heady stuff, wrapped in lyrical wit and the kind of melodies Harry Nilsson would’ve killed to write.

Ani DiFranco

August 24 | 10:00am Pacific

WWOZ New Orleans

American singer, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, poet and songwriter, Ani DiFranco has released more than 20 albums and is widely considered a feminist icon. DiFranco has received positive feedback from critics for much of her career. Although DiFranco’s music has been classified as both folk rock and alternative rock, she has reached across genres since her earliest albums incorporating first punk, then funk, hip hop, and jazz influences. She was one of the first independent musicians to create her own record label (Righteous Babe), a move that has given her significant creative freedom. Watch DiFranco perform live in-studio from WWOZ during the New Orleans Music Show.
