SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN eyewitness report: "Amid stomping, yelling about rats, and clanging percussion, the Sunburned members came out dressed in costumes and shaking effigies at the audience. Their set veered widely between organized, off-kilter grooves (but grooves nonetheless) and dissonant, ramshackle chaos. Employing samplers and digital effects over loosely traditional instruments, the Man pulled the audience through some sort of free-folk looking glass, hybridizing the hillbilly and hipster into a soulful, ridiculous Weirdstock. By the end of the set, the audience was surrounded in cables and skulls, scraps of costumes and pedals, unsure of whether the band had finished playing or not. If experimental music is aimed at subverting our usual expectations, then Sunburned Hand of the Man delivers, offering a musical experience that's unclassifiable - sometimes even as music. Their music is both fearless and engaging, hilarious and high-art, and represents the best of what outsider music can offer." With ODD CLOUDS and FRANKLIN'S MINT.
