FRIDAY'S TOP PICK
If you're heading to GovBall this weekend, you won't want to miss what's sure to be a killer set from one-musician tour-de-force Tash Sultana. The Australian multi-instrumentalist is back stateside for her first major festival appearance of the summer following a monster set at Coachella last month and ahead of performances at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Red Rocks Amphitheater. Tash seamlessly alternates between acrobatic guitar licks, cooing-then-careening vocals, and otherworldly beatboxing abilities, jumping from keys to trumpet to pan flute in the span of a few minutes. NPR Music called Tash's songs "rapturous and resonant," and the New York Times added that Tash's voice is "sweetly melodic, raspy and untamed."
Tash takes the Bacardi Stage tomorrow, Friday at 5:45 PM, and you may hear some new, unreleased tunes (if you're lucky)!

This June, Governors Ball will celebrate its eighth consecutive year as New York City's premier live music event, and by acclamation, one of the top music festivals in North America. "Governors Ball is New York City's festival," wrote Nylon following last year's stellar event, which featured many show-stopping performances including a memorable set from Childish Gambino, his only North American performance that year. "It combines the best of what this sleepless city has to offer, from food vendors to talent and downtown style." The 2017 festival also left performers enamored as well, with Lorde proclaiming that that Governors Ball was "on some magical spiritual shit." A limited number of 3-day and single day tickets are still available for purchase while supplies last at GovBall.com.
