Porchfest on the Bloc Courtyard!

4pm: Kathy Snax is solo atmospheric synth-pop project from Kathleen Mahoney. Pretty melodies with moments of distortion and noise--like if you plucked a singer from a 60s girl group, gave her a keyboard and a drum machine, and dropped her into a David Lynch movie.

4:45pm: Spencer C Gralla

5:30pm: Littlefoot is a surf/dreampop band fronted by Boston-based singer/songwriter Erica Sutherland, who initially started the band in 2012 as a solo project. Citing influences such as the Shangri-Las and the Beach Boys, Littlefoot has a definite 60's influence, with echoey guitars and lush harmonies, often compared something that might be heard on the "Twin Peaks" soundtrack.
