Spaceface | 5:40 p.m. Saturday, April 30 on Fowler Auto Main Stage

Spaceface is a self-described “Retro Futurist Dream Rock” band from Memphis, TN & Los Angeles, CA, active since 2012. Always eavesdropping on the Universe whispering its chaotic will, the groovy bunch harnesses the transcendent pulse of the spacetime continuum into catchy songs that whirl and twirl, bend and stretch, attract and propel. Their unique alloy of dream-pop, funk rock and post-disco, charged by the Sun, ultimately shines way past our collective bedtime, akin to a glow-in-the-dark Slime Science Lab kit.

The project’s founding members include Jake Ingalls (also of The Flaming Lips), Matt Strong, Eric Martin, and Daniel Quinlan, and recently added Katie Pierce from Pierced. Ultimately, Spaceface’s goal is to acknowledge the blurred pain that lurks in the corners of one’s vision on a day-to-day basis while providing a brief escape for anyone who needs or desires it. In light of years of thorough research (or a dream to that effect) that have confirmed music, as an artform, to be a potent medicine for both your mind and your feet, the psych rockers abide.

Over the course of 8 years, the collective has toured all over North America, with stops at many international festivals. Always equipped with a state of the art light-show, sometimes accompanied by weirdish stage props and/or gadgets, the ever-evolving American act provides their dedicated following with thrill-inducing D.I.Y. performances that only get crazier as they perfect their experimental craft.
