Their sound is impossible to put into one genre, but try to imagine "DJ Shadow, Beck, Gogol Bordello, Fela Kuti, Super Furry Animals, and Justice crammed into a van and left to collaborate." (EB)

Holding it down on the dubstep tip will be Shlohmo and Bocl+Dials, each giving you that grimy, dirty beat you love so much. Geno Cochino shares his love of music and arts with the crowd, reinventing the dubstep sound into something truly his own. Now this is just a taste of who's playing at this event, if you want the full lineup, you gotta get your ass to Mighty on Thursday. (CQ)
