The Bots: Brothers Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei delivered a powerful sonic experience that was rooted in fuzzed-out, guitar-driven rock that also glistened with flashes of synth pop and electronica. The duo is at its raucous best when Mikaiah’s soaring guitar explodes, then collides, with Anaiah’s thundering grooves. The result is an impressive and massive wall of sound.

Sisters: Don’t let their moniker fool you — Sisters are actually a gender-balanced duo featuring Emily Westman and Andrew Vait. The two glided through their set with a relaxed, but keenly focused and cool, outlay of new wave synth pop, replete with driving grooves and warm melodies. Best thing of all is that it just made you wanna move.  

.@Bumbershoot Day 3 cannot get off to a better start! @SISTERS_band crushing it on the Rhapsody Stage 🙏

The Fame Riot: Yet another display of brotherly love (and art?), glam rockers Liz Scarlett and Shazam Watkins take their retro sound and mash it up with a little punk to send you straight to the floor — dance floor, that is. The duo’s set was wrapped up in blissed-out beats as much as screaming guitar solos and their set resonated long after they left the stage.

Get over to Rhapsody Stage now!!! @THE_FAME_RIOT are KILLING it 🙌🙌🙌

Lonesome Shack: Junior Kimbrough would smile kindly upon this trio as their hypnotic, droney blues harkens back to another time and space. Lead singer and guitarist Ben Todd floats above the group’s unshakeable pulse as the songs build to a restrained yet heavy simmer.

Nacho Picasso: Nacho Picasso brought the Rhapsody Stage to a close at Bumbershoot 2015. Witty, dark rhymes recalling his ne’er-do-well exploits that ride on top of slick beats threw the crowd into a frenzy, showing why people have been paying attention to Picasso since he first grabbed the mic.

S/O to @NachoPicasso!! Closing out this year’s Rhapsody Stage at @Bumbershoot 2015
