The Pinedale Fine Arts Council will conclude the 10th Annual Soundcheck Summer Music Series this Saturday, August 19 with a trio of Austin, Texas-based bands at American Legion Park with music slated to start at 4 p.m. The final Soundcheck will be held in conjunction with Pinedaleís Eclipse Festival which hosts a weekend of activities leading up to the much anticipated total solar eclipse on August 21.
Headliners The Deer encompasses the innovation of the modern indie-folk revival and the cross-pollination of Austinís diverse music scene. Described as transcendental Texas folk and stargaze surf-western, The Deer create psychotropic soundscapes and tranquil, vivid dream-pop.
Playing middle bill, and certainly no stranger to Pinedale, Austinís The Lonesome Heroes return after a two hiatus from playing Sublette County. Austin's KUTX describes them as "the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths."
Opening Saturday nightís show will be the Ft. Collins/Austin-based Whippoorwill. Featuring members of The Patti Fiasco and Von Stomper, Whippoorwill is cathartic, experiential alt-folk written by boots-in-the-dirt, partner-in-crime country girls and delivered across drummer Tobias Bank's vast percussive landscape.
Following the music in the park, both The Lonesome Heroes and Whippoorwill will play a special after-party at Wind River Brewing Company which kicks off at 9 p.m.
