veteran electronic duo Porter Ricks playing shows, including NYC’s Unsound Festival & London’s Denovali Swingfest

Maria Minerva helped close out Unsound Fest @ Glasslands

London-via-Estonia's Maria Minerva made her US live debut at Glasslands last night (4/22) as part of the Unsound Fest closing party. The stage was lit up by an original video montage which included clips of highway driving, old music videos, and tropical storms as Maria performed solo with her laptop/samplers/keyboard and an effected vocal mic which soaked her voice in reverb and delay...
