On Saturday, local jammers, Zmick will deliver their ground-up mixture of funk, reggae, jazz, and progressive that would surely move the butts of any patchouli drenched, birkenstock-clad audience. Falling just short of the platonic ideal of when “jam” meets “band.”

Interestingly, they are juxtaposed with Santa who will churn out their own brand of local indie-pop laced with pyschedellic underlinings and toweringly piercing vocals. Adding to the indie-pop ambiance will be Tall Tale a piano-driven, female-fronted local quintet, whose soulfull (but gently delivered) vocal inflections become so rythmic at times it’s hard not to bob your head a little.
