LoDa will receive a triple shot of modern jam courtesy of Soul Kitchen. Birmingham’s Downright will introduce the crowd to the evening’s lineup. This group of young funk-monsters is taking the genre into another dimension. Downright has crafted its funk with eclectic aspects of electronica and synth added to keep things fresh.

Higher Learning will follow and set the tone for the show’s headliner. This group is backed by Sound Tribe Sector 9’s 1320 Records, which released its latest single, “Lok.” This trio bases its sound on live instruments and electronic elements that go heavy on the synth and light on the dub.

Papadosio is returning to the Azalea City with its new album, “Extras in a Movie,” which was self-produced by the Asheville group. This group has mastered the live instrument/electronic sound. Each track on this album takes the listener on a sonic journey through a vast range of emotions.
