Live performance by Rio en Medio (Danielle Stech-Homsy:vocals, baritone ukelele / Justin Riddle: drums, waterglasses, efx / Nicholas Toll: keyboards, toys, percussion, efx) (Listen to this set: Real)
Rio en Medio is principally the musical alter-ego of Danielle Stech-Homsy who says she "was born into visions and questions. With a gay Syrian painter and a Ukrainian flamenco dancer for parents, peculiar circumstance and mysterious blessings were the norm." Danielle's own songs are simple and beautifully mysterious, and she's been known to create some unusually stripped-down versions of a few pop songs on baritone ukelele.

Live performance by Matt Bauer
Matt Bauer's music is loaded with imagery: Soldiers at Fort Campbell, Kentucky train to fight fires in the American west. A black deer slips through the floodlights on a suburban lawn. A teenage couple aborts a robbery at a gas station convenience store. The music Bauer tends to lean on is from a bygone era, but he adds a thematically contemporary spin to his tunes. He dropped by with his banjo, his guitar and his lovely, wispy voice. (Listen to this set: Real)
