Ducktails at Neck of the Woods

This Saturday, local ticketing app gone total tastemaker WillCall is presenting another fantastic show, this time at Neck of the Woods. The lineup has a peculiar theme – stellar side projects of successful artists. The show’s headliner Ducktails is the psychedelic solo work of Real Estate’s guitarist Matt Mondanile. Watch him explore a hazier side of the guitar music you may have known him for.

Support comes just as well recommended. Dawn Golden (members of Chicago dream pop duo Houses) represents the more plaintive side of Mad Decent, in the form of fuzzy, piano-based electronic explorations. Seriously, a cover of Counting Crows’ “Colorblind” buried beneath and within another original track? Who doesn’t like that?!

Also exciting is the opening set – a live debut of Giraffage’s lesser known musing Robot Science. Catch the first performance of this psychedelic but upbeat sample-heavy project. Our local hero DJs are not to be ignored either – come early to catch Epicsauce as they kick off the evening.
