2013 Music Now Festival 4/12-4/14–Watch This Is The Kit From Last Year’s Festival and Get Ye to Cincinnati

Feb 27th, 2013 in Music

Bryce and Aaron Dessner continue to give back to their native Ohio.  Each year the Dessners and friends present the magical Music Now Festival in Cincinnati.  We would give our senseless minds to attend each year.  This year’s Music Now will run from April 12th to 14th, and the Saturday night of Glen Hansard, The Brooklyn Youth Chorus and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) boggles the mind from afar.

Last year’s MNF was no exception, including the likes of This Is The Kit and other kindred souls meeting within the zips and zones of Cincinnati.  Check out This Is The Kit (rightfully raved over by Sharon Van Etten, Elbow’s Guy Garvey, The National, etc.) as they call forth a demon or angel three in their performance below (which includes a deft and soulful slide segment from Aaron Dessner and Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry).  The performance was produced by A Story Told Well & Music Now for La Blogothèque.

And blessed are those who see and are silent.  Indeed (must aspire).  We’ve been getting most mightily filthy.  Mud marks up to our necks.  And they did unfold, and the wind it did fill them in the wind.  And so the outside bashes us in.  Feel it tugging you, ploughing you flat; then feel it filling your sails and warm on your back.  Life.

This Is The Kit is working on its next album, which will hopefully be released later this year, with Aaron Dessner producing.
