October 1 Megafaun

Based in Durham, North Carolina but hailing from Wisconsin, the psychedelic rock trio, Megafaun, knows a thing or two about traveling. They are almost always on tour. Brothers Phil and Brad Cook met percussionist Joe Westerlund in 1997 while they were all at the H.O.R.D.E. Festival, apparently sharing in their mutual love for bands like Neil Young, Primus and Leftover Salmon. Combining melancholic finger-picking, eloquent harmonies and raw instrumentation, Megafaun is like a rougher sounding Fleet Foxes. While they aren’t exactly well-known, they have shared the stage with such notables as Akron/Family and The Mountain Goats. Currently on tour in support of their third self-titled studio release, the trio hits Omaha for a night of finger-lickin’ good guitar pickin’. (Kyle Eustice)
