Hear/Now Festival of New Sound

Published On April 13, 2012 | By Kymbo Slice | Music

Kelly Strayhorn‘s at it again with their eclectic approach to music programming with this weekend’s Hear/Now Festival of New Sound. Rather than beat a dead horse, we’d like to share with you some recent coverage the event has been getting from local outlets. Pop City listed the event as a “Hot Pick”. The Pittsburgh City Paper previewed the event and also did an in-depth interview with one of the performers, DJ Spooky.

They also released this interview with the Associated Creative Director of E.L.C.O for the festival.
