Yes, Houston has an electronica scene and we're bringing it THIS Saturday! 3PM on our LAR Stage - but don't take it from us ... "The world of electronica is pretty stacked nowadays, making the route to getting noticed more and more about what you do on stage, it seems. For Houston’s Camera Cult, they pretty much just throw a party every time they perform and the room just gets down to their danceable jams. With two solid singles on vinyl under their belt and more on the way, the three-piece includes live instrumentation and is much like a mix of Disclosure meets ABBA." Free Press Vice Grips ya'll! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02R0xjvjgkA 12:00pm – Tightn' Up 1:00pm – McArthur HS Band/Caliente 2:00pm – Elements of Rhythm 3:00pm – Camera Cult 4:00pm – Werner Richmond
