Three Massachusetts-based bands — Humble Digs (Northampton), Aubrey Haddard (Boston) and And The Kids (Northampton) — will kick off the first O+ Festival in North Adams on May 10 at Elks Lodge.
Humble Digs is a four-piece band with several EPs, compilations and a full-length album comprised of a mixture of psychedelic folk, rock, jazz, and funk. Aubrey Haddard steals the hearts of music lovers with her indie-soul vibe. She will be joined by Charley Ruddell on bass and Joshua Strmic on drums.
And The Kids returns to North Adams after opening for Blondie last summer at MASS MoCA. They’re made up of guitarist/vocalist Hannah Mohan, drummer Rebecca Lasaponaro and Megan Miller on synthesizers and percussion. The trio’s latest and third full-length album embraces their untamable spirit more fully than ever before, dreaming up their most sublimely defiant album yet.
HUMBLE DIGS 8-8:30 p.m.
AUBREY HADDARD 9-9:30 p.m.
AND THE KIDS 10-11 p.m.
