April 26, 2014 | WUSC Jamboree


Returning to El Burrito for the 3rd consecutive year, we’ve packed the 2014 line-up with lots of out of town talent and hometown sweethearts. WUSC JAMBOREE will have plenty of food, drinks, and music to keep you wildly entertained!

Vacationer (Philadelphia, PA and Brooklyn, NY) Blend of escapist dream pop and somewhat-mystical electro-pop. Vacationer are self-proclaimed ‘relaxation specialists’ who provide ideal sunny weather songs that we are so excited to share with Columbia for a second time!

Heyrocco (Nashville, TN): This South Carolina-bred trio may be known for their dark, nostalgic pop tunes, but their compelling image and onstage persona is in-your-face rock and roll. Their music is reminiscent of bands such as The Cure, Nada Surf, and early Pumpkins spiked with an experimental blend of Broken Social Scene meets On A Friday.

Michael Parallax (Orlando, FL): Michael Parallax brings huge analog beats to an extremely clean down tempo electronica. In the artists own description: Celebratory Electronic Spiritual Revival Tent Music. We’ll give you some time to figure out what that means, but you know you want to see it.

Zack Mexico (Kill Devil Hills, NC): Music to go to (and be angry at) the beach with. Mexico brings all the light-hearted riffs and echoing vocals of classic beach rock, but manages to distinguish themselves from the pack with a sound that’s a blend of dream-pop, dark vocals, and extremely experimental elements.

Amy Godwin (Atlanta, GA): Amy Godwin hails from Atlanta, GA and provides the beautiful female vocals for Valley Maker. Her solo material features ukulele accompaniment, a capella, and rich looper pedal harmonies.

Lonely Ghost (Columbia, SC): Lonely Ghost is a recently formed four-piece. They are all very serious, emotional dudes whose music makes you want to kill yourself.

One Two Skidoo – Acoustic Set (The inside of a pinãta): You just need to know that Kanye West is the band’s spirit animal. Since their formation, they have been inspired by Kanye’s recent tweet, “I wake up every day trying to give something back to you that you can rock to and be proud of.” Their sound has been described as if Frankie Muniz bought a python that he just couldn’t take care of. If you haven’t seen them yet, it’s performance art in band form.

fk mt. (Columbia, SC): soda city stoner pop

MyBrother MySister (Columbia, SC): They’ve opened for about every band in Columbia, and with their brutally catchy riffs and heavy punk influences, it’s not hard to see why My Brother My Sister are some of Cola’s favorite hometown kids.

Tickets: $8 at the Door
