Bent Knee Neurolux Boise

Bent Knee is a fiercely innovative group bridging the gap between the experimental and the familiar, merging texture and style into music that’s moving, addictive, and unapologetically original.

Megafauna 1


Jolting from headbanging math rock to an ethereal wash of psychedelia to grungy, garage riffage in an instance, Megafauna blend angular rhythms with beautiful melodies in a way unlike their Austin, TX rock and roll peers. Led by the ethereal vocals and guitar wizardry of Dani Neff, Megafauna draw from progressive powerhouses like Rush and The Mars Volta, avant-indie instigators Radiohead and Unknown Mortal Orchestra and contemporary shredders like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Mastodon. The band has evolved over the years to the current lineup of Zack Humphrey on drums, Will Krause on bass and Winston Barrett on guitar/keys, each bringing a precision and edge to the outfit.

Performing at Levitation Festival, curated by The Black Angels and The Reverberation Appreciation Society, Megafauna flexed their latest material alongside French psych-rockers Slift, as the show was lauded by the festival community. No stranger to touring, they have sharply cut their chops across US and European stages, performing alongside Cursive, Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Treefort Festival, SXSW, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Norman Music Fest, and more.

Such as their namesake, the band crafts massive, heavy and momentous musical moments but with a beautiful, natural and melodic touch. To that end, Megafauna carry the weight of their sonic forebearers while they define their own path and break the neurotypical patterns of heavy rock.
