Le Chat Lunatique As unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doowop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike.

Dust City Opera The Dust City Opera is New Mexico’s freshest alternative folk-rock band led by singer/songwriter Paul Hunton. They’re known for their unique instrumentation, vibrant covers, and crafty songwriting, often juxtaposing dark, bold subject matter over whimsical, light-hearted melodies. Hunton’s songwriting is strikingly visual and spans the spectrum from playful to apocalyptic, balancing his powerful voice over exceptional arrangements of dreamy guitar licks and intensely rich horns.

They are an unusual combination of sounds, including the expected rock band instruments, as well as trombone, accordion, clarinet and more. Their genre is best described as alternative folk-rock with influences from rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, classical, and alt-country. Similar artists include: Cake, Tom Waits, Chris Cornell, the Handsome Family, Chet Atkins, and the Felice Brothers. Learn more: https://dustcityopera.com
