The genre-bending duo, Wild Belle, is the last piece in a wildly complex puzzle that synthesizes the Black Keys’ stylings with reggae jams of the ‘70s. Elliot Bergman’s dub-friendly beats encourage his soothsaying sister, Natalie, to lull you into a trance with her sultry voice and hypnotizing moves. Together, they write a songbook that’s not only concerned with unrequited love, but finally doing something about it. Catch the headliners with the support of a 3-piece band.
