Throughout the Spring of 2017, Boulder, CO-based trio SunSquabi has brought their “electronic hydro-funk” across the country as they tour behind their new album, Deluxe, released earlier this month. Last Saturday, April 15th, SunSquabi rolled into Austin’s Empire Control Room for a String Cheese Incident after-party with Cloudchord.
Fresh off his performance with String Cheese earlier in the evening at storied venue Stubb’s, String Cheese percussionist Jason Hann joined band members Chris Anderson (drums), Josh Fairman (bass/synth), and Kevin Donohue (guitar/keys/production) to add rhythmic texture to a two-song set-closing segment that saw the band flow from “Sticky” (from their 2016 EP Odyssey) into “Wizard” (from their 2014 release Thunder).
