Throughout the Spring of 2017, Boulder, CO-based trio SunSquabi has been bringing 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).
You can enjoy a pro-shot recap video of the performance and the Jason Hann sit-in below, courtesy of SunSquabi’s Facebook:

Colorado is coming to New York on April 29th, as hot up-and-coming acts SunSquabi, Late Night Radio, and Maddy O’Neal will make their way to American Beauty NYC in the heart of Manhattan for a fantastic night of electronic goodness. These acts are packing out venues all over Colorado on a regular basis, and for good reason.
