Goes Great With: The Talking Heads, David Byrne Heart Byrne
pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement. HeartByrne picks up the torch where the seminal concert film ‘Stop Making Sense’ left off, breathing new life into the classics and pushing the grooves into uncharted sonic territory. What began as an informal ‘hoot night’ has evolved into a must-see touring act featuring members of the Purple Bee Crew, some of Austin, TX’s most talented musicians.http://heartbyrne.org

An ever-evolving artist, Artifakts established his project in 2011 and has been able to break out of the confines of modern electronic music while also contributing to the project both sonically and visually. Landing noteworthy shows across the country with a wide array of both live and DJ sets, this producer has shown his belonging among the ranks of both seasoned beat makers and bands alike.
Since 2012 Artifakts has worked with a plethora of renown musicians, labels and producers both musically and in design to provide a unique catalog of music and art very much rooted in the indie-electronic community. While toting a discography frequently favorited by study/relax playlists and the more introspective listener, an Artifakts performance is anything but stringent in style, often showcasing genres from current EDM to classic funk grooves and anything in between.
