Mirah vs. the Pharmacy
The Pharmacy play the Vera Stage at 4pm on Saturday, July 28th. Mirah plays the Main Stage at 4:15. So there’s not a huge conlfict here, even if you’re partial to both acts. Simply watch the Pharmacy for a few songs, then head to the Main Stage for Mirah. No biggie, huh?
The Pharmacy play scrappy, fun-house mirrored punk pop. Their older songs contained trace amounts of ska—up-picked choruses, little keyboard leads—but lately, the band have been approaching the bizarre lo-fi genius of the dearly departed Unicorns.
Mirah is simply one of the best singer/songwriters (ignore the cringiness of this term) going right now. Advisory Committee and You Think it’s Like This But Really it’s Like This are impeccable, classic albums. Mirah is not to be missed.
