Magic Giant Bring a Foot-Stomping Good Time to Mercury Lounge

June 10th, 2015

Austin Bis (vocals and guitar), Zambricki Li (banjo, mandolin and fiddle) and Brian Zaghi (bass and guitar) formed the folk-revival outfit Magic Giant a few years ago in Los Angeles. Mixing acoustic instruments with electronics into a sort of folk-rave sound, the engaging trio has won over crowds with their hook-laden anthemic songs, inspiring sing-alongs wherever they play—their energetic live shows usually turning into a foot-stomping dance party. And touring behind their recent self-titled five-song EP (stream it below), Magic Giant (above, performing “Let It Burn” in studio for KEXP FM) play Mercury Lounge tomorrow night. Local five-piece Tribe Society open the show.
