In Between Days Festival Preview: Sweet Petunia

If you take our recommendation and see The Gypsy Moths at noon on Saturday, you potentially saw ten hours of music and probably want a rest for a bit on Sunday. You'll need some extra energy to stay fresh for Trampled By Turtles and Lord Huron, so I'm sure you'll want to sleep in at least a little that day. But, you're going to need to get to In Between Days before noon to make sure you catch Sweet Petunia.

I can't remember when I first discovered Sweet Petunia, but they have been high on my list of must see Boston bands for a while. (It just hasn't worked out, unfortunately.) Their bio lists them as a "queer freak-folk band," but I personally think they sound a bit more traditional folk than freak-folk implies. Madison Simpson and Mairead Guy have some of the finest vocal harmonies in all of folk. Their music is absolutely lovely and completely captivating, and will be the perfect way to ease you back into festival mode. It's also the perfect way to start your more folk based Sunday at In Between Days. They are the kind of artist that could be catapulted by getting a larger audience than they normally do, but completely deserve.

You can listen to "Kil" below. For more on Sweet Petunia, check out the artist's website, and be sure to catch them Sunday August 20 at In Between Days! Tickets and more information can be found here.
