For this year’s installment of his label’s annual festival, Cloud Recordings head John Fernandes is paring things down a bit, from a multi-venue/multi-day affair to a one-night-only engagement at Flicker. But the selection of performers is top-notch as always, representing some of Fernandes’ favorite local artists. The lineup skews towards the moody and meditative, with psych-raga dudes Naan Violence headlining the evening; Athens transplant Jacob Sunderlin perfuming a set of his hypnotic guitar drone; poet and singer-songwriter Claire Cronin teaming up with collaborator Ezra Buchla; and Fernandes partnering with son Kiran for an experimental, instrumental set to kick things off.
