Short for Cinema. Art. Music. Movement., Sophisticates United Network’s monthly CAMM festivals unite creative minds from across the multimedia spectrum. At Saturday’s show, the headlining bands favor modern but still folk-like sensibilities, from the Superhumanoids’ dreamy male-female vocals—which Spin called “positively swoon-inducing”—to No’s nostalgic four-part harmonies. Races fills the stage with the emotionally charged energy of six musicians and vocalists, propelled by the recent release of its debut album on Frenchkiss Records.
While the three bands rock out on the outdoor stage, audience members can stretch out on the grass with ahi tuna nachos or carnitas fries from The Lime Truck, or they can wander over to other events, including a sneak-peek, all-cliffhanger exhibition from The Newport Beach Film Festival. A full bar proffers mixed drinks, and an Artist Village highlights work by crafters and classically trained painters alike.
