There is no better candidate to open a Toro y Moi show than Anthony Ferraro- who plays keys for Toro’s touring band. Anthony’s group- Astronauts, etc. is the perfect pairing for this tour, bringing cool slow melodic dream pop to the swaying crowd. The rising quintet combines groovy guitar sounds and subtle drum beats to compliment Ferrero’s soft vocals and synth. Astonauts, etc. proved themselves to be artists to watch with their release of the album “Mind Out Wandering” just days before the beginning of tour. Hopeful for a headlining show from these guys soon!
