The Resonance Club hosted a free afternoon of musical performances last Thursday at South City Campus.
The third annual Bearfoot Festival showcased the musical talents of Salt Lake Community College students and local artists. Multiple acts from a variety of genres took the stage to entertain audiences from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Oregon and the Trees opened the festival with a mix of original work and covers of songs by The Killers and Weezer. The next artist, guitarist Moe Sanchez, performed some soulful guitar work, including a song he wrote just for the festival.
Robert Devins, whose stage name is Brain Detergent, played an expressive and imaginative set of house music. He was followed on stage by student Scott Seibert, who shared his skills as a composer and pianist with the crowd, performing all of his own work.
Guitarist Wilford Prater from The Green Man 7 played original titles “Heed the Cry of Wolf” and “Tim DeChristopher,” an homage to the environmental activist. He also pleased festivalgoers with a cover of John Lennon’s “imagine” and Bob Dylan’s “Times They Are a Changing.”
The earthy guitar playing from Cambriah Heaton reminded the audience of the Seattle music scene from the 1990s. Her set included original performances of “Eyes of Ours,” “Morning Lullaby” and “Same Love.”
Synth pop duo The Backseat performed original songs like “Love and Other Bad Ideas” as well as an imaginative cover of “All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers. BLVD wrapped up the music with a mix of classic rock and saxophone, giving soulful performances of original songs “Soldier” and “Peasant.”
Dozens of people visited the festival throughout the afternoon. KRCL representatives were also in attendance, showing support for local music and offering guests a chance to win T-shirts and CDs.
Resonance Club treasurer Jacob Martinez says that club members were really excited for a nice turnout.
