Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty, the guys behind El Ten Eleven, call themselves a power duo. But a better name might be a rocktopus, because the instrumental electro-dance rock magic the two blast out requires perfect synchronization of all eight of their combined limbs.

Dunn uses nearly a dozen effects pedals and a looper to lay down multiple layers of finger-tapping and rock riffs from his double-neck guitar while Fogarty moves back and forth between electronic and acoustic drums, syncing perfectly with Dunn's live-loops, even when they stray into difficult time signatures.

El Ten Eleven's technical precision is only outdone by how catchy its songs end up sounding, and how much fun El Ten Eleven makes them on stage with its light show.

The band recently had to cancel a string of dates after a skiing accident in Colorado in which Dunn broke several ribs and punctured a lung, but they're now back at the top of their game and will be giving Treefort's main stage a helluva treat.
