Alive After Five: Magic Giant

July 19, Grove Plaza

If you're into clever instrumentation and high-energy sound, you'll likely join most of the country in loving indie folk trio Magic Giant on first listen—the California-based band's debut single "Set on Fire," released in 2016, was streamed over 4 million times in less than a year, earning local and national accolades.

The backstory of the band is chock full of too much zaniness to list—proving popularity doesn't make you mainstream or ordinary. One member, Zambricki Li, has Acquired Savant Syndrome—he learned how to play the violin in four days after being hit by a car as a tween—and cellist/guitarist Zang (yep, he's mononymous, like Prince) was discovered by the other band members through his salsa dancing videos on YouTube. When you add that part of the group's newest album, In the Wind (2017), was recorded inside a giant Redwood tree, you have a recipe for an Alive After Five concert that can't be missed.
