Lyrically-conscious, unique, energetic hip-hop quartet PACT is based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota bringing vulnerability and inspirational lyricism with comparisons to the early Black Eyed Peas or Doomtree, they are bringing in a high-energy night of rap at Can Can Wonderland, and are even bringing some special guests!
Goop City is a psychedelic Hip Hop band, infused with experimental dance music. The group has deep roots in the storytelling tradition of folk and the improvisational nature of jazz and combines diverse and complex influences to create a show like none other. The 5-piece musical chimera is a direct descendant of classic Twin Cities underground Hip Hop, incubated on the midwestern festival circuit, and coming of age during a new era of musical performance fusing virtuosic musical skill with cutting edge electronic instrumentation and production techniques. The Goop crew bares their heart through intimate storytelling on heavily lyric driven songs, but can also hold down an improvisational jam like a modern Grateful Dead (if Jerry Garcia learned to use Ableton). The diverse musical abilities and tastes that make up Goop City’s music serve as a pathway into brand new territory and their devotion to their art and performance have quickly began to foster a nationwide audience.
