About Diego’s Umbrella
San Francisco, CA

Diego's Umbrella
It’s another curtain call for a one-of-a-kind band: Diego’s Umbrella returns for the third straight year. When it came back last year, singer Vaughn Lindstorm thanked the lake. “We are excited to play your shores again,” he said. “You are a wonderful body of water that has long been kind to us and we realize that you have recently had your bounty filled. While we don’t understand the science involved in that, we would appreciate if you keep the currents low and the sun high for us! Thank you very much.”

Their musicians’ appreciation for punk and ska can be found peppered throughout their shows and albums, made evident by up-tempo, high-energy offerings. The band is Chris Couch (guitar/vocals), Evan Malfer (bass), Dan Hurley (banjo/vocals), Mike Apodaca (drums) and Sean McLean (sax/guitar/vocals).

About Caitlin Jemma + The Goodness
Northern Nevada
Caitlin Jemma is a small-town girl with a big country heart. Raised in the high desert of Northern Nevada, her songwriting is influenced by a sense of adventure, reverie, and discovery. With a sound tempered by country and delivered with soul, Jemma brings a wholesome and enlivened energy to the deep-rooted traditions of storytelling folk. Jemma’s sweet-and-salty twang has earned comparisons to a young Iris Dement, with echoes of Gillian Welch & Valerie June. She’s excited to be opening this summer for Arlo Guthrie at a show in Oregon. A guitarist and vocalist, Jemma is joined by Megan Graham (fiddle) and Michael Steinkirchner (bass/guitar).

They are Hannah Smith (lead vocals, guitar, strum stick, rhyme boss, soup inspector, sweater connoisseur) and Alissa Abeler (guitars, piano/keyboards, BGVs, accordion, coffee maker, reverse-parking pro).
