Boston psych experimentalists Sunburned Hand of the Man formed in 1997 from the remnants of a short-lived psychedelic punk project, and have spent the last decade and a half as one of the area’s most prolific, unpredictable bands. Their lineup is amorphous and their approach highly improvisational; no two performances, even of the same song, are ever the same. Different instruments and different members contribute something new to each show in the band’s ever-evolving sound. Sunburned Hand has released upwards of 30 recorded works on a number of labels over the course of a 17-year career, including Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Sonic Youth, Mission of Burma and Sunn O))), and they’ve collaborated with Together Boston alum Four Tet on multiple releases.

"Together Boston is rapidly positioning itself as one of the United States’ best events for forward-thinking music."

"The festival’s seventh year was its best yet… Every day of the week there was at least one—and often several—things to look forward to."

"The core notion of the festival … isn’t just to provide a good time, but to illustrate the fertile mix of art and technology intrinsic to current-day Boston."

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
