HALF PINT  |   CONCERT

 Half Pint’s diminutive stature belies not only his vocal capabilities but also camouflages his huge on-stage presence, often described as no less than explosive and dynamic. Born Lindon Roberts, but affectionately called Half Pint, he is a product of the West Kingston enclave of Rose Lane, a community in adjacent proximity to Trenchtown which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, and a host of other international Reggae superstars.

HONUS HONUS  |  MVFF MUSIC AT SWEETWATER MUSIC HALL

Out of the multi-instrumental experimental pop experience of Man Man rises Honus Honus, aka front man Ryan Kattner, on the road as a solo artist with his latest project, USE YOUR DELUSION. Self described as ‘dystopian pop’, Honus’ summery avant-synth-rock is upbeat and carefree even when the lyrics may run against the grain into darker territory. Inspired collaborators on the album range from comedian Jon Daly, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, drummer Joe Plummer (Cold War Kids, Modest Mouse) and Oakland’s own Shannon and the Clams and the process of Honus’ early forays on tour are documented in the film Use Your Delusion, also screening at MVFF41. When Honus is in the house, he says:  “ultimately I just want to have the most engaging and fun live show possible. That’s not much to ask, right?” Not too much to ask at all.
