Bent Arcana - Live at Le Guess Who? 2021
Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, visual artist and record label owner John Dwyer was one of the curators for Le Guess Who? 2021, presenting his personal program with inspirations and fellow like-minded artists. As part of the curation, Dwyer also performed twice himself on the final day of the festival: first with jam-loving collective Bent Arcana, and later that day with his main project OSEES.
You can now relive both performances. First off, you can also listen to Bent Arcana's full set at the festival (which features a.o. Kyp Malone on electronics), which marked the group's European live premiere. Need more? We've got your back. You can also watch the video of OSEES performing 'Turned Out Light' as the closing song of their show.
