(4:15pm, hangar stage) Ruby and The Reckless is the brainchild of Ruby Jane, Austin Simmons, Miggy Milla, Chris Copeland and Sam Powell, based out of Austin, Texas . Their unique style has been called "a psych-jamming, darkly optimistic, alt-hooky, fiddlin' mind f**k." They recently received the prestigious Black Fret grant in late 2015, and have been working on their 2016 debut EP with Chris John "Frenchie" Smith out of the Bubble studio in Austin, TX
