That’s Militant Child, with “Dance With Me,” one of the tracks you can hear in its entirety on her MySpace site. Speaking of audio – if you missed any of the live broadcast that ran from 6 am till early evening, it’s archived here – for example, you can try 10:30 am Friday, May 21, to look for the segment featuring Chief Sealth International High School Marching Band performance (we had video in our first report – here’s one more photo):
