The Sundance Film Festival ain't just about films, folks.

With a signficant portion of Hollywood's dealmakers and top talent transplanted from L.A. to the chill of Park City for two weeks, it stands to reason that some of the nightlife and party scene of Tinseltown is bound to make the trip to Utah with them.

One rocking venue during this year's festival was the just-opened Star Bar on Park City's Main Street.  With headliners like One Republic, Tommy Lee and Paul Oakenfold scheduled during "festival week," the place was packed with fans and served as a welcome refuge for the occassionally film-weary festivalgoer.

One of the highlights of the week's offerings was undoubtedly Matthew Paul Miller, better known by his Jewish name Matisyahu.

The Pennslyvania native who melds reggae, rock and beatboxing influences through his devoutly religious prism brought his unique vibe to the Star stage Sunday night, unleashing a rocking version of "Sunshine" off last year's "Spark Seeker" album.  Take a listen — then head over to see Matisyahu sit down for an exclusive interview with CraveOnline's Nash Herrington after his set.
