So L’il + Booboniks = S.V.B. (Solilian Von Boobonika) - ambient hip hop straight from the rock, So L’il have been releasing music for the last decade, and shall continue to do so for the next. (Sharon’s last show before the baby too!) Booboniks are more stank than funk, and smell like they sound. Together they scream ‘Where’s my pickle!’
Panda Riot - from Chicago (!) blissful, swirl-pop, sing-along, sonar, breathy soprano wafts above dancy drum machine beats, blown-out guitar booms, and a keyboard plugged into a death metal pedal. Their music has been compared to Portishead, My Bloody Valentine, and The Swirlies, with a lot of hot. From half way cross the country, can’t see them very often round these parts and they’re AMAZING GLORIOUS BEAUTIFIC so come check ‘em out! For reals.
Electric Djinn - five former members of Lumipad and Drifting In the Cinema, led by the indefatigable Omnijenn, I.e. Veronika Sweet, I.e. Jennifer Berklich, I.e. the latest greatest electronic dance craze sweeping the nation via trombone and xylophones, & when not currently getting lost in paradise, skipping the light fandango, which all is to say, not to be missed.
Season Finale - Fugazi meets Rush and dates Madonna, this trio, made up of former members of Pumpernickel and Penfold (and including the infamous Mark Ospovat, producer extraordinaire ala Emandee Studios) brings the progressive rock pop like nobodies business. Stuff this complex should not feel this good. (And if you haven’t experienced ‘the voice’, do so. Sexy Jewminicans singin in 3 octaves don’t cross your path everyday.)
$10 admission includes unlimited free beer and wine
Would love to see you out! Cheers!
