Fri, Feb. 18, 8 p.m.: At a newish performance space on Degraw Street, in the Gowanus, comes a North-Carolina/Brooklyn/Americana music party/show.
Characterized as “explosively intoxicating,” Greensboro, N.C.’s Holy Ghost Tent Revival melds brass with banjo, guitar, bass, drums and keys. The six-piece ensemble boasts an eclectic mash of instruments and styles.
Holy Ghost Tent Revival creates a raucous party where everyone is welcome and the most stoic find their toes tapping and lips smiling. In the spirit of the blues that traveled the American psyche before, the band’s music is not to lament but to celebrate life in all its pleasure and pain.
Playing with Brooklyn’s indie pop quartet, Via Audio. Two years after the release of their critically-acclaimed album Say Something, Via Audio releases Animalore, a melting pot of eccentric songs infused with fairy tales, folklore, science fiction, romance, seduction, and adventure.
And, Do It To Julia, a four-piece band formed in the gorgeous Appalachian mountain town of Boone, N.C. in 2006. With one graduate of Appalachian State’s school of music and a classically trained violinist, they combine technical skill with the creative gifts of our co-songwritrs Ryan O’Keefe and Halli Anderson to produce a sound they call their own. The music is bright, robust, buoyant.
