This Saturday is the final gig of BIG WORDS‘ Spring Tour ’09, with recent Wes favorites Dear Lamp opening at 316 Washington Street.
BIG WORDS is a jazz/dance trio from Brooklyn with an “MMW freaking out” kind of vibe. Their songs are influenced by jazz, hip hop, rock, indie, avant-garde, and electronica. Performances are firey and funky, and the music doesn’t let up until the room is sweating. The instrumentation is keyboard, electric bass, and drums. Check out the demo HERE.
From Aural Wes:
After a recent thrift store perusal, what was I to find, but a dear lamp. The southwest twanging of Carlos Nugent ‘11 and rhythmic banging of John Myers ‘11 lent to my ears as the sweet violin of Katherine Scahill ‘11 intoxicated my heart. Lost in the sophisticated interplay of guitarists Hannah Overton ‘11 and Ian Coss ’11 with bassist Daniel Hymanson ‘11, I knew the notes that danced around the dust-ridden shelves should not be forgotten in the back of that thrift store.
Far from the shoegaze indie bands, Dear Lamp’s music is a letter to that lamp so dear.
Date: Sat April 11
