People, get ready! Not only is there a Mel & Josh living room show planned for this weekend, but it’s gonna get electric! If your life hasn’t yet been touched with this duo’s incredible tunes, make sure to check out their bandcamp and don’t miss this show! Mel Hsu ’13 has a little something to say:
Word on the street is that Josh Smith ’11 and some of The Rooks are coming back to Wes on Saturday to play a Mel & Josh living room show with a special guest set from Bay Area band DRMS! We are incredibly excited to play songs off of our recently-released album: “Analogue.” This will be our first intimately electric show at Wes with a full band. We’ll be rocking songs from Analogue, some older favorites, and some new songs as well.
We will be joined by our good friends Jessica Best ’14, Tory Mathieson ’14, Yatta Zoker ’14, Gabe Gordon ’11, Louis Russo ’11 and Nate Mondschein ’12.
>BUT WAIT…WE’RE NOT DONE. We will also be joined by one of our favorite bands, Bay Area indie darlings DRMS! (Pronounced: “Dreams”) Fronted by the sultry Emily Ritz and anchored by the extraordinary songwriting of Rob Shelton, the band’s sound “has been described as what would happen if Billie Holiday was selected to perform in an electro-afro-pop infused band curated by David Lynch.”
Check out their beautiful, surreal video for “With You” right here:
We’ll be kicking things off at 9:00 at Earth House, with DRMS taking over at 10:30. We would love to see you there.
Date: Saturday, October 27th
Time: 9 pm
Place: Earth House
