    Allegra Krieger // Yotoco + Dados De Dios 9/27

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

     

    Allegra Krieger is a Brooklyn based songwriter & composer. With emotive lyricism weaving through explorative harmony, her songs are at once cathartic and compelling. Her first full length LP will be released spring 2020.
     
    "Yotoco’s music isn’t salsa, son, cumbia, merengue or psychedelic rock; it isn’t rumba, funk, bomba or plena. It draws from all of those traditions, transcends them, and creates something unique, trippy, and extremely danceable. Sebastian Lopez and Natalia Perez’s vocals are authentic and rootsy. Gabo Tomassini’s conga playing is crisp and well-versed in afrolatin music.  Evan Garfield knows exactly when to be understated on the drums, and when to bring the funk.  Natalia Perez’s guacharaca completes a rich percussion section, and combined with Sebastian’s strong bass, they keep the group grounded in contagious rhythms.  To top things off, Geovani  takes us on a mountain journey of traditional puerto rican cuatro.  Occasionally, Geovani also takes on bass duties, and we are treated to Sebastian’s accordion, which evokes a traditional parranda in some small town in Colombia, like the town of Yotoco in Valle del Cauca, for which the group is named.  Yotoco’s music may be hard to classify- but it is very easy to party to." - -Ricardo (Tres+Dos) Luiggi

    Arc Iris •acoustic concert• Oct 4

    7:30 doors $15.00 online / 18.00 at door (Cash Only)

    https://venuepilot.co/events/27722/orders/new?fbclid=IwAR2HqVfZateegcf8yHj4OdW9x7MpPg6v7GyiD9TqTvi75sdj-ocqBtK-kuU

    Providence, RI art pop trio Arc Iris fuses story-based songs with dense electronic and orchestral arrangements. The group, which began as the solo project of Jocie Adams, formerly of The Low Anthem, includes keyboardist and sample artist Zach Tenorio-Miller and drummer Ray Belli. Arc Iris released its acclaimed self-titled debut in 2014 on ANTI/Bella Union. Subsequently, the band toured with artists such as St. Vincent, Jeff Tweedy, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The group’s sophomore record, “Moon Saloon,” released on Bella Union in August 2016, represents a natural progression from the first album’s whimsical explorations and energetic diversity. Produced by the group and mixed by electronic producer David Wrench of FKA Twigs and Jamie xx fame, “Moon Saloon” showcases beat-heavy melodies and textural, groove-riding rhythms. Following the release of “Moon Saloon,” the band toured a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’. In late 2017, Arc Iris teamed up with Guster’s lead singer, Ryan Miller to form the offshoot band, Bwahaha, and in early 2018, Arc Iris joined Kimbra on her North American tour. Later that year, the trio released back to back records, “Icon of Ego”, on Brooklyn label Ba Da Bing Records, and “Foggy Lullaby”, their re-imagination of Mitchell’s ‘Blue.

    An explorer of the human experience and the mysterious forces of life, Keren is a multidimensional songstress and channel for the soul and for the senses, combining elemental textures with sultry and powerful story telling. 

    Rubycon raises the noise floor under dancing feet, opening portals of perception with an oceanic sway. Romantic vocals croon messages of unity, rebellion and revelry over lush synths, toothy guitars and bouncy beats. Feat: Ian Turner, Eric Lane and Daniel Dor

She was the winner of the 2014 Shure Montreux Jazz Vocal Competition and has since toured Europe, backed pop sensations like Shawn Mendes and Vic Mensa, shared the stage with the legendary Al Jarreau, and maintains a career as a front woman for Brooklyn-based pop duo, Lohai, and her own project reminiscent of Emily King and Lianne La Havas.
