WISP (GR) / Kevin McKay / Co-Stars
FREE FIRST FRIDAY
sonic rituals/psych folk/garage
So stoked to be bringing WISP to the east side of the state. I got to see them play in a packed living room about a month ago. I was totally captivated by the contrast between Jenn’s subdued/vibrant vocals and the dynamic sensibility of her band. A couple of extended heavier seemingly improvised sections washed over me and left me feeling rejuvenated. Would love to hear their John Andrews cover and I also caught wind of a Paint cover although they could effortlessly annihilate your perception of an ambient wall of sound by continuously droning for their entire set.
Kevin McKay w/ Tyler Hicks, Andrew Kuhn + Isaac Levine
kraut folk/ethereal wave/psych
It’s been a dream come true to have my arrangements brought to life in a full band setting. Gonna be joined by Tyler on bass this time. Maybe exploring some newer tunes or just honing in on some textural nuances.
Got to catch Co-Stars’ first show at UFO and was struck by the intimate lyrics delivered by Vanessa’s powerfully gentle vocals. Maybe I’ve been listening to Felt too much but I experienced a parallel approach to the deliberate arrangements and low key sonic palette of their early albums. Looking forward to the two piece version of this band w/ Natalie on drums!
This is a free show, but donations encouraged!
