(blurb copied from facebook posting)

If you only knew what we went through to lock in this show... It's worth it though, all of these bands are mind-blowing. Seriously, ask anyone who came to see Slow Six last semester - they're almost TOO good.

Please invite your friends!

============= Band Descriptions ==============

[Slow Six]
Website: //
Slow Six are a Brooklyn outfit led by Christopher Tignor, who experiment with live sampling and digital signal processing to create brooding and beautiful ambient music somewhere between post rock and neo-classical. One really can't put into words how amazing this band is. For fans of Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Kronos Quartet, etc.

[Charlie Everywhere]
Self-described as "a culmination of unique urban influenced rhythms, and psychedelic melodies, with combined technology and organic textures," Charlie Everywhere present their unique take on electro-indie pop with female vocals. By blending hip hop influenced samples and beats with the synths and melodies of your favorite indie band, Charlie Everywhere's resulting sound offers something for everyone.

[The Red Lions]
Project mastermind Eric Margan calls the Red Lions "a fine mixture of popular song, classical virtue, jazz chops, folk storytelling and timeless lyrics. Music which draws upon countless influences, borrowing and blending elements resulting in an original sound to which most listeners reply with an affecting familiarity." I'd elaborate, but I don't think I could make it any more accurate. I hear a variety of bands in their sound, ranging from Nick Cave to the Beatles, but I'm sure you'll hear an even wider selection of influences. This is classy.

[On a Scale of 1 to 10]
Epic post-rock in the vein of Explosions in the Sky. From soft, ambient melodies to driving crescendos, On a Scale of 1 to 10 play instrumental pieces fitting to be heard in the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. Except less nerdy.
