Bozmo will be going on hiatus after this show, as frontman Bo Moore aims to build a new incarnation of the band in San Francisco this fall. Enjoy yr last chance (for a while at least) to hear their great songs live, which successfully draw lines between The Kinks and Steely Dan, or early Pink Floyd and The Flying Burrito Brothers.
MiniBoone join us from Brooklyn, en route up the Kahbang Festival in Maine. The quintet’s LP is mixed and mastered, ready to be unleashed on the public in the upcoming months. It’s big joyous angular post pop, as evidenced on “Brand New Thing” from their On MiniBoone Mountain EP. Local Garbagetown just shot a video for it, coming soon.
“Brand New Thing”
Pile are now part of the Exploding in Sound family, who have put out records by personal favs like Grass is Green and Speedy Ortiz. Listen to their Big Web 7” from last fall, and understand exactly where the band is coming from. Kinda like taking the loud/quiet/loud structure, deconstructing it, then putting it all back together.
“Afraid of Home”
Kal Marks are a local trio, fronted by guitarist and songwriter Carl Shane. Last year’s Goodbye Horses LP caught a good chunk of Boston offguard: chockfull of confident songwriting and (dare I say Dylanesque) lyricism, yet still sounding readymade for our Allston basements and beyond.
“Hey Hannah, You Forgot Your Gloves”
