The first few days of 2017 have already been, for the most part, much better than 2016 in its entirety. Now that the holiday slump of shows is seemingly over, let's attempt not to fall into the valley of warmth our beds provide as an incredibly cold weekend draws near. We can say that we've got a bit of inspiration for this with tomorrow's show, featuring the attention grabbing 1939 Ensemble.
Drum connoisseur Jose Medeles fronts the group and if you know anything of his history (like owning Revival Drum Shop or, I don't know, drumming for the Breeders) the particular output of the group should be obvious. Featuring a variety of instruments including vibraphone, trumpet, Moog and general noise among the drums, 1939 Ensemble's instrumental post rock, post jazz fusion is enthralling and captivating, making for a very stimulating production.
Again, you can see 1939 Ensemble tomorrow with Ethiopian soul seven piece Tezeta Band and KMHD jazz DJ Derek Smith at Mississippi Studios.
