MIGHTY w/ Behold The Brave, The Gills, African Americana at The Bird
December 17, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 1:45 am| $5
Mighty is a proclamation from a small, unlikely voice that demands to be heard. Whether you like it or not is just, like, your opinion, man. He’ll still be skateboarding in his driveway, either way.
African Americana doesn’t simply want to reclaim the white colonial ‘Americana’ in the same oxymoronic terms as the nebulous “Native American” tradition from which it draws. As an aesthetic that appropriates the continent’s indigenous tradition, add the ‘African’ to the ‘Americana’ and you not only have another antithetical term but a subversion of said appropriation while applying, hip hop, anime, cyberpunk and tech noir themes to create a electronic rock soundtrack for a post apocalyptic Great Gatsby.
The Gills will be bringing their energetic and trashy live show out on the road this fall including playing The Bird. Interesting fact for this band, their bass player (Andy Prince) also plays in manchester Orchestra!
Behold the Brave are a rock band from Nashville, TN on tour. So come and chekc out the first timers as they will be kicking things off at The Bird!
