!!! with Special Guests @ The EARL
!!! is a bicoastal band with over a decade of history. Offer, keyboardist Daniel Gorman, and new bassist Rafael Cohen (formerly of El Guapo and Supersystem) all live in Brooklyn, drummer Paul Quattrone resides in Pittsburgh, keyboardist Allan Wilson remain lives in Portland, OR while Andreoni remains in Sacramento, where the group was formed. Advanced preparation is reflected in their newest album, THR!!!ER’s, catchier choruses, bulletproof structure and masterful twists. “One Girl/One Boy” is pure dancefloor candy built over subversive sounds, while “Get That Rhythm” rides the bassline to a much darker corner of the club. Centerpiece “Slyde”—produced by the band and Patrick Ford—is a tribute to cut-and-paste classics in an era when sampling is prohibitively expensive, so !!! devised all the imagined samples themselves. Rough-edged album closer “Station (Meet Me At The)” might be the most menacing song the group has ever released, and they execute the switchblade attitude naturally.

The Left Field Experiment: Mono/Poly with Deku @ 529
Mono/Poly’s attraction to revolutionary sounds has made him one of the most sought-after up and coming producers in the world. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his astral soundscapes and mutated glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly (born Charles Dickerson) seals the deal as “one of the heaviest around” -according to BOOMKAT. Since his movement, Mono/Poly’s progression has created a genre of its own. From his anticipated debut of Manifestations on Brainfeeder, to his latest self-released shocker Killer B’s EP, Dickerson’s vast diversity has gained global recognition proving that he is a force to be reckoned with.
Mary Bragg and Marc Scibilia @ Eddie’s Attic
After several years of growing acclaim on the New York Americana scene, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Mary Bragg reached a peak in her early career last year when she attracted overflow crowds for a residency at NYC’s famed venue The Living Room. Her latest recording,Tattoos and Bruises, grew out of that series of shows. Drawing comparisons to Patty Griffin and Mindy Smith, Bragg has come to inhabit her own unique fusion of American musical forms, clearly heard and felt on Tattoos and Bruises. This show is FREE.
