Head on over to Burt’s Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW) tomorrow night at 9pm for a wide-ranging gig showcasing a number of touring bands from Cali along with local stalwarts. Headliner Modern Pantheist, a psychedelic outfit, hails from LA. The trio features singer/songwriter Chris Anderson, drummer Dave Ferrara and multi-instrumentalist Chris Sandler. Their sound has been described as mind-bending and trippy, but you should also expect some pop sensibility and sentimental narrative thrown into the mix.
On the other hand, Cuddle Formation is a bit more esoteric with a spacious sound that has its basis in electronic vocals and choral experimentation. Contrariwise, Emily Reo composes and performs music that takes a more traditional approach to instrumentation and vocalization, although her recent Auto-Tuned version of Fleetwood Mac classic “Dreams” is notable for its syncopated percussion track and ennui-generating, plaintive vocal style. With local dream-makers Ballets and Holy Glories starting things off, this show promises to make the generally dreamy summer nights in these parts specifically space-oriented. There is no cover for this concert, except the vault of stars above. Burt's Tiki Lounge • Wed Jun 11 • 9pm • FREE • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar
