Hello everyone, These bands are all more recent discoveries for me, like treasures buried in a sea of many many Bay Area bands. :) Thus, I am very excited to feature them at this month’s SeaweedSway Showcase, in collaboration with the Songbird Festival. I’m also eager to see what Jeremy Dalmas comes up with for his in between set skit, as he tells me this month he will be re-enacting an episode from Star Trek: the Next Generation, when they are caught in a wormhole time loop... If that isn’t enough, my Mom will actually be at this show, visiting from Ohio, so come and say hi!
HEAR & LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BANDS:
SALT MINDS (Dearest + Mariee Sioux)
Salt Minds is a relatively new collaboration of Sean Kae from Dearest, Mariee Sioux, & friends. Folk chords and harmonies with tripped out electric guitars and synthesizer, welcoming new technology into "folkish" music.
il gato originally was conceived as a performance art piece by Gainesville, Florida native Daimian Holiday Scott while studying architecture in Vicenza, Italy. Guayaveras, the Italian language, the Spanish language, and covers of Enrique Inglesias and Boyz II Men were to abound. Perhaps thankfully, most of the original ideas have took their departure and a new, more unhinged face has arose.
The current incarnation of il gato may best be described as indie-baroque-folk: utilizing repetition and a broad pallette of instrumentation (acoustic guitar, trumpet, violin, mandolin, banjo, upright bass, harmonica, melodica, banjo, drums, etc.). il gato writes emotionally complex songs about love and loss and how if you are going to be a lover in this world you are undoubtedly also going to be a loser and how maybe that isn't such a bad thing. Maybe it is even a beautiful thing.
Falling somewhere between old Country Folk Blues artists (Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, etc.), Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse, Andrew Bird, The Arcade Fire, M. Ward, Phillip Glass, The Dirty Three, Devotchka and Beirut, il gato is emerging in it's own space and surely will keep growing and changing as if there was really a choice.
LUCKY CLOUD (EP Release)
Lucky Cloud is a three piece band of multi-instrumentalists producing atmospheric, futuristic pop; featuring Zack Ehrlich (of The Botticellis), Michale Landis and Amanda Harper
Jeremy will be performing, for the first time ever, a live production of Star Trek: The Next Generation Episode "Cause & Effect". About a time loop wormhole or a time warp loophole? With performing help from Christi Ginger & Julie Grossman.
SeaweedSway is an evolving project to encourage, cultivate, & support community through music, movement, yoga, & nature events. SeaweedSway started as a list of recommended events in the Bay Area and continues to be that, but now also presents music shows & events featuring musicians and artists who share similar creative intentions.
Thanks for supporting local music & hope to see you at the show!!
