SeepeopleS & People Like You
Fri, Apr 26 @ 9:00 pm
Doors at 8pm | Show at 9pm
SeepeopleS, which is the brainchild of bandleader/songwriter/producer Will Bradford, has released 5 full length albums and 2 EPs on their own imprint, RascalZRecordZ. It would be an accurate statement to say that there isn’t a single band on the planet that covers as much ground musically, or traverses through as many musical universes as SeepeopleS does. Musicians have long since taken notice and members of Morphine, Spearhead, Dave Matthews Band (Tim Reynolds), and even members of Parliament/Funkadelic are featured on previous albums. All seven records were co-produced by Will Holland (Pixies, New Pornographers, Dead Can Dance) The band has toured ceaselessly, playing over 1500 shows in 46 states during their long career. Most importantly, SeepeopleS features songwriting that is the definition of timelessness and lyrically have been busy writing the most important musical anthems of our generation. It may be long after our lifetimes before this band gets their due, but they certainly will. Nothing this good can remain hidden forever.
About People Like You
People Like You is “Music for the people, by the people, with no specific people in mind.” -Chris Hislop, The EDGE. Juxtaposing vaudevillian gypsy punk mischief and psychedelic folk-rock madness with curious lyrical content and bizarre pop sensibilities, the sound is charismatic, inspired, a bit haunting, kooky, and captivating. The singer/songwriter tandem of rabble-rouser Eli Elkus and inter-dimensional wizard Andrew Polakow is the fanciful heart of the group. It is strange, yet familiar like a new friend you swear you’ve known all of your life. It’s the kind of thing that’ll kick your brain, rattle your bones, drop your jaw, tickle your fancy, turn your head and make you say, “Huh… I can get down with that.” The shows are amusing to say the least and an open invitation for everyday people, the straights, the freakers, and the funkies to get in on it, get strange, have a ball, and be a part of it all. It’s in the name – People Like You.
