Additional Information

Los Angeles-based trio SIR SLY are one of those bands that have seemingly come out of nowhere, popping up to the no. 1 spot on Hype Machine in early February and becoming a must-see act by the time they rolled into Austin for SXSW 2013. Playing melancholy electronic rock with a chillwave twist that was initially thought to be a FOSTER THE PEOPLE offshoot, SIR SLY are piercing hearts with their downbeat but commercial ballads. There is still an air of mystery and anonymity surrounding the band, but they're gaining traction with a recently-released 7" on tastemaking electro-pop label Neon Gold that has fans and critics yearning for more. Adding to an array of new, young and exciting voices in the current R&B revival, Detroit's CHRISTIAN BERISHAJ emerged under the name JMSN in early 2012 when he released †Priscilla† on his own White Room Records. A spaced-out slow burner that falls in line with the likes of FRANK OCEAN or MIGUEL, the album is bleak and beautiful, overflowing with JMSN's heavily-affected vocals and narcotic beats that feel like floating in dark ocean waters with no land in sight. Check out BERISHAJ's recent collaboration with emerging rapper AB-SOUL, an album titled Unit-6 that's slotted for release later this year. Chicago's EVAN IRELAND will be opening tonight's show, playing tracks of his debut LP, last year's Ten Songs About The Last Six Months, a record of mind-melting ambient house that's airy and atmospheric and tranced the fuck out. Don't miss it.
