Acorn Project, Dub Lounge International, and the Fabulous Party Boys are hosting a tour kick-off and CD release party at Seattle’s Nectar Lounge on Friday April 29th, 2011. I’m in NYC so I can’t make it, but check ‘em out if you’re in the area!
The show is celebrating 2 events in the Seattle-area indie music scene – the release of Dub Lounge International’s 3rd album, Behold and the beginning of Acorn Project’s spring tour. The event promises a fun mix of rootsy music and dance tunes to get you moving. DLI, for example, has featured Ezra Tosh (cousin of Peter Tosh), Winston “Flames” Jarrett, and Puddu Dawes (from Revelutionary Dream Band) on their past albums.
Dub Lounge International pays homage to the traditional forms of roots reggae, rocksteady, and live dub music as it was originally played and heard. Their blend of organic roots fulfills fans of many traditional Jamaican music genres. This event will mark their return from a West Coast tour and will be the CD release party for their 3rd album, Behold.
Bellingham, Washingtons Acorn Project are kicking off their spring tour with this show. Acorn Project boasts deep electro-funk grooves and sonic instrumental exploration, interlaced with a provocative indie-rock songwriting ability. A staple on the touring circuit of the Pacific Northwest, the group spent the past 3 years expanding their region and is a recognizable touring machine on the West Coast, British Columbia, through Colorado and the Southwest.
The Fabulous Party Boys are a young quintet of University of Washington music school veterans. They’ve been tearing up venues around the state with their brand of jazzy, experimental funk. They are not one to be missed.
