Both Mogli and Fairy Boy are on tour together all the way from Halifax, Nova Scotia. They both perform energetic acoustic punk with great melodies and sing-along choruses. Mogli performs with accordion and sparse accompaniment, while Fairy Boy feature tons of people, instruments and raucus vocals.
Also one the bill are locals The Book Slave who will be playing an acoustic set! How will they pull that off? If you haven't heard The Book Slave's cassette demo All Bad Things, you are missing out. The guitars are somehow so dissonant and yet so lovely at the same time. I'm really at a loss as to how they'll be doing that acoustic. Dulcimer playing folk-punk solo artist Feral Flowers will be playing his first gig in a while. The guy sounds a little like drone/punk band remeniscent of Jack Rose outfit Pelt or Six Organs of Admittance. Lastly, New Haven resident Adam Matlock's project An Historic will be debuting some new songs.
A lineup like this doesn't come around often, and this is the show you need to be at Tuesday. And, it's early enough where you can still make it out of there in time to catch another show.
