Ghost Of Chance, The Gentle Stunts and Spectral Fangs are headed your way! The second date is 8/3 @ The El N Gee Club
This series of shows was inspired by constant listens to our summer mix D60 (which you may have seen popping up for free in CD and tape format at various shows across the state) wherein it became clear that these three bands, aside from being made up of the nicest chaps ever, sound REALLY good together. So much so that the thought came "these bands should play a show together" and somehow then turned into "these bands should play several shows together!"
This is going to be awesome and everyone involved is REALLY excited about this. Here is the breakdown of the bands (from their Bio's):
Ghost Of Chance
Chance are an experimental rock band based in New Haven, Connecticut.
The group's distinctive style is characterized by subtle time signature
changes and sonically open experimentation set to surrealist lyrics.
Ghost of Chance's sound takes its influence from 1960s psychedelica,
'70s glam, math rock and post-punk while maintaining the shimmer of
classic pop sensibilities. All of this adds to the unique yet familiar
sound that Ghost of Chance have cleverly cultivated. Engaging the
audience with a nervous energy and the desire to communicate, Ghost of
Chance share a sense of imperativeness with great pop predecessors like
the 13th Floor Elevators and John Cale -- sincerity combined with pop
The Gentle Stunts
Stunts is a solo act with guest appearances from friends on various
tracks. Over the past 2 years, I have begun to develop an insatiable
love for writing and recording songs. I am 20 years old and am about to
release my 2nd LP. I have dozens of other songs that surround my two
albums, which have either not fit the mood or were a result of the
growing pains that come with recording.
He awakened from a dark dream in which he was a miniature vampire to
find that the sunlight reflecting from his incisors made a rainbow
spectrum across his bed chamber ceiling. That's where the name came
from. Now the music, that's a different story. Drawing on his near 10
years experience as headmaster at a prestigious private school, he
crafts songs about The Human League, and the difficulties they
encountered during their rise to fame. Taking on a new identity as Spec
Tralfangs and bringing in former students to fill his sound out, he is
now ready to shake off the shackles of dreary New England life.
