The Babies (mems of Vivian Girls/Woods) w/ Fins and Ghost of Chance at BAR 11/14

Another great free show at BAR on Wednesday, November 14th. The Babies promise a great show and they will be joined by CT's own Fins and Ghost of Chance, returning bright eyed and bushy tailed from their east coast tour!



From the Facebook Event Page:


The Babies
In the winter of early 2008, Kevin Morby moved into Cassie Ramoneʼs small apartment in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, for a few months. Kevin, who plays bass in Woods, and Cassie, who sings and plays guitar in Vivian Girls, wanted to start a band. They both missed the sweaty loft shows they used to play before their bands moved on to larger venues and longer tours. So they wrote some songs on acoustic guitars and casually talked about playing s

ome house parties.

The next winter, when both Woods and Vivian Girls had a longer-than-usual break from touring, they came back to their idea. Justin Sullivan, who had played with Cassie in Bossy, began practicing with them on drums, and the Babies debuted in March 2009 as a three-piece at Dead Herring, their friendsʼ loft in Brooklyn. They played a few times before asking Nathanael Stark, formerly of Bent Outta Shape, to join on bass, and the full lineupʼs first shows were that summer.

The Babies recorded and played shows in fits and spurts, whenever they all happened to be in town for a week. They recorded their self-titled debut album with Jarvis Taveniere at Rear House Studios, which doubles as Kevinʼs home; his vocals were done in his own bedroom. (Jarvis, Kevinʼs bandmate in Woods, has also recorded Real Estate, Vivian Girls, and Woods.) The debut album follows 7″ singles on Make a Mess Records & Wild World.

The Babies' songs are roughed up jewels that come from the same cloth as Hazlewood/Sinatra, VU/Nico, Pisces/Linda Bruner & other dream marriages. The band will tour the West Coast again in January, where theyʼre temporarily relocating for the winter to write their second record, before going to Europe in the spring of 2011.
 


Fins
New Milford, Conn’s Fins channels elements from the past in a way that keeps the music cutting-edge. The group’s distinctive style can only be considered other worldly. They’re noise punk with melody—blistering your ear drums as the group soars through sonic auroras. Fins have been generating scuzzy, moss pop in the rural sprawl of northwestern Connecticut since early 2012. Rejecting most social conventions the trio spend their nights hacking melodies from their dense, woodland surroundings. After touring in various noise-punk projects over the past five years, Fins are ready to take their searing snake rock sound straight to the moon… or where ever they crash land first.
  
 
 
Ghost of Chance
Ghost of 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 and garage rock 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 knowledge.
