"Man Man is a refreshing breath amid today's polluted airwaves." - Spin
Now signed to the Anti label, Philadelphia's five-piece Man Man are poised to reveal a new level of delightfully quirky intensity with their new album. Known for kinetic live shows that draw on an arsenal of unconventional noisemakers and squeaky toys alongside vintage synths, xylophones, and even more conventional instruments, Man Man revel in exuberant theatricality and zeal for experimentation. The results are undeniably appealing, so brace yourself for the gypsy-swamp-rock-carnival-soul-come-what-may sounds of Man Man unchained.
Adding to the excitement is Yeasayer, the rhythm-stirring Brooklyn buzzband that Pitchfork (among many others) has championed: "Yeasayer channel both a dystopian science-fiction sensibility and deep appreciation for the natural world, employing a wide, international range of sounds. The result is a unique form of indie rock world music that resists stepping into the essentialist, ethnocentric traps consistently tripped by high-minded hipsters."
Note: Very limited seating is available for this show.
