DESTROY BABYLON with THE HIGHWAY and ALL OF THE ANIMALS
Thursday 5/3 -
ALL OF THE ANIMALS
$7 advance / $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:00 show
Destroy Babylon have spent over a decade refining their unique, immersive sound into a militant mix of reggae rhythms, soulful harmonies, and heavy dubs. Brothers Marc and John Beaudette keep their deep pocket rhythm section locked with a psychic twin sense while Rob Carmichael stirs up sonic guitar riffs with a smooth vocal finish. Add to that some of the finest organ and horn players Boston has to offer, and you have a group capable of getting any crowd on their feet. The band has recently supported some of their major influences and biggest names in reggae from around the world, including Lee "Scratch" Perry, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, and HR of Bad Brains. www.DestroyBabylon.com
The Highway - This indie-rock group brings the crowd to life with an energetic vibe that is hard to come by. Their ambient vibe and guitar-driven rock sounds merge amidst unique chord progressions and catchy hooks.
Born in Houston, Texas, and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Daniel Tortoledo possesses strong vocals and tasteful bass lines that give this band much of their unique sound. The phenomenal drummer, Ted MacInnes, fills the sound with strong beats that keep the crowd dancing, while guitarists, Ysaac Cohen and Victor Cruz put the listener at ease with their trance-inducing, harmonized lines, creating solid textures without getting in each other's ways.
They are a tight band with a unique style that is easy to love.
The band now splits the time between Brooklyn NY and Boston MA,
where they have a continuously growing fan-base. From heavy dancing to mellow swaying, The Highway has something for everyone in the crowd.
They connect with the audience through intense climaxes and soothing breakdowns.
The Highway released their debut album, Forest People, in September 2010,
which was awarded Album of the Month, by Deli Magazine New England.
Although their album is one that you'll have on repeat for months,
the essence of The Highway is truly captured at their live shows.
The Highway performance is more than just a concert, but an uplifting and soulful experience.
All of The Animals is an exotic groove extravaganza which welcomes ukuleles, Upright Bass, Percussion, Singing, SURPRISES! and FUN!!
