Wheat is a band that always seems to be at the beginning of something special. Over the arc of a professionally improbable, yet creatively inevitable, nearly 20-year career (yes, you read that number right there's a zero after that two), band founders/co-conspirators Scott Levesque and Brendan Harney have never been stand-still sort of guys, content to repeat popular formulas or dwell on what came before whether triumph or tribulation.
Actually, they've never been content about much of anything. Which is precisely what makes Wheat artists in the truest sense of the word, restlessly conjuring new configurations of style, sound, and content from the tensile clay of their imaginations and then recasting and reshaping those forms all in the name of reaching for new epiphanies.
They've certainly attained quite a few since their 1997 debut, the lo-fi indie-pop stunner, "Medeiros" (more on that in a minute) took us all unawares in its undertow. In between, Wheat have run the gamut of the so-called "music business," from inside track to out. They've been signed to indie labels, major labels, more indie labels, and no labels. They've played Conan O'Brien's shiny, star-studded stage and the sticky, beer-soaked floors of your local rock club. In short, they've done just about everything that comes with the rare but ruthless territory of being artists who insist on remaining true to themselves.
On the occasion of a deluxe limited edition vinyl reissue on Shorebird of "Medeiros", Wheat will perform the record in it's entirety at Atwood's! The first set of the show will be "Medeiros", the second set will be songs from Wheat's vast catalogue and more!
