Search & Restore presents Darcy James Argue's Secret Society & Fight The Big Bull at Subterranean A
Search & Restore is a non-profit based in Brooklyn, NY dedicated to uniting and developing the new jazz community.

Darcy James Argue is one of today's most talked-about jazz musicians thanks to the phenomenal critical response to Infernal Machines, his Grammy nominated debut recording featuring his 18-piece bigband, Secret Society. The record was included on more than 70 best-of-the year lists and won Best Debut honors in the 2009 Village Voice Jazz Critics Poll. Argue and Secret Society topped three categories in the 2010 DownBeat Critics' Poll (Rising Star, Big Band; Rising Star, Composer; and Rising Star, Arranger) and were the recipients of two 2010 Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards (Large Ensemble of the Year and Up & Coming Artist of the Year). The group has played high-profile concerts in New York and other US cities, as well as in Europe.

Fight the Big Bull was formed in Richmond, VA in 2005 from the areas recent college graduates. Since then we've had the opportunity to work with everyone from MacArthur "genius" Grant winning, avant-garde jazz saxophonist Ken Vandermark to Bon Iver. After being encouraged by a developing friendship and mentorship with Steven Bernstein they released their debut album, Dying Will Be Easy, to much acclaim on Clean Feed Records in 2008. Their next release All is Gladness in the Kingdom, featured Steven Bernstein in May, 2010. In June of that same year they released I Mean to Live Here Still, an album with singer/songwriter David Karsten Daniels, which was lauded by NPR and Pitchfork. Last September Duke University commissioned Fight the Big Bull and their friends Megafaun for a concert titled "Sounds of the South" featuring special guests Justin Vernon and Sharon Van Etten. They are currently preparing our next record and assembling the release of a series of recordings we did with K Records artist Karl Blau.
