AIRPORT / EDDIE JAPAN / SOFT PYRAMIDS
$10 advance / $12 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:15 show
Airport is a Boston band all about big twang, singable, sweet, hooky, jangly, old school 70s-inspired rock. Eddie Japan combines '60s baroque pop and mod influences with the less restrained tendencies of '80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound. And the moody, groovy, and melodically sweet Soft Pyramids are supporting their first full-length release, Fossils of the Free World, released in September 2014. Together these three bands will make one helluva night down at The Lizard Lounge!
A Boston band all about big twang, singable, sweet, hooky, jangly, old school 70s-inspired rock. Chiming chords billowing in the breeze of sugary melodies and stacked harmonies; reflective, driving down the highway, coffee shop, whiskey-drinking, melodic, sing-along, "remember when?" memory-jolting, rock, soft rock, countryish, popish music. Raised on K-tel, AM/FM radio, Hee Haw, Crowded House. Sometimes-rock/sometimes-Americana/always-melodic. Five guys neck-deep in the Boston and beyond scene (Waltham, Boone, Electric City, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents), doing a wee-bit twangy and lots of singing thing. And, oh, that pedal steel.
Go Up, Airport's debut recording, is available on iTunes and Bandcamp. The singles "Long Time" and "Maggie" were released early this year and are also available. The band is currently putting their finishing touches on a new six song EP.
Boston's Eddie Japan combines '60s baroque pop and mod influences with the less restrained tendencies of '80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound that stands apart from the beats and banjos of today's indie scene. The band was recently described by the Boston Herald as "...a circus of jazzy horn lines and girl group cooing, of swinging '60s cool and odd '80s new wave." A sextet with two female backing vocalists, the sound is expansive and the performance energetic, with frontman David Santos summoning the swagger of a young Tom Jones and the dramatic ache of Morrissey.
Winners of the 2013 Rock 'n' Roll Rumble. Their latest EP "Modern Desperation Part 1", and recent single "Fight Song", dedicated to the 2011 Wisconsin protesters, are available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
The moody, groovy, and melodically sweet Soft Pyramids are supporting their first full-length release, Fossils of the Free World, released in September 2014. Mixed by D. James Goodwin of Yellowbirds, Kaki King and Devo, an album is rife with yearning vocals, dusky atmospherics, art-guitar flourishes, and deft grooves. The band were featured in Paste Magazine's 2012 "Best of What's Next Issue." Soft Pyramids have been featured on Vanyaland, Allston Pudding, Ryan's Smashing Life, and Obscure Sound. Extensive gigging in the Boston and New England regions let to the invitation to perform at the Boston Music Awards' 2014 season kick off event, Sound of our Town, on the Lawn On D along with other artists including The Both, Eli "Paperboy" Reid, and The Grownup Noise.
