The Lizard Lounge proudly welcomes back the mind-bending accordion, the funky pockets of a hyperactive Sousaphone player, and the banjo that thinks its a Fender Strat all at the core of the crazy dance party that is... THE PRIMATE FIASCO. And along for the ride? Almost Classy has an upbeat Rock-Pop sound with tight melodic harmonies and hints of multiple genres, including rock, pop, folk, and hip-hop.
PRIMATE FIASCO - To a deaf person, they look like a New Orleans dixieland street band. To a blind person, they sound like a rave DJ mashing-up house beats with 60s folk lyrics. To the police, its a busy day on the sidewalk.
The Primate Fiasco uses instruments that are loud without electricity, giving them the opportunity to attack at any moment, in any location, with or without permission. No one is safe, not even an elevator or city bus. If The Primate Fiasco sees a dull moment somewhere, they will pop out of the nearest sewer drain or trash can to lead an irresistible dance party.
On stage, the sound is different. This band has pioneered what is possible with mind-bending Accordion, funky pockets of a hyperactive Sousaphone player, and banjo that thinks its a Fender Strat. Add lyrics that grab hold of even the most inattentive audience and beats that channel surf like a remote thats been sat on. The music is always high energy and extremely imaginative. Most importantly, this is fun. People smile from the first beat to the last smoldering ash of what was previously a dance floor.

Almost Classy's members hail from all over the country, bringing with them a wide range of musical backgrounds. Together they craft an upbeat Rock-Pop sound with tight melodic harmonies and hints of multiple genres, including rock, pop, folk, and hip-hop. They have opened for such acts as Andy Grammer, Hello Goodbye, ZZ Ward, Thick As Thieves, Wilson Phillips, played all LA and were named the Los Angeles RAW Artists of the Year in 2012. They released their debut EP in the Fall of 2013 while touring and selling out shows from LA to NYC. While the band demonstrates a blend of genres and sounds, they also exhibit the unique ability to weave them into a cohesive style that is all their own. This originality, combined with a fantastic live energy, is what most excites audiences about them. The band has an invigoratingly fresh, and undeniably catchy sound that has broken the mold of what mixed genre bands can accomplish. They are refined, well thought, and truly Almost Classy.
