Lakebottom Sound Series: Missincinatti at The Roxy Theater
Friday, May 17 at The Roxy Theater
Doors at 7, Music at 7:30pm
co-presented with KFGM Ballroom Sessions
Missincinatti, a Missoula-based quartet debuting new music crafted around forgotten stories and songs from Montanas mining era, will give a two-hour performance and live interview, filmed by KFGM Ballroom Sessions for radio play and public archive online.
Missincinatti cultivates songs with roots in the pre-industrial era, branching forward to an array of contemporary practices. Through lo-fi sound design, improvisation, and harmonically rich instrumentals, Missincinatti creates new work from old, in an act of sonic reuse and repurposing that dims the lights on old melodies, allowing inherent drama to emerge from the shadows.
Missincinatti dives into the salty seas of yore to uncover forgotten tales of shipwrecks, fantastical crocodiles, coal mining and many drunken sailors. These seasoned stories are told through chamber-esque compositions, field recordings, and timeless arrangements of old melodies. It's like the public library storytime hour for all ages. Missincinatti is Jessica Catron, Jeremy Drake, Jon Filkins, and Sarah Marker.
