Growing at ATP NY (more by Zach Dilgard)
Growing and their bleeps, blorps, and bloops will team up with the killer guitar loop-stravaganza of The Psychic Paramount for a show at Death By Audio on June 26th, one of a pair of NYC shows for Growing. The gigs will serve as a warm-up for the band that recently became a trio (Sadie Laska of IUD is now a member of Growing) before they head out to jolly ol' England in the tail end of July.
The What Cheer? Brigade is a rowdy 19-piece brass band from Providence, RI. We play Luddite Hardcore, loud, mobile music requiring no electricity. We are a party band, and our sound incorporates elements of the following musical traditions: Bollywood, Balkan, New Orleans, Samba, and punk...In short, WCB is a band in the high school drum major sense, similar to their west coast counterparts Extra Action Marching Band, playing loud originals as well as covers such as Salt n Pepa's "Push It" and The "$25K Pyramid Theme" in the video below. The band also has a few MP3s for stream and download. Their Brooklyn show is one day before they play the 2009 Whartscape Festival in Baltimore.
