Miracles of Modern Science @ Cake Shop
Miracles of Modern Science kicked off a 3-week residency at Cake Shop on Thursday night, June 10th. Opening that show were The Royal Chains, Quiet Loudly, and The Albertans...
"You could say The Albertans are from Vancouver, Canada, and in a limited way you wouldn't be wrong. You could also say they lay claim to a creative pedigree from the Brooklyn autoclave and expect only one retort: Right you are. Musical polyglot and songwriter Joel Bravo, a native of Milwaukee, and bassist Ian Everall, Albertan by birth, met while members of New York's Bravo Silva. When that outfit ended they, along with a large and talented rotating cast of players, began playing in New York City under the name Sex with an Angel. They played CMJ in 2007, they moved to Vancouver in 2008, took up the name The Albertans and, along with a few new fellow travelers, took on the challenges of realizing a pop vision." [Ernest Jenning Records]The residency continues this Thursday, June 17th, with Dinosaur Feathers and more. Pictures and a video from week one (of 3 of the 4 bands), below...
