Richmond, VA instrumental post-rock quartet Shy, Low will be playing the Fireside Bowl this Tuesday (7/3) with their hometown tour mates Comrades. Shy, Low are dynamic, with melodic ambience that can build to crushing chords and distorted bass. Comrades take a more technical, post-hardcore approach to their mostly instrumental music. The show will serve as the EP release for local headliner Loud Loud, and will also include a performance by the ambient, progressive pop quintet American Wolf. Like So will be opening with their pop-punk informed math rock. The show starts at 7:30 PM, and tickets will be available at the door.
Instrumental rock quartet An Aesthetic Anaesthetic will be playing Fireside Bowl the following Tuesday (7/10) with the more math-oriented instrumentalists Brownie Mountain. Also playing are a vaguely danceable post-punk band from Pennsylvania called Edelweiss, and Chicago math pop-rockers Options. The show starts at 7:30 PM, and tickets will be available at the door.
It will be An Aesthetic Anaesthetic's first show since opening for Battles at the Bottom Lounge, where they proved to be much tighter than their currently available albums. Their newest effort, NAMES, was recorded by Sanford Parker and will be released on August 8.
