Buke & Gass @ Mercury Lounge
"It's Buke and Gass' homemade quality that draws you in at first. Dyer plays a modified baritone-ukulele run through effects that squeal with delight, while Sanchez runs his guitar-bass hybrid through two amps (one for the three low-end strings, another for the treble). The junkyard-Shellac set-up is geeky, yes, and might strike a chord of novelty. But ultimately, it's hard not to be sold on the songs." [NPR]
Buke & Gass ended a short tour with Talk Normal at Mercury Lounge on Saturday night (12/11). The close-to-sold out NYC crowd included Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson who are sharing a bill with Buke & Gass in February. I wonder if Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon like Buke & Gass too. We know they like Talk Normal.
If you missed the show, Buke & Gass have shows coming up at Silent Barn (with Extra Life), Ridgewood Masonic Temple (with Deerhoof) amd the above-mentioned show at the Stone all before they head to the Netherlands to play some shows with The National, Owen Pallett, Efterklang, and Sharon Von Etten. All dates, an NPR Tiny Desk Concert video, and more pictures from Mercury Lounge, below...
