CONTEST – Celebration @ The El Mocambo – November 26, 2007
Everything I know about Baltimore, I learned from The Wire and watching some Orioles games. But obviously the drug trade and Camden Yards aren’t sufficiently representative of bmore because neither of those explain Celebration. And I’m not sure I can explain them either as the rich blend of jazz, gospel, soul and art-rock on their second album The Modern Tribe would be difficult for someone with a broad expanse of musical knowledge to describe, let alone me.
And so I won’t try. Instead I refer you to this feature in NOW, the audio-video supplements below and their upcoming show on Monday, November 26 at the El Mocambo alongside Dragons Of Zynth (whom eye profiles) and Sebastien Grainger. And that last one I can help you with because courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. If you want, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to Celebrat(ion)” in the subject line and your full name in the email body. And do it before midnight Thursday night. That is all.
