Tea Bazaar music tonight; new Left & Right music video

July 11th, 2013 · 2 Comments · By

At the Tea Bazaar tonight:

Other Colors from Baltimore, who play “exploratory pop” and “future folk-rock.” Their 2011 self-titled album sounds like old-school bedroom recordings: lo-fi production, pop slightly less cracked than Ariel Pink, and to me almost a 60s vibe reminiscent of folkie weirdos like Syd Barrett or Pearls Before Swine.

Charlottesville’s Girl Choir play classic indie 80s/90s indie rock (like, you know, Husker Du and stuff), and consists of Matt Datesman, Colum Lechi, and Maynard Sipe. The band’s been involved in the local music scene for years, and there’s a whole lot of history associated with its members. They don’t play around town too often, so I recommend coming out to see them.

The show opens with a solo set from local musician Adam Smith, member of Invisible Hand, Great Dads, Articulate Chewbacca, etc., etc.

Show up at nine o’clock with five dollars for the door. Here’s the Facebook event.


And, local band Left & Right have a new music video for a track off their 93 EP, “Virginia Settlement.”


The video is by local label/video production unit Hibernator Gigs, home of Weird Mob and other great acts from around town. Left & Right are moving to Philadelphia at the end of the summer, but the video features a host of their C’ville friends hanging out at a barbecue/in the band’s garage. The video’s hilarious and the song rules. You can read a profile of the band over at Oh My Rockness, the blog that debuted the video.

I wrote a longer post about Hibernator Gigs last month, and they have more promising releases slated for this year, including full-length albums from Weird Mob and Borrowed Beams of Light.
