CASS MCCOMBS EMBARKS ON HIS TOUR

Cass McCombs embarks on his biggest U.S. tour since the release of this year’s critically acclaimed WIT’S END today, being joined on most dates by the Jana Hunter-fronted Lower Dens. If that’s not a double bill that interests you, you should get out of the music-listening game. This all culminates with early fall performances at FYF Fest and MusicFest Northwest. To give people a taste of what his live show will be like on this tour, he’s set the twinkling light work that will appear behind his band and him to the ominously gentle album track “Buried Alive.” Check it out, and then step out your door and check Cass and company out live in a town near you.

Smack Thompson @ The Fox Theater

Smack Thompson is a rock, funk, jam quartet fresh out of Boulder, Colorado. In the year that Smack has been playing together, they have won many fans with their deeply funky grooves and infectious melodies. Sky King, from Baltimore, Maryland, plays a nasty guitar and engages in a diverse range of appealing vocal styles. Otis Lande, from Boulder, Colorado, is the master of the low end and plays with a precise funkiness. Joe Havens, from Granville, Ohio, lays down funky beats like a metronome wish it could. And Stephen Thurston, from Boulder, Colorado, ties it all together with his virtuosic keyboard playing. You will hear original vocal and instrumental tunes mixed with the finest selection of covers. Come check out a show and get your Thompson Smacked!

Smack Thompson will play the Fox Theater on January 8th, so be sure to check them out.
