10-28 The Sea and Cake + Matthew Friedberger (of The Fiery Furnaces)
The Sea and Cake is a product of the fertile and active Chicago, IL music scene. The four members are all veteran musicians who share a common punk and rock background and numerous affiliations with incomparable bands like Tortoise, but have come together in this entity to uniquely blend¬†Brazilian music of the late 1960′s, African influenced guitar lines, and independent pop.¬†
After a brief hiatus, the extensive 20 year career of The Sea and Cake has come to a crescendo with their latest release The Moonlight Butterfly. It‚Äôs a new turn for the band marked by cinematic overtones, explorations in analog synths and a new boldness that boarders between intimate and distant. This ninth studio album is a testament to the longevity and consistency of a band who has such a clear artistic vision that their album covers have largely been done by band members.¬†
Matthew Friedberger, visionary frontman of The Fiery Furnaces will open the show.
