Every 4th Saturday we bring some of our favorite bands to Connie’s Ric Rac for a Gashouse Radio event. Our first one was a huge success and we are really looking forward to this months show. Saturday, January 25th please join us for the following:
Fantastic Planet: I cant believe it has taken this long to get FP on a showcase! This is an awesome band that we have known for years. A unique sound that has been in regular rotation since the beginning. A danceable, mini-orchestral, glitter sweeping, bucket smashing, rock and roll voyage, whose base camp is out of Philadelphia, PA. Go to their Facebook page for more information. You are gonna love this show.
Plastiq Passion: This NYC band saw an opportunity to take an older genre near and dear to their hearts (new wave) and add to it a modern edge (a la Sleater-Kinney). Add a little blood, sweat and tears and from the fires Plastiq Passion was born, a band with a clear vision to make the music that they would want to hear: polished and heart-felt songs blending the sounds of yesterday with the sounds of today. Check out plastiqpassiontheband.com for more info.
Amber Ladd: Fresh off her album release party for eleKtro, Amber is looking forward to making her debut at Connies Ric Rac. Originally from Canada, Amber spent the last few years growing her electronic sound in Boston, MA. This summer AMber moved to the hilly area, recorded the new album, and is now looking to get it in front of as many crowds as possible. Go to amberladd.com for more info on eleKtro as well as more upcoming shows.
Khalid Quesada: Another artist that his been in rotation on Gashouse for years. Khalid has been in studio several times. Weve seen Khalid perform with his full band once before, and we are definitely due to see these guys again. Khalid writes extremely catchy songs that will stay with you long after the show is over. Think Elliott Smith, wearing an Elvis Costello t-shirt, fronting Weezer for fans of The Beatles. But alas, it’s so much more. Go to khalidquesada.com for more info and show dates.
So join us Saturday, 1/25 at Connies Ric Rac! Whenever Gashouse Radio hosts an event, we giveaway CDs, tees, etc in between each band. Tickets are only $8, 21+ and the show starts at 8pm. Please got to the Facebook event page, RSVP, and spread the word!
