BROODS (indie pop)


Doors: 7PM Show: 8PM Broods probably on around 9:30-10PM I first heard of Broods randomly on Songza (RIP) a few years back, and they happened to have played at the Observatory soon after, and are back to promote their new album. They started off as synthy, brooding (yes I went there) indie pop sound, and have evolved their sound over the years. About: Broods is a music duo from Nelson, New Zealand, composed of Georgia Josiena Nott on lead vocals, with older brother and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Allan Joseph Nott on production and backing vocals. They released the single "Bridges", which went to No. 8 on the New Zealand single chart, and signed with Capitol and Polydor Records. They released their self-titled début EP, Broods, on 30 January 2014, which was followed by a full-length album, Evergreen, on 22 August 2014. The band has toured with Ellie Goulding, Haim, Sam Smith, and Taylor Swift. They have won ten New Zealand Music Awards. On 24 June 2016, Broods released their second album, Conscious. They released their third album Don't Feed the Pop Monster on 1 February 2019. Parking: You can prepay parking when you buy your ticket for $10 general/$15 premium. I will likely get an early access dinner reservation, which allows for free parking as long as you dine there beforehand. You also get early access into the venue and better chance at getting a good spot.

Her's + The Undercover Dream Lovers (Dream / Jangle Pop)

Constellation Room

I’m suuuuuuuper excited to see my new favorite band Her’s!!! Hmmm what can i say… the 21st century’s romantically sprier & quirkier & cheerfully melancholier lo-fi version of Aztec Camera? The Smiths high on cotton candy meets Ariel Pink? Lol Just give a listen to their debut album “Invitation to Her's”, which has been my soundtrack to this dreamy gloomy wet winter. :) https://youtu.be/ULLILT2qmMU This duo was born out of the friendship between Stephen Fitzpatrick & Norwegian Audun Laading who met at art school in Liverpool, and their mutual enthusiasm for Twin Peaks. Ever since they have been touring as a trio together with the life-size cardboard cut-out of Pierce Brosnan... seriously HAHAHa lol Paste Studio live https://youtu.be/XFakdI1n58w?t=57 More songs ❤ https://thatbandofhers.bandcamp.com/album/songs-of-hers An interview w the band http://www.adhoc.fm/post/hers-interview/ ______________________________________________________ The Undercover Dreamlovers (Psychedelic Dream Pop) "The Undercover Dream Lovers is the psychedelic indie rock band whose name speaks for its smooth dreamy sound. The Brooklyn, NY based project blends vibrant synth melodies with grooving bass lines, topped with writer and producer, Matt Koenig’s, soft captivating falsetto." listen here -> https://theundercoverdreamlovers.bandcamp.com/ _____________________________________________________ Doors: 8pm Show : 9pm tic : $15 + fee https://www.ticketweb.com/event/hers-the-undercover-dream-lovers-constellation-room-tickets/9144695?pl=observatory&REFID=clientsitewp
