Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PMThe PsycodelicsAwarded City Paper’s 2021 Soul/R&B Act of the Year, The Psycodelics’ flavor of Black American music has blended foundations of blues, jazz and disco with fresh funk rock. With a stage presence as multifaceted and emotive as its lineup, the already-potent sound retains even greater magic to make you get up and dance. BirdLittle Bird is composed of musicians Jay Hurtt (vocals), Noah Jones (piano), Oleg Terentiev (drums), Ben Mossman (bass), and Jim Rubush (guitar). Their genre-bending, signature sound is inspired by their favorite modern and vintage artists Hiatus Kaiyote, Nick Hakim, D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder. Seamlessly blending jazz, blues, indie rock, and neo-soul psychedelia is apparent in their 23 track odyssey “PROXIMA”. Their latest single “SP ACE” is the second release from their next project “SWEET HAPPY LIFE” which will serve as the group’s musical and lyrical interpretation of the time and space we share. “It’s extremely likely you’ll fall headfirst for Little Bird, mere moments after hearing the band’s 2018 release Familiar. The heady mix of ambient soul, R&B, and trippy jazz puts them in the kindred spirit category to everyone from D’Angelo and Erykah Badu to Australian jam band Hiatus Kaiyote. And their unique sound is showcased by musicianship of the highest order.”Slim Soul and the N.O.
