A little over a week after the release of their third album Best Blues, Brooklyn-based synth-pop group Small Black, head to San Francisco to shake up The Independent on Saturday, October 24. Since the introduction of the band’s acclaimed self-titled EP, Small Black has released three full-length albums on indie rock label Jagjaguwar. The foursome has since embarked on a tour in support of their latest LP beginning in early October.
The line-up consists of front-man Josh Kolenik (keys, vocals), Ryan Heyner (guitar, keys, vocals), Juan Pieczanski (bass, guitar) and Jeff Curtin (drums). Each member has been together since before the formation of the band, often living together to blend their unique sounds and talents into blissful chemistry.
For those not too familiar with the band, think space-synthesized dance beats over melodic keyboards, all accompanied by harmonious washed out vocals. Their latest single “Boys Life” proves that there is no other band out there quite like Small Black. The ability to meld guitars, synthesizers, keys, and vocals is truly something to respect and shows just how far the quartet has evolved since its inception in 2010.
San Francisco is lucky enough to host such a talented east coast act at The Independent this Saturday playing alongside local up and coming bands Painted Palms and Hazel English (Oakland). Do not miss your opportunity to see all three bands perform Saturday night. Tickets are still available; however, if money poses any sort of problem, The Bay Bridged is giving everyone a chance at scoring a pair of tickets to the show.
