Review: Drunk off Dopamine with BØRNS and Avid Dancer at The Independent

BØRNS (photo: Ian Young) On Sunday, November 22 BØRNS entranced a sold out crowd at The Independent. Garrett Borns, aka BØRNS, already has a widely agreed "instant classic" after only one album that was released last month. Before the album was even released, this show was sold out. The moment I had heard about the show, it had already been sold out for months. With that being said, I came into that venue expecting to fall in love, and I did. Before I went to the show, I had experienced a weird long day. From working 8 hours at my day job, to [...]

Avid Dancer opening for BØRNS, bringing his psych-pop to The Independent tonight

Avid Dancer’s Jacob Summers was raised in a strict religious household, without access to secular music or even the Internet. His favorite childhood artists were Christian rock acts as anonymous to non-religious listeners as they are popular amongst music fans of faith; names such as DC Talk, Audio Adrenaline, and Sixpence None the Richer.

Instead, Avid Dancer is a project of cheery, sun-dripped goodness that approaches its earworms with a styled ease, one that [...]

Giveaway: Avid Dancer wants to see you dance

Avid Dancer is bringing all his moves to the Fox Theater this Friday, November 21, along with Cold War Kids and Waters. After growing up in a fundamentalist Christian household, he traveled the globe as both a world champion drumline drummer and a marine before following his heart to Alaska, where he wrote and recorded his debut EP I Want To See You Dance. Released on October 21 by Grand Jury records, the record is a soul-driven sum of his past -- cool detachment yet obsession with love and movement. Though he was virtually detached from secular music and pop culture until his late [...]

Kevin Morby (Woods, The Babies) playing free solo show in SF

Fans of Kevin Morby, rejoice! Morby will be playing a FREE show at the Brick & Mortar Music Hall on February 4th as part of Wood Shoppe's astoundingly FREE monthly shows. Rounding out the lineup is L.A.'s psych-popper Avid Dancer, Fine Points (side project of Sleepy Sun) and a DJ set by Zachary Carl-Os of Wood Shoppe. Did I mention it's free? As a Brooklynite, Morby started out playing bass for Woods and then formed The Babies, who I've always found more redeeming for the perfect musical partnership with Cassie Ramone of Vivian Girls. And then, proving he's not one [...]
