"Marah in the Mainsail is performing at Martyrs' with Ode and Distant Brothers!
Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Marah in the Mainsail's sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world.
Ode is a five piece group made out of sticks, strings and memories that stare at them from the past, like sling shots, drawn back, ready to let go any time something goes wrong. But they stick together, bass or no bass, rent or no rent, slowly but surely they are mistaken for a gypsy ensemble that plays rock'n'roll- punk and Bolero ballads.
With a dynamic blend of folk, rock, bluegrass and world music Distant Brothers brings a unique sound to any project they take on. Their most recent album, Upon Our Arrival, typifies this diversity while showcasing myriad styles and instruments. The bedrock of the band's sound is their ability to join their four distinct voices into rich harmonies. Whether playing barn-burning bluegrass music to a raucous crowd or delicate soul stirring ballads to intimate audiences, Distant Brothers' goal is and always has been to bring people together with their music."
After months and months of practicing and hard work in the studio, we are thrilled to announce the release show for our first full length album (title to come later).
We are doubly excited to be able to share this project with you and perform for you at Wire in Berwyn, IL along with our friends Moonrise Nation and Mike Flood and Co., both fantastic Chicago artists. We guarantee that you will quickly become fans of both these talented groups just as we have.
We expect to have pre-sale tickets available for $10 for those looking to purchase a hard ticket in advance, but will also be able to purchase tickets online very soon on Wire's website. Otherwise, tickets will be available for $12 at the door. It is a 21+ show.
And of course, we'll have copies of the new album as well as fun merch to buy.
We are incredibly excited to announce to you all that we will be making our debut appearance on House of Blues Chicago's legendary stage. We will have more details very soon.
