This event is 21 and over
Some bands meet at a concert, in college, through craigslist, or even get set up by Buzz Osbourne. Indigo Kidd, on the other hand, grew together. In a small agriculture town on the east side of Washington state called Yakima. The Bassist Dalton Willett and singer/ guitarist Eli Curtsinger have been playing and writing together since 2006. That doesn't really seem weird, until you realize that they were both around 13 years old at the time. So, like you can guess, they sucked and played Blink-182 rip offs for a couple years before discovering Nirvana and other Alternative music. They would recruit Eli's younger cousin Garrett Curtsinger to join their band in 2011, and the rest is history. They played as a band in high school, had a falling out, saw the world, lived life in different places, but inevitably came back to the group that worked the best.. It worked because it was never one very dedicated guy and two lackeys, or a singer/ songwriter combo accompanied by a friend. This band consists of three friends who were developed by each other's presence. They are a tight knit group, and the musical chemistry is just as strong as their chemistry as long time chums. Maybe that's the best part about this band. Most of the time, it seems that bands don't really get too interesting until you can see enough personality to process the dynamics of the group, and if there is one thing that Indigo Kidd isn't lacking, it's personality... Whether Garrett has just woken up from an anime binge hibernation, Dalton is scamming people with his rubrix cube, Eli got catfished again, or the whole band moves to Las Vegas because of the advice of a cynical writer they befriended at the coffee shop there is never really a dull moment with them. Even the band's exquisite art is made by their roommate/ aspiring graphic designer Alexis Lee. Have we inspired a sitcom yet? This band has been coined as Garage pop, dream pop, indie punk, and many others. They have also been likened to a "post-millennial Misfits" by KUNV 91.5 The Source and "Yakima's best band" by On Magazine of the Yakima Herald. That's just hype though, go see them yourself! And check out the recent release Mixed Tape For Senpai at indigokidd.com ... More releases TBA!
Sunday Clothes began as frontwoman Marielle Acac's solo project when she moved to San Diego, and upon return to her hometown Vegas, she expanded the project reuniting with Lewis Overcast- her decade-long drummer from previous projects, and later added the bass grooves of Michael Lucius, as well as Richard Mathews of Silent Movie Cinema on lead. They've been rocking various stages around the Vegas valley and have recently released their debut EP, Layers. Toting a smooth and dark sound with glimmers of sunlight, they've been compared to a mixed bag of artists like Bjork, St.Vincent, The Decemberists, Blonde Redhead, Jenny Lewis, Girl in a Coma, and others.
