Blues Control

Lea Cho, keyboards; Russ Waterhouse, guitar, electronics

Blues Control doesn't sound like any other band in history. A unique combination of keyboards, guitar and tape manipulation, the duo casts their palette wide. Invoking such different genres (sometimes simultaneously) as new age, krautrock and noise, Blues Control has found audiences on tours across the US, Canada, Europe and beyond. After releasing records on labels like Sub Pop, Holy Mountain and Woodsist, their most recent album Local Flavor was released by perennial Philadelphia favorite Siltbreeze Records. Now based in the Lehigh Valley, Blues Control have performed at the SXSW Music Festival, Museu do Chiado in Lisbon, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.

"There is blues in the band, but none of a specifically formal sort – at its highest volume and most violent, this is the ghost of whatever was kicking around in everyone's heads in the late 60s when metal wasn't codified as such and there was no such thing as a fuzz pedal too overdriven." – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide

Nevada Greene

Nevada Greene is an instrumental quartet out of Columbia, MO founded in January 2013. The band’s sound blends gentle finger picking and twangy guitar pop melodies with a textural wash of reverb drenched drones and melancholy string orchestration to create a pleasant, midwestern brand of ethereal cacophony. Paired with cinematic projections sourced from vintage family video archives, Nevada Greene's live performance explores notions collective memory and nostalgia.

Nostalgia (From the Greek nostos- a return to home and algia -longing) is a longing for a place and time that no longer exists or never has existed. It is a sentiment of loss and displacement but also a romance with one’s own fantasy. Originally thought of as a curable disease, doctors believed opium and open air could take care of nostalgic symptoms. While this practice has fallen out of fashion, one can never be too cautious and we recommend taking pre-emptive measures for an optimal listening experience.
