This event is 21 and over
The Curls claim to hail from Chicago but seem to mentally reside in outer space or perhaps the coconut tree-blood soaked hills of Hollyweird. The general consensus is that these people are total "wack-a-doodles" and must be "on something" to come up with this stuff. The group blends genres like health nuts blend smoothies!
Their music has been labeled as Psychedelic Pop, Art Rock, Nu-Angular Guitar, Piss Jazz, and even Hardcore Experimental Adult Contemporary Noise. The Harvard Crimson reported, "The Curls are a fun, nostalgic sextet whose genre fluidity necessitates a string of hyphenated descriptors—art-funk-jazz-psycho-punk-pop-rock doesn’t even cover all the bases."
An impressive and widely regarded performance at Pitchfork Music Festival 2018 has led to a growing and unstable fanbase. The Curls have shared stages with popular music greats like Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett, Maps and Atlases, Post Animal and Texas Fred. The group's 2017 self-released debut album SUPER UNIT received approval from legendary guitar rocker Adrian Belew (King Crimson, Talking Heads). Belew raved typing in all caps via Facebook Messenger, "I LIKE IT!"
Fernandez navigates his own personal world of musical endeavors, drawing on the influences of early electronic music, pop and psychedelia.
Sexy rock u can cry to.
