Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin & P-Funk at Dream Theatre and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to dance til the sun came up. That's about as close as can be described without seeing Soap for yourself.
Like the band name, Soap’s music is undoubtedly fresh. With influences ranging from jazz, blues and funk to progressive, psychedelic and electronic, Soap skillfully fuses all of these genres into one – danceable rock. Set out to make every show inspiring, every note overflowing with energy and everybody move without remorse
Dance, rinse, repeat. Soap.
West of Aldine
West of Aldine has evolved from a small acoustic trio into a hot groove-oriented group in the past 2 years. They pride themselves on their genre flexibility by taking the constricting box of "pop" music and twisting it in a way that makes it flow with unique vocal precision and rhythmic articulation. The hooks are always catchy, the melodies are created with character, and the drums carry the dance floor. West of Aldine doesn't participate in a good time, they create it.
Along with touring all over the Midwest, they are currently in the middle of a self-initiated Keep The Music high school tour where they donate 20% of merchandise proceeds to music departments all over the states of MN & WI. Their freshman album - Undivided - was released on February 1, 2013 at the Fine Line Music Cafe. The band recently performed multiple showcases at both SXSW & RedGorilla Music Festivals in Austin, TX. They were also just awarded Best Overall Performance at the 2013 Beloit International Film & Music Festival. As always, stay tuned - more to come!
