Laura Carbone with Angel-Maker / Pioneer Indy, Indianapolis
Sep

7:00 PM19:00

Laura Carbone with Angel-Maker / Pioneer Indy, Indianapolis

Thursday September 19 2019 8pm
Indy CD & Vinyl and Spellbound Indy Present

LAURA CARBONE (Berlin, Germany)
ANGEL-MAKER (Indy)

Performing live at
Pioneer Indy
1110 Shelby St
Indianapolis, IN 46203

Following on the momentum of her brief US debut tour in March, 2019, Berlin’s “Lynchian”* nightingale LAURA CARBONE heads back to North America with her band in mid-September for an extensive cross-country tour kicking off in Los Angeles and culminating at the end of the month with a featured slot at the Pop Montreal festival in Canada. The tour will draw on material from her highly acclaimed 2016 debut album “Sirens” and the rapturously received 2018 follow-up LP, “Empty Sea”. Carbone brings her unique brand of noisy dreamadelica to the American heartland for the first time, having established a jaw-dropping live reputation on previous tours with UK shoegaze legends The Jesus & Mary Chain, NY indie heroes The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and her own 2019 “Empty Sea” European headline tour. Writing “Empty Sea” between the dystopia of a harsh German winter in a small industrial town and the glaring sun-drenched haze of Los Angeles, Laura Carbone has trademarked her own distinctive musical atmosphere embracing darkness, friction, chaos and abandon, beautifully punctuated by bittersweet melodies and shining, sultry vocal performances.

*****
Alma Afrobeat Ensemble is set to tour the US for the fourth consecutive year. The Barcelona based band, started by native Chicagoan Aaron Feder, is presenting their fourth studio album, Monkey See, Monkey Do. This release is the natural evolution of Alma Afrobeat Ensemble’s unique brand of modern Afrobeat, and their most complete, comprehensive and eclectic work to date. While most other Afrobeat bands are going the afro-funk route, AAbE follows their own path once again, as they did with their first 3 albums. “Monkey See, Monkey Do” combines all the elements of classic Afrobeat created by Fela Kuti and Tony Allen while leaving the band’s own unique stamp on the polyrhythmic musical style.

On this tour, as is their custom, the group is joined by their American touring musicians. Matthew Engel on keys and backing vocals, Cody Jensen on percussion, Joshua Thomson on alto sax, Eddie Quiroga on trombone, and Dr. Adrian Barnett on tenor sax. Additionally, the band is lucky enough to feature Ms. Marga Mbande singing lead vocals, and lending her elegant stage presence to the band.

The band will be playing 9 dates in two weeks throughout the Midwest, so make sure and come check out their sizzling, dance-inducing live show as they are only in the U.S. once a year!
