ELEVEN POND return to the stage on February 16, 2012 to play their first live show in 23 years!
Original vocalist James Tabbi and main songwriter Jeff Gallea are reuniting for one unique performance of playing songs from their debut album Bas Relief. Joining them are Barret from Revel Hotel on electro percussion and Abby from Dream Affair on synths and violin.
Bas Relief was originally released in 1986 on Game Hen Records in Rochester, NY and the very first re-issue on Dark Entries in July of 2009. It spawned the highly addictive song "Watching Trees" that was included on'Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics Vol.1'
:: OPENING ACTS ::
++ FRANK (JUST FRANK) ++
Wierd Records recording artists Frank(just Frank) are from Paris, France. Their debut album, The Brutal Wave, was released in 2010. "The Brutal Wave draws from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively - layering lush washes of atmospheric anglophilic guitars above a warmly orchestral analogue synth and drum machine fueled minimal electronic backdrop. Equally of disparate origins are the band members themselves, Chris was born in New Jersey and grew up with half-Indian Kirti in the South of France, although both were schooled in London. Despite such varied influences and backgrounds, Frank(just Frank) indeed proudly embrace the French pop musical tradition and present a freshly recontextualized version of the french cold wave sound, which might well be most appropriately called ‘La Vague Froide Moderne’ in 2010." - [Wierd Records]
++ PLASTIC FLOWERS ++
A pop music project fronted by Sean Earl Beard. "Bittersweet melodies of alienation, the charms of romantic detachment, the possibility of coloring one's less-than ideal surroundings with sounds that dramatize and enhance what might be otherwise too drab to take -- these are the raison d'etre of Plastic Flowers. Beard's story is in some ways fairly classic--small town boy from an unstable home leaves it all behind to come make music in the big city. But familiar farmboy rock and roll imagery dissolves as the picture of a former punk kid from sunny Florida transplanted to overcast Brooklyn making clever yet heartfelt electronic pop comes into focus." -[Wierd Records]
