Qiet

Sunday April 2nd

Doors open at 6:30pm, music starts at 7:00pm

 


We love hosting great bands that don’t sound like anyone else and are hard to describe, let alone categorize. Well, Qiet is the hardest to describe we’ve ever had, but here we go…

Qiet is ridiculously fun and energetic. They play horn and fiddle spiked pop-rock that blends in bits from gypsy jazz, funk, soul, and folk music. They remind us of Talking Heads, not because they sound similar, but because both play smart music that makes people dance.

“The album is a sort of a carnivalesque, vaudeville revival with funk/soul breaks and Klezmer interludes. Dispatching with the failed attempts at categorisation, this album is a lot of fun. The standout track on the album is the manic ‘Cosby Sweater’, a song that begs to be played on repeat and has me involuntarily snapping my fingers along to the beat.” – Seattle Pi on their debut album

“Kiss of the Universe is Qiet’s most fully realized album yet, with horns, violins and Vincent’s larger-than-life vocals punctuating songs filled with dark humor, surreal wordplay and the existential poetry of a life lived on the edge. It’s the kind of stuff that could become pretentious in the wrong hands, but Qiet keeps everything grounded with danceable rhythms, inventive arrangements, and tons of hooks.” – Spotlight West Virginia on their latest album


This is going to be a great show. We hope you can join us!
