MAR3 Take Off Tour 2017 Marah in the Mainsail at Icehouse

Last Triumph Presents: The Take Off Tour to SXSW with Marah in the Mainsail and Good Morning Bedlam

Kicking off Friday, March 3rd at Icehouse MPLS
10:30PM | 21+ | $8 adv, $10 dos

Beginning in Minneapolis, MN and ending in Austin, TX for one of the largest multimedia festivals in the world, South By Southwest (SXSW), the Take Off Tour is truly a unique experience. Each concert boasts an ensemble of incredible musical talent from Last Triumph Records.

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Marah in the Mainsail’s sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry’s gravel voice alongside Mariah Mercedes’s crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by aggressive percussion, growling bass, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between.

Although classified as a folk band, Good Morning Bedlam’s music is influenced by many different genres, including rock, bluegrass, metal, and jazz and Traditional Gypsy music. They are four artists who are deeply passionate about both music and performance. Good Morning Bedlam’s simple vision is to tell stories, and the best way they can tell those stories is through their songs. When Good Morning Bedlam performs, they want the audience to be singing, dancing, laughing, and experiencing the emotions in the music itself. Their songs are stories, and stories bring people together.

JC4 (JC Sanford Quartet) CD Release

JC Sanford celebrates the release of his quartet CD “Can You Believe It?” on Red Piano Records. DownBeat magazine describes Sanford’s playing on the album as “a warm, unforced sound. He solos with clear direction while avoiding overplay.” Canada’s Textura describes it as “a well-rounded and well-crafted set that shows Sanford and company breezily settling into broad stylistic terrain, jazz naturally but funk, rock, R&B, and Latin, too.” He’s delighted to be joined by stalwarts of the Twin Cities creative jazz scene: guitarist Zacc Harris, bassist Chris Bates, and drummer JT Bates.
