For many, the Fourth of July holiday is a flurry of activity – a desperate attempt to cram as much fun and merriment into the span of a few days as possible. That’s all well and good, but perhaps you choose to ease into the ensuing chaos and relentless heat of the long weekend with a night of mesmerizing and refreshing vibes to cool ya down – a calm before the storm, if you will. Will you? Ok, great.
If that sounds up yer alley, we’ve got ya covered. One-time Boston residents and recent California transplants Emily Reo and Cuddle Formation are wrapping up their cross-country tour tonight in JP. Both specialize in blissful and homespun (but deceptively complex) synth pop. For the uninitiated, Reo’s Olive Juice from last year is essential listenin’. This stacked bill is rounded out with some like-minded local flavor: lo-fi songstress Liana’s Fire and Via App, who’ll bring some more beat-oriented tunes to the table.
“Bring a friend, make new friends, come alone, make new friends,” declares the show’s Facebook event page. “We can’t wait to meet you.” It’s a fitting sentiment; this air of warm inclusivity is represented well in the music of all four artists. So roll down to JP tonight, basking in the summer air on your way over, and put those tired ears of yours under a dreamy spell.
