You have a fourteen-piece orchestra that trails you around and soundtracks your life as though it’s a spaghetti western. Languid strings accompany you to the vending machines. You clear the closing doors of the last Red Line and the car erupts with trumpets. The profiles of your Tinder matches are translated into Italian and read breathily aloud. This is life with Tredici Bacci, Boston’s slickest, syrupyest, shameless-est bunch of instrumental dramatists. You can’t really take them with you — but you CAN see them tonight at the Middlesex Lounge! They’re joined by irrepressibly buzzy Brattleboro duo Great Valley (NNA Tapes/Feeding Tube Records), fresh off a tour, and JP natives Cult and Leper (Leopard Shepherd Records/Blood Oath Slumber Party), who should have played the Twin Peaks High School prom. It’s all presented by pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS, who know how to put together an atmospheric night.
