Here is your official Austin Music Minute introduction to Belcurve, one of the newer bands to hit the scene, although chances are you may recognize each individual talent contributing to these dark and lovely pop escapades.
There is songwriter Sarah Castro, who has not only worked with several other bands but also stands out as a solo artist with an incredible vocal range and heart-piercing lyrics; Matt Parmenter (Quiet Company), working as only a mad-scientist gearhead would in creating unique sound palettes with an endless list of musical-based toys that would send any geek salivating; Blue Mongeon (East Cameron Folkcore) delivering the wicked guitar magic; the mighty Michael “Halftime” Peters giving it all on drums and percussion; and the resonant harmonies of one Deidre Gott (KUTX’s very own, full disclosure), bringing additional mastery of percussion/sounds and tambourine.
Technically – for the pendants with nothing better to do, all right? – Belcurve has played before, but their show tomorrow night at the Cactus Cafe marks their debut with Mongeon, so don’t miss out. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 8:30 p.m. And what a lovely debut it will be, sharing the bill with none other than AMM fave Carry Illinois. This one comes very recommended.
