Tropics

Posted by on Apr 24, 2015

Who: Instrumental post-rock duo Chipper Jones was recently cited by Spin magazine as a band to watch this year. The mag’s review had plenty of praises for their 2014 prog-based full-length release, Two Rooms, filled with guitarist James Lambrecht‘s and drummer/keyboardist Charlie Martin‘s improvised performances and soundscape artistry.

What: Lambrecht and Martin are headed out on an East Coast/Canadian tour that includes stops in Brooklyn, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal and Toronto, and they’ll have new vinyl to share with fans, a two-track 7-inch release on Raw Paw Records, Tropics | Cosm.

When and where: Chipper Jones is kicking off their tour with a vinyl release show tonight at Spider House Ballroom, 2906 Fruth St. And it’s another massive party with Courduroi, Click Clack, Comforter, Casual Strangers and Caterwalrus. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Why: By the way, tonight’s show is brought to you by the letter “C” (see band’s names). Get there early to see all these bands. Recommended.
