If you’ve missed out on catching a live performance from Austin-based eight-piece Chief Perch, you’ve got a golden opportunity this weekend! Only a couple years into their time as a group together, Chief Perch boasts Ariel Herrera’s vocals at the forefront, backed with trumpet, saxophone, trombone, keys, auxiliary percussion, and of course the essential, guitar, drums and bass. The result is an aurally expansive but technically tight foray into the electronic future of funk. Chief Perch released their debut full-length Shoulda Coulda Woulda last year and they’ll be performing live this Friday at Spiderhouse Ballroom alongside Willy McGee. Prepare yourself for Chief Perch’s live presence with track six of twelve from Shoulda Coulda Woulda – “Far Away”.
