WHO’S PLAYING? Two Piece Animator (St. Joseph, MO) Cupcake (St. Joseph, MO)
WHAT TO EXPECT? Weirdness…
Two Piece Animator came from the ashes of The Ramey Memo and is more mature now. They are better musicians and taking on a new sound. Their set of mainly originals references their love of alternative rock in the vein of Pavement and The Pixies.
Cupcake (as with any Marc Darnell project) has a sound of their own. Their erratic music will leave you guessing throughout the set and just when you think you know what is going to happen Darnell and company will do the exact opposite. Each show is an experience of it’s own and couldn’t be replicated if they tried.
WHERE IS IT? The First Ward House, 2101 St. Joseph Avenue, St. Joseph, MO 64505
WHEN IS IT? Friday, February 22nd, 2013; 9:00pm, 21+ $3
WHY SHOULD I GO? It’s an interesting pairing. The First Ward is the hot bar in St. Joe right now. It’s pretty full every weekend and this show of two St. Joe heavyweight bands should be no different. Cupcake has been part of the scene for years and this is just Two Piece Animator’s second show.
