Doors at 7PM – Show at 8PM
PHOX is from Baraboo, WI, which is a place where kids often drink poisoned groundwater and become endowed mutants. The six best friends who make up the ensemble happen to be blessed with madness, illusions of grandeur, and the inability to do the same thing twice. They also play music.
Openers – Upstate Rubdown
“Imagine the Andrews Sisters fronting a band that swings with the dizzying drive of gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.
That’s the pulse, the emotion, the roar, the tug and the eras evoked by Upstate Rubdown, an eight-, sometimes nine-piece ensemble based in New Paltz that, while utilizing amplification, relies on acoustic instruments and a three-piece female vocal section with harmonies as thick and sweet as syrup.”
