I bet you're sitting there in your chair, or standing if you're in one of those progressive-thinking workplaces...or a bouncy ball, thinking, "You know what? I would like a classy, relaxed evening of just pure good music. So much that I'd like to bring my friends to. The kind of evening that would leave everyone in awe of both my fine taste in music and the sheer fact we live in a great city." Well. That day is upon you, my friend! Saturday, September 17th brings Dark Dark Dark down from their homes in Minneapolis to ease you all into the colors and cornucopias of autumn. The group's album, Wild Go, came out in 2010 and swept up leaves of acclaim wherever the music managed to swing into due to its orchestral blend of Eastern European folk, chamber pop harmonies and the sweetness of singer Nona Marie's voice. It's as hauntingly beautiful as a long cherished, abandoned farmhouse with ivy overgrowing its porch steps once beridden by children's footsteps and laughter.
"Daydreaming" marked the official single from the debut, however you'd be cheating yourself to just stop there. Do check out "Robert", "Celebrate" and the sneakily sinister "Wild Go." You too can join the multitude of women and men who've been entranced at the Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements, September 17th at Eckhart Park at Chicago Avenue and Noble Street. Dark Dark Dark begins sharp at 6:00 PM in the Criss/Cross Tent. Tickets are available here.
