HOOD SMOKE | Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir
Bassist/composer/singer Bryan Doherty brings his critically-acclaimed band Hood Smoke to the Depot in celebration of their new album, Cannonball Porch (Ears & Eyes Records).
Hood Smoke’s sonic narrative illustrates timeless stories using beautifully simple melodies set to a rhythmic foundation built firmly from the bass up. Led by Doherty, the Chicago Sun-Times declared Hood Smoke a “must-see act” and Newcity described the band as “whip-smart jazz-funk-fusion” whose “lyrics are top-notch throughout”. Their latest album Cannonball Porch showcases Doherty’s vulnerable and melancholic voice on what he has described as “the most simplistic, lyrically creative, and to the point” Hood Smoke album to date.
Opening is Fairfield’s eclectic jazz-funk instrumental trio Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir with the ever fertile Hurlin brothers and Jimmy Moore. The band is set to release their debut record SO FAR SO WHAT, recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree, later this summer, in time for a late summer East Coast tour.
