w. Here We Go Magic, Pillars & Tongues, Skye Carrasco
Friday, April 1 – The Mill – $10 advance, $12 door
A mélange of musicians with disparate influences, Dark Dark Dark craft beautifully arranged, powerful yet vulnerable chamber pop. The group, which began as a collaboration between Nona Marie Invie and Marshall LaCount, layers haunting voicework over instrumentation that reflects the pair’s artistic wanderings; you may see the band play accordion, clarinet, piano, cello, banjo, guitar, double bass and violin.
“We try to create a magical space with our performances,” Invie says. Their creations range from soulful dirges and Gypsy tunes to N’awlins jazz and minimalist ballads, and the listener is forgiven for wondering where–and even when–the group has arrived from. Dark Dark Dark is based out of Minneapolis, but also spends time in New York and New Orleans. Their newest album, Wild Go, documents the band’s continued musical exploration. Friday night, watch as Dark Dark Dark convert the Mill into a soaring, baroque soundscape, full of beauty and magic.
