We return the Nectar Lounge in Fremont/Seattle in support of Dirtwire’s international Tour. Dirtwire, self-dubbed Swamptronica, is the brainchild of Beats Antique founder David Satori, Evan Fraser of Bolo and Mark Reveley of Jed and Lucia. Also joining the bill the Argenta, BC’s duo Moontricks.
Dirtwire: In their Words
Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a whirlwind of sound using traditional instrumentation, world percussion, soundscapes, and electronic beats. Each performance brings us all to a mysterious crossroads of beats, blues, African, Asian, and South American sounds. The result is a rebirth of Americana and a post-millennial psychedelic journey to downhome goodness.
