Domefest Announces Late-Night Performances
What’s better than grooving all day to some of the best live music Domefest has to offer? That’s right… getting down to some epic jams long after the sun has gone down over the horizon.
Domefest has begun to announce its late-night artists and so far, they are bringing the heat. Thursday night, attendees will be able to experience the electronica-jam stylings of Broccoli Samurai and on Friday night, Consider the Source and Schwizz will collaborate to provide a special musical experience for everyone.
More late-night announcements are expected soon. Head on over to the official Domefest Facebook page for updates on additional performances and more information regarding the festival.
ABOUT BROCCOLI SAMURAI
Broccoli Samurai is a Cleveland-born premiere jamtronica and EDM project. Broccoli Samurai features Ryan “Bruce” Hodson on keys and synth, Chris Walker on drums and percussion, Zachary Wolfe Nagi-Schehl on bass and Michael Vincent on guitar. Samurai’s drum and bass influenced, progressive electronica has been thrilling audiences throughout the Midwest, winning the band spots at major events such as Rootwire, The Werk Out, Hyperion Fest, Summerdance, and The Mad Tea Party Jam, as well as direct support, club spots for such notable bands as Boombox, Lotus, Dopapod, Papadosio, Rusted Root, Big Gigantic, Conspirator, O.A.R., and Ozric Tentacles. Broccoli Samurai’s groove is the kind that keeps the crowd moving well into the wee hours of the morning. This band is making big moves and the time to take notice is now.
ABOUT CONSIDER THE SOURCE
Formed in 2004 in NYC, Consider the Source features Gabriel Marin on fretless double-neck guitar, bassist John Ferrara, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Mann. Called “the guiding light for his generation of six-stringers,” Marin channels the mystical fury of McLaughlin and Coltrane into wailing melodies, kaleidoscopic soundscapes and boneshaking riffs. With a background in classical musics both Eurpoean and Indian, and an instinct for avant-jazz and destructive metal, Marin’s hypnotic fusion of styles is ever unpredictable. Ferrara’s propulsive, percussive attack, equally suited to simple grooves and impossible chords, can ground the music or launch it into space. His madcap gumbo of slap bass, Indian rhythms, earthy minimalism and complex tapping constantly pushes into strange new worlds, whilst still dropping thick booty-clap beats. Underneath them lies Mann’s rolling thunder; dense rhythmic architecture built from pure swagger and bounce. Half double-bass prog-metal, half crackle-pop Buddy Rich swing, with African and Balkan swirls, Mann’s muscular, freewheeling polyrhythms are the engine fuel for Consider’s multiversal mischief. Even when not improvising, Consider’s music is always a conversation, a roiling stew of dynamic interplay. Each member of Consider the Source alternately leads and follows, spars and assists; in any single song, alliances are made and broken, bargains struck and divorces finalized.
Touring from coast to coast, as well as Europe and the Middle East, has not only earned the band thousands of fans, but has allowed them to perform with wide variety of well-known artists, including Victor Wooten, Wayne Krantz, King Crimson Projekt, Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee), Wyclef Jean, Andy Statman, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Dumpstaphunk, Keller Williams, George Porter, Jr., Jeff Sipe, Panzerballet (Germany), Eatliz (Israel), Freak Kitchen (Sweden), Morglbl (France), and many others. They have performed at numerous festivals and events, including Catskill Chill, The Big Up, Burning Man, Sun Seekers Ball (Canada), Mid-Summer Meltdown, Rootwire, the NYC Fretless Guitar Festival, and the NYC Gypsy Festival. The band’s newest album, “F**k It! We’ll Do It Live” is available from considerthesourcemusic.bandcamp.com.
