impressive local acts showcased by Dive
The Diversions section of the Daily Tar Heel, the UNC student publication, are throwing the biggest, most economically feasible bash that Chapel Hill has seen since last Dive Party [December 9th]. I'm not familiar with these acts at all but these videos have really gotten me excited for the concert. Opener Jason Kutchama is the lead singer of Red Collar, local band that put out an impressive album in 2009. The Dirty Little Heaters are "Pound For Pound The Heaviest Band In The Area" but produce some great tunes behind Reese McHenry's great voice. The Beast is a jazz/hip-hop influenced band who utilize a stand up bass, an awesome experimental group that have struck gold with their fusion of the two genres. Luego seems to be a band comprised of local accomplished solo artists who make some great soft alternative, blues-infused tunes.
Take a listen to the bands, come out to the show. It would mean a lot to our editor who has put all this together flawlessly. He's lassoed a great lineup, that is sure to leave those in attendance, in a musical frenzy.
If you're not convinced yet, the new MGMT album Congratulations will be playing in between sets. A first listen to it before it comes out next Tuesday, April 13th. A few copies of Congratulations will be raffled off as well.
