Drop-Off Productions proudly presents the pure psychedelic R&B of Seattle’s Night Beats. The latest incarnation of Night Beats sees the band with both a new lineup and a new full length – Myth Of A Man is a reckoning, a shoot-out at dawn, the ear-splitting peel-out that leaves nothing but a cloud of red dust in its wake. It marks a new era for Night Beats and its frontman, Danny Lee Blackwell—an era marked by independence, expansion, and undiscovered facets of an undeniable talent. While Blackwell has always fed off the musical legacy of his Texas roots—Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators, The Red Krayola, The Black Angels and more paving the way for the napalm-coated psych-rock headtrip of past albums—Myth Of A Man has him pulling from the surrogate wellspring of Nashville, Tennessee. It was there that he worked with the eminent Dan Auerbach, and a murderer’s row of battle-worn session musicians—the combined weight of experience that comes from working with every legend from Aretha Franklin to Elvis not lost on Blackwell. With an arsenal of both Auerbach and the seasoned vets, Blackwell was eager to collaborate, their expertise and studied ears opening his songs up to new sonic directions. The result is an album that’s less of the bloodshot acid trip of Sonic Bloom (2013) and Who Sold My Generation (2016) and more of the hazy comedown. With its bold steps forward, Myth Of A Man serves as both a takedown and reintroduction of the band as we know it—the strongest evidence that you’ll never be able to pin Night Beats down.
Also on the bill are Denver-based rock & roller’s The Savage Blush. Formed by siblings Rebecca and Joshua Williams in the summer of 2014, the band churn out a dirty reverberated mix of Garage and Surf with latin undertones and Psychedelic elements-driving rhythms, hiccuped vocals, fiery guitar licks, and bass lines- it’s all rock & roll and it’s all here. This is a 21+ show at the world famous Surfside 7, Monday, March 18 – Tickets are $15.00 and will be available online at www.surfsideseven.com, the ticketing link below and the bar.
