What Cheer? Brigade with Pink Navel and The Veazies

the baddest brass band on planet earth

One of our all-time favorite bands What Cheer? Brigade returns for another summer dance party! The Providence-based 19-piece radical brass band has brought their music to city streets, American Legions, tiny dance clubs, parking lots, alleyways, and island ferries... and that's just in the state of Maine! Mixing the sounds of Bollywood, the Balkans, New Orleans, samba and hip-hop with punk intensity and classical precision, they prove that great parties need no electricity. Since 2005, they've shared the stage and collaborated with a who's who of the music world: Blondie, Dan Deacon, Man Man, Japanther, Dengue Fever, Okkervil River, Lightning Bolt, Wolf Parade, Matt and Kim, Slavic Soul Party, Sage Francis, and Chain and the Gang, to name a few. Requiring no amplification, their live shows defy boundaries—literally. Their SPACE sets have ended in the streets... 

Opening the shows are the off-kilter beat and rhymes of Ruby Yacht Makers Guild member Pink Navel and the surreal diva pop dreams of The Veazies (featuring Janane Tripp of Vistitations and 3D Jet Scooter).
