The Iceman Special & Peter More

Tuesday, May. 28th
$7 – $10; From: 07:00 PM to 12:00 AM

The Iceman Special:

The Iceman Special is a 4 piece outfit transplanted from the swamps of Louisiana to New Orleans. They create a sound that resonates with the psych rock community as well as writing songs that explore reggae, funk, melodic pop, prog, and other influences. The bands live shows are notorious for their intensity and their use of innovative and creative visual stimuli while also taking pride in song writing and the delivery of their message. Screeching yet smooth guitars, wandering yet punchy bass lines, synthesizers, driving drum beats, and powerful vocals form a one of kind soundscape.

Peter More:

You may have heard Peter More’s music produced by Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, live on tour with Grace Potter, or supporting Leon Bridges in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. At turns contemplative and rousing, More’s music is precisely executed, yet manages to feel original and uncomplicated; Music you want to hum along with and also hang on to every single line.
