We’re please to announce the Night Idea CD release party and the first stop on their tour of the US and Canada! Night Idea is a band whose obsession with odd time signatures, slowly building momentum and simple, chanted vocals make for a serendipitous take on orchestral indie rock. It’s a unique, playful approach to progressively weirder indie rock that is written to awaken and surprise the listener at every turn. Witness these masters of strange pedal work, rhythmic syncopation and explosive breakdowns perform live on The Mainline stage at Ashland Coffee & Tea!
