PREVIEW: Middle Class Fashion to Release Jungle at Off Broadway w/ Humdrum and Kid Scientist
July 31, 2013
What’s better than a fully local bill of fine ass musicians playing together on a Friday night at the most welcoming venue in town?
That would be a FREE, fully local bill of fine ass musicians playing together on a Friday night at the most welcoming venue in town DURING CRAFT BEER WEEK.
On August 2nd, Middle Class Fashion releases their new full-length record, Jungle, at Off Broadway with support from Humdrum and Kid Scientist. The show’s sponsored by 4 Hands Brewing Co. and New Belgium MO, two grand patrons of the St. Louis music community.
And if you’re like me, it’s been way too long since you’ve witnessed Kid Scientist’s bright electro tunes light up a room.
The main event? Middle Class Fashion, Version 2.0 (or whatever), who’ll show up with a brand new album and a semi-new member in tow. Katie Lindhorst (The Glass Calvary) now supports Brian McClelland (bass), Jenn Malzone (vocals, keys), and Brad Vaughn (drums) with her voice and her synth, and this foursome exhibits the most captivating MCF arrangement to date.
Included on Jungle is “Golden Rose”, a snappy, addictive gem that once again demonstrates Malzone’s razor-sharp tongue and highlights McClelland’s talent on bass. (Read Chris Schaeffer’s Homespun review column from this week, where he wrote about “Golden Rose” first and more eloquently.) And don’t overlook “Everything”, with all its warmth and wistfulness, and experience the disorienting three minutes and thirteen seconds of a rarely disarmed Malzone.
If nothing else, watch this ridiculous (and ridiculously hilarious) promo video for the release show. We can’t wait to see you out there.
