Baccano is teaming up with Dropsickle and The Rare Occasions to bring you a night of pure New Age rock and roll and talent at Brothers Drake Meadery. Bring your dancing shoes and a sunny disposition and we'll bring the rest.
Drawing inspiration from greats like Led Zeppelin, Herbie Hancock, Parliament, and King Crimson, their well-versed style flourishes and grants them the ability to perform in most any setting.
Baccano first began developing their sound in 2014, and over the years have garnered interest from venues, bars and fans alike. Early 2017 saw the release of their debut EP «Amalgam» that helped Baccano gain quick traction and helped catapult them to the next level. Things aren't slowing down for Baccano in 2018 as they have just recorded their first full length album «Best Eggs» as well as two live studio music videos all set to be released within the coming months. In the meantime, Baccano is hitting the road this Summer with a packed schedule to help promote the new album to new fans and friends.
The Rare Occasions
Drawing inspiration from each successive wave of garage rock, The Rare Occasions put their own dark spin on retro. Pairing dizzying cacophonies of angular riffs with sweet indie pop melodies, The Rare Occasions have crafted a multifaceted and charismatic brand of indie rock. The Los Angeles quartet’s three self-produced, critically-acclaimed EPs demonstrate the band’s capacity to keep the listener in anticipation, from the blistering psych-anthem “Dysphoric” (Feelers) to the dreamlike “Bug Eyes” (Futureproof). This variability and depth of styles, layered with lyrical themes of existentialism and self-reflection, are what both define The Rare Occasions and set them apart.
The band first turned heads in their native Providence, Rhode Island when they won the WBRU Rock Hunt, headlined the Summer Concert Series at Waterplace Park, and performed in front of packed audiences at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel and The Met. Meanwhile, they tore through the Boston club circuit, building a dedicated following.
The Rare Occasions went on to perform for festival audiences at SXSW and CMJ, as well as open for international touring acts, including Guster, Dirty Heads, Lupe Fiasco, AJR, and Knox Hamilton. “Dysphoric” took home the coveted ‘Song of the Year’ award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2014.
This year, The Rare Occasions have been expanding their West Coast presence and establishing themselves in Los Angeles. In the midst of all their live shows, the band is recording a set of new material that shows the dramatic development of their expansive style.
