Consider the Source Headlines a Mind-melting Evening at the Kings Rook Club by Ryan Smith

Friday, Sept. 23

From what I’ve seen, all kinds of people (from hippies and freak folks to metalheads and prog nerds) can really dig Consider the Source.

Because they’re pretty damn amazing.

The NYC trio of improv masters makes a joke of any standard genre typification, effortlessly marrying old, deep Middle Eastern and world influences with jazz, metal, funk, and everything else, including all the best elements of the Information Age-inpired new school of jam.

“If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band,” the band themselves say.

True enough.

As you could expect, Consider the Source is straight-up awesome live, so catching them – especially if it’s right here in Erie – is well worth considering.

And Consider the Source will be bringing their epic journey onto the Kings Rook stage on Friday, Sept. 23.

Local psych-jam favorites GNOSiS are the opening act, and Ohio-based prog-rockers Stereosphere close it out, so it’s sure to be a grand evening of mind-melting music at the Rook. Get in there to get out there. – Ryan Smith
