Cure Your Case of the Mondays with Marbin by Ryan Smith

Monday, Oct. 10

“Two guys from Israel and two from Chicago playing really fast. Guitar, bass, and a tiny saxophone.”

Or, even just “Marvin with a b.”

Those are straight-ahead self-descriptions for Marbin, an instrumental prog/jazz/rock outfit that is, in actuality, all over the place – beautifully, and deftly so.

The Chicago-based band is hard-working, and its do-it-yourself ethos has landed its incredibly talented members shows in more than 1,000 locales over the past six years or so. That’s made for a lot of fans: They’ve sold more than 20,000 albums, too. And there was that one month about a year ago when a couple of their videos got over 1.5 million hits on Youtube.

Now, suppose you’re a real music-head. Now, suppose these guys are coming to Erie.

Suppose you’d best not miss this.

Marbin will be bending all sorts of sound barriers – and local prog-jam favorites GNOSiS (along with another band to be announced) – will be joining in the fantastic voyage at Basement Transmissions on Monday, Oct. 10.

That really ought to get your head (and the rest of you) in the right place for the rest of the work week. – Ryan Smith
