Dreamy Folk Pop Vibrantly Soothing at BT
Basement Transmissions is taking a break from the usual chaotic sounds that can be heard around the block to give us a more toned down and mellow show.
Thursday, Nov. 10
Life can become hectic at times. Whether it comes from pressures at work, school, or an abnormally stressful election season, sometimes we just need to sit back and give ourselves time to cool down. Basement Transmissions recognizes this need, and is taking a break from the usual chaotic sounds that can be heard around the block to give us a more toned down and mellow show, by bringing Liz de Lise and her dreamy folk pop musings to Erie.
This Philadelphia native's vibrant yet calming guitar topped with her comforting voice are a recipe for tranquility. De Lise is currently on a national tour promoting her self-titled album, highlighted by tracks like "Baby," "Divine Lorraine," and "Empathy, Ok."
Local opening acts include Pine Diary, a soulful blend of indie, folk, shoegaze, jazz, and a hint of blues fronted by the remarkable voice of Jess Royer with Erie Reader's own Nick Warren on guitar. Royer especially shows off her wailing pipes in the song "Wandering Souls." Also from Erie are The Sex Blossoms, an acoustic duo whose voices complement each other and their music in stellar fashion.
We all need time to just sit back, relax, and recharge our batteries. So come out to the show and let the sonically stimulating songs soothe your soul, before getting back into the hustle and bustle of the real world. – Tommy Shannon
