Family Matters at Basement Transmissions
The Basement Transmissions family is offering a more enjoyable holiday get together this season.
Friday, Dec. 22
Reuniting with family over the holidays can be a mixed bag. Some people are thrilled to see long-missed family members, but others might dread being forced into awkward and uncomfortable situations with familial strangers. The Basement Transmissions family is offering a more enjoyable holiday get together, featuring both live music and stand-up comedy in the form of the BT Holiday Reunion Extravaganza.
Headlining the evening's events are Green Fingers, an experimental electronica trio unifying members of Joose, The Bloodlies, and the father of the BT family himself, Bob Jensen, creating the some of the most adventurous sounds in Erie.
Fellow Erieites on the bill are Cult Classics, a dreamy indie folk rock five-piece for your emotional catharsis and light dance moves. The vocal harmonies by singers Jess Royer and McKenzie Sprague are awe-inspiring; this is not a band you'll want to miss.
Next up is Pittsburgh solo artist Liss Victory. Victory puts her heart on her sleeve with her grunge-inspired acoustic songs on her EP The Low Lights Make Me Love You.
Mixing up the run-of-the-mill BT show is comedian Krish Mohan. Mohan's socially-aware comedy style intelligently and tastefully covers touchy subjects like religion and politics, bringing laughter and fun into normally dry topics.
The opening act on the bill is John Zuck, the unquestionably talented bassist of the experimental rock band Zuck's Turkey Farm.
So come join the BT family for the holidays, to support the scene and distract yourself from your own awkward family holiday reunions. — Tommy Shannon
