Show Crush: Jaggery (video premiere) / Box Five (album release) at Café 939 Saturday

November 11, 2010

Twofer” [too-fer] noun: an item or offer that comprises two items but is sold for the price of one*

That’s what we have on our hands Saturday night at Café 939, a two-for-one release show. Jaggery filmed a video for “Sea of Sideways” over the summer, and now it’s ready to be released into the universe. The band will play a full set before the premiere to get everybody in the right frame of mind; if you haven’t seen them before, they are a sight to see. Singer Mali Sastri’s vocals dance between playful whispers and demonic snarls as the band performs haunting, dark chamber music.

The second release of the evening will be the debut full length from Box Five, Leave the Earth Behind. Recently transplanted from Philadelphia, Mary Bichner is the mastermind behind Box Five and writes songs that defy genre by mixing rock hooks and pop style with inspired classical music progressions. She’ll be joined by a 12 piece orchestra featuring woodwinds, strings, rock instruments and even violin virtuoso Eliza Kopczynska, so clearly a special evening is planned.
