*Make it a full day of film and music by attending the 4:30pm screening of the documentary, Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl, including a Q&A with the film's creators, Amy Goldstein and Anouchka Van Riel.
PaviElle's sound often has the faint flavor of Sly and the Family Stone, or seems to draw on the influences of little Jose James, and Rufus—with the soulful feel of Bill Withers occasionally evident in the groove.
Static Panic is a conduit for those who are truly passionate about the human experience. The objective: to reach out and express through our collective and unique backgrounds, sharing our journey in the form of music. Music is a truly universal language that everyone can recognize. Our paths are uncommon and tread by none but us; trailblazers in a sea of self-doubt and uncertainty of our own validity. We all have our routines, the world around us and the people around us are constantly shifting and changing. Isn't it nice to have something in common?
Hailing from Minneapolis, their debut EP Chrome is a deliciously honest look into sexuality and self- discovery. From the broken-hearted synthrock stylings of “Anthem Of The Lost,” to the heavily Prince-inspired seductions of “The Crazy Thing,” this collection of songs is unapologetically brazen and aims to get your blood pumping. The catchy melodies and pop sensibilities of “Lose You To The Night,” and “Feel It,” convey versatility and an eagerness to breach a social barrier of coping with social anxiety and relationships torn asunder by space and time. Static Panic presents a vivid, visceral set of images and themes consistent with a universal experience throughout the course of the journey we call Chrome.
