Music: The Luck Pushers deconstruct pop on Wed., Feb. 26, at 8 PM

Luck_PushersThe Luck Pushers will perform at the Best Video Performance Space on Wednesday, Feb. 26. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.

In 2013, The Luck Pushers formed to perform music for YOU and, let’s face it for themselves: Music addicts Shawn Persinger, Mark Schwartz and jef are discovering along with their audiences the joyful journey of seeing how many different hats they can comfortably wear in terms of musical styles. The formed under the premise of performing as your favorite live Karaoke band, but immediately expanded to regular gigs playing Country Music and exploring the deconstruction—and resurrection?—of pop songs old and new in some avant-garde way.

Persinger has been teaching guitar since forever and is now famous with his publication The 50 Greatest Guitar Books. Schwartz is a dentist and kindred WHO fanatic with jef, their drummer, who fronted his band in Poland, Ə, (yes, that’s a schwa!) as a vocalist in the late 90’s.
