Semaphora and Gold Eris share the bill at Best video Film & Cultural Center on Thurs., Aug. 11. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.
SEMAPHORA (pan-coastal CT): the original music of composer and multi-instrumentalist Lydia Arachne, Semaphora combines a dense academic lyricism with floating grooves and fragrant harmonies to create unique songs that are often about animals or computers. Indie/jazz/folk/prog for the NPR crowd, Semaphora aspires to be the sort of band whose fans are accused of belonging to a cult.
GOLD ERIS (Bridgeport, CT): indie rock with an artpop/electronic twist, an original music project created by singer/songwriter Thomas Oliverio. Originally a theatre nerd from Somers, NY, Oliverio started composing music at age 15 before pursuing acting in college, instead triple-majoring in heartbreak, disappointment, and self-doubt. The debut GOLD ERIS record Born a Quitter (available on all major platforms) came out of processing those experiences. A second LP, which Oliverio describes as more reflective, cathartic material based in truth, is planned for release in the coming year.
