Satruday, May 19th at The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor
$15, doors at 9
Ever since the release of their acclaimed funky metal debut, Rad Times Xpress IV, Black Bananas continue to ripen and play host to interesting growths and cultures. A petri dish of blasting rock and bubble-gum-brown-note funk, the new groove machine from Royal Trux and RTX's Jennifer Herrema has so far laid waste to 2012 audiences across America in both headlining and supporting roles. The group - Jennifer Herrema (vocals), Brian McKinley (guitar), Kurt Midness (bass, synth), and Jaimo Welch (drums, samples) -- is about to hit the road yet again for the whole month of May! Together, they conjure a new twist on Herrema's out-of-focus rock sound, slammed home with slinky beats and glistening details. Previously touring with Sleigh Bells and Heavy Cream, they'll now traverse the country with Kurt Vile and the Violators, plus play a bunch of headlining dates with Dwarr (for their first tour ever!) and Magik Markers.
