When: Fri., Nov. 28, 10 p.m. 2014
Here’s a delightfully trippy group of local acts that you can dig for free as you try and escape the lingering turkey smell in your house. Carnival in Romans—the experimental trio of cellist/guitarist/vocalist Sean McCarrey, bassist Peter Hensel and drummer Chris Maddin—makes oddball ambient tunes adorned by fractured waves of gentle pop. You can grab their new album for free at carnivalinromans.bandcamp.com. Meanwhile, Vegan St. Tacos and Josh Glenn (above) play, respectively, jazz and Americana-inflected indie-pop and experimental-folk hallmarked by looped acoustic guitar explorations.
