Chesca, The Motion Census, & Tealights

Release Date: 2009-11-11

Atlanta-based art rockers Tealights fuse classical, electronica, and indie elements to create a sound they describe as “the love child of a circuit board and a music box.” Although they take inspiration from Björk and Radiohead, they’re more often compared to the Cranberries due to lofty, ethereal layers of vocal harmony. Also on the bill is Chesca (above), a local solo artist who looks awfully young for her level of musical sophistication. Chesca brings to mind the early samba-infused acoustics of Everything But The Girl, only with an ironic choice of instruments – she plays the kazoo, the ukulele, and has been known to repurpose Starbuck’s cups by turning them into tiny drums. $5, 9pm, G.I.G., 2803 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 837-2787,
