The Archive Ravens with Baby FuzZ

Doors 4pm, Music 7pm

The Archive Ravens are equally passionate about creating new music and preserving music from different cultures and time periods. They are currently finishing their first album of original music, Trobairitz.

Refusing to be restricted by genre, Trobairitz is highly exploratory: it contains a Troubadour ballad, a Japanese cradle song, a musical palindrome set in the style of sacred music, a 50's/60's girl group number, a Samba dance tune, a James Bond-esque cinematic jazz piece, and much more. However, the messages underpinning the music are united by common themes - including an emphasis on resilience, appreciation for the natural world, and a resolve to be mindful of the current moment. Trobairitz seeks to capture the essence of many disparate cultures, in attempts to unearth the threads of humanity shared between us all.

The Archive Ravens developed out of an acoustic folk duo, Will Schantz (guitar) & Ava Sauer (vocals, keys), covering beloved tunes by Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, and other great musicians. Then, Tom Andolsek (guitar, saxophone, vocals) joined, and we began to diversify our repertoire. We now often perform with various friends, including Siena Facciolo (keys, vocals), Josh Miller (bass), and Chris Palace (drums).

With Special Guest: Baby FuzZ

Baby FuzZ, the latest project from songwriter Sterling Fox, is a bizarre alt rock/glam pop band and alter ego with a rotating cast of contributors and members. Baby FuzZ's music fuses a number of styles from rock and roll to soul to punk. Described as “one of the most slept on acts in music” by Hillydilly, Baby FuzZ released a litany of brilliant singles in 2018 and dropped the debut album Plastic Paradise in March 2019. Drawing comparisons to artists like Billy Corgan, Elton John, and Elliot Smith, it's hard to pin down exactly how to classify BF. In the past, Fox, the frontman of Baby FuzZ, produced “Video Games” by Lana Del Rey and has written for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, and Avicii, so there is a decidedly surreal pop sensibility to the project. With a charmingly diy ethos and an eccentric self produced album, Baby FuzZ just might be the strange new arrival the alt rock world needs.
