GIN BLOSSOMS + VENUS MARS PROJECT
FRIDAY | FEBRUARY 24 | 8 PM
Presented by The Cabot in partnership with M.E. Productions
For more than two decades, Gin Blossoms have defined the sound of jangle pop. From their late '80s start as Arizona’s top indie rock outfit, the Tempe-based combo has drawn critical applause and massive popular success for their trademark brand of chiming guitars, introspective lyricism, and irresistible melodies. Gin Blossoms soon unfurled a chain of crossover favorites spanning five different formats, from “Hey Jealousy” and “Until I Fall Away” to “Follow You Down” and the GRAMMY®-nominated “As Long As It Matters,” earning the band sales in excess of 10 million in the U.S. alone.
“It’s a really rare thing,” singer/guitarist Robin Wilson says of Gin Blossoms’ continuing saga. “So many chapters in this long story.”
Wilson, guitarist Jesse Valenzuela, and bassist Bill Leen co-founded Gin Blossoms in 1987 and quickly became the toast of the Grand Canyon State’s local scene. Blending an array of influences – from The Beatles and The Byrds to The Band and The Buckaroos – with pure pop songwriting and their own post-adolescent energy, the band hit upon a truly thrilling sonic approach that instantly set them at the forefront of the always-adventurous American underground.
Venus Mars Project is an original, high-energy, power pop/rock band with a unique, edgy sound. Singer/songwriter Jacyn Tremblay and guitarist/singer/songwriter Peter Tentindo have come together from their respective sonic realms to create a truly unique and thought-provoking new musical experience. Venus Mars Project has performed at venues such as Mohegan Sun Casino’s Wolf Den, Hard Rock Café (Boston), The North Shore Music Theatre, The Cabot Theatre, The Larcom Theatre, Vinegar Hill Theatre and many more. The band will be recording and launching their first crowd funding campaign during winter of 2017. For more information on the group, please visit: http://www.venusmarsproject.com
