Doors: 8:30pm Show: 9:30pm Ages: 18+ Tickets: $5 at Door (surcharge of additional $5 for under 21) In 2009, Big Mean Sound Machine formed in Ithaca, New York with one goal: to create music that stimulates both Body AND Brain. The result is a fiery exhibition of artfully conceived dance music that truly is Big and Mean. Today, BMSM comprises a collective of over 15 analog artists spread out over the Northeastern United States, who strive day in and day out to reanimate and reinterpret Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz, Fusion and just about everything else, all through a postmodern lens. Anyone who has witnessed The Machine live in action knows that their performances are among the heaviest and the sweatiest. Anyone who has heard their studio releases also knows that they can refine this complex sonic force with maturity and clarity that allows each composition to blossom to its fullest. As of January 2013, their performative efforts have extended to the big screen as well. With the release of DR. IGUANA: LIVE IN THE STUDIO, a live DVD shot at Grammy Award-winning studio Electric Wilburland, the Big Mean Sound Machine adds more critical acclaim to that received from their CD releases, 2012's Marauders, and 2011's Ouroboros. In addition, in 2012 Big Mean released Warrior, a joint effort with vocalist Jay Spaker a.k.a. J-SAN (John Brown's Body, JATAS), and later in 2013, BMSM will be releasing an album with Ghana's Yao Foli "CHA CHA" Augustine (Mosaic Foundation). The Big Mean Sound Machine maintains a busy performance schedule, captivating cities all over the Northeast United States- spreading further each day. For those [like us] who are tired of the status quo, there is good news: THE BIG MEAN SOUND MACHINE HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED.
