Film Brothers? Fish Castle? What are these nutty two-word phrases?
Well my friends, just like “Hot Breakfast,” these are two-word phrases of AWESOME.
Film Brothers is a downtown Wilmington storefront-turned-performance space– but it’s also a gallery! It’s an internet broadcast center! It’s a screening room! It’s a center for diverse artistic endeavors! It’s a floor wax! It’s a dessert topping! And it’s located at 205 N. Market Street in Wilmington’s new hipsteriffic LOMA district. The atmosphere is intimate– you’ll get to sit up close to the rockstars, and if you’re lucky, you might even get to sit on a couch while you watch the how. A COUCH! Who knew rocking could be so darn comfortable? Hell, go ahead and wear slippers to enhance your comfort… Matt probably will.
Fish Castle is an acoustic duo that honestly defies adjectives. I’ll be honest; I’d never heard them before, but Jeremy from Gable Music told me how much he loved their music, and how much fun a double-bill would be. I checked them out on YouTube and was immediately sucked in. What voices! What melodies! What rad instrumentation! I used to run an old coffeehouse a bunch of years ago, and man oh man, I wish I’d known them then, because I’dve had them playing there all the time.
Now, you might be thinking, “Wait a minute. I know that both of these groups are acoustic duos, but Fish Castle is on the folky side, and Hot Breakfast! is on the dorky side. Is this pairing really a good idea?”
To which we reply in all caps for emphasis:
“MY GOOD PEOPLE: BACON AND CHOCOLATE ARE BOTH FOODS, JUST LIKE FISH CASTLE AND HOT BREAKFAST! ARE BOTH ACOUSTIC DUOS. BUT LIKE BACON AND CHOCOLATE, AT FIRST YOU THOUGHT MEATY-SALTY SHOULDN’T GO TOGETHER WITH CHOCOLATEY-VELVETY… BUT THEN YOU ATE IT AND HAD AN ANEURYSM OF DELICIOUSNESS. SO TRUST US. WOULD WE STEER YOU WRONG?”
WHEN: Saturday, December 17th, 7pm (That’s early!)
WHERE: Film Brothers Movie Co-Op, 205 N. Market Street Wilmington, DE 19801.
HOW MUCH: $6. Cheap!
I think this is going to be a KILLER double-bill… their music is haunting, thinkitty, and rich… ours is– well, you know. I am really looking forward to this. Hope you are too!
