It's only happened once.
It's a Christmas party for lots of friends and family. The public is invited to join in the attic festivities. Let's steam up the windows and lounge around on the floor. Bring some booze and your sweetheart; we'll make sure we hang some mistletoe.
Ring the top doorbell. Lock your bikes on the porch. Smoking outside only. Parking on the street only. Come!
Jes Kramer, Sam Cook-Parrott of Radiator Hospital, and Ben Scott-Brandt of Ribbons perform each other's songs together. Simple arrangements with yummy harmonies make for a new minor-league pop super-group...
Imagine a gentle minimalist/folk songbird with a teasing hint of Regina Spektor in her lush warble. From Grand Rapids.
This fuzzed-out cutesy babydoll from Philadelphia will make you grin, and maybe stab you also.
Colin Post, Kolin Smith, and Sam Cook-Parrott perform rarely, and with great pleasure, in a difficult crunch-fest of blisteringly beautiful songs written by Colin Post, who currently resides in Missoula, Montana.
RIBBONS OF SONG
Local folk-pop melodies veer and soar over a flurry of textures and harmonies. Join us as we say adieu to our fondly beloved upright bassist, Sam Snedeker. Sam's been playing with Ribbons since late 2008, and helped bolster the band into continued existence. We'll probably play anything you think we ought to play before the night's over.
