Who? Jay Manuel (guitar, voice, programming) and (not shown) Stephen Zsirai (bass), Kevin Brow (drums) and Mike Bracken (harp).
WHERE? Friday (April 20) at the NOW Lounge.
SOUND? During this two-part gig, Manuel and crew will morph from a lo-fi alternative soul group into a beat-driven house outfit playing along to experimental films.
key fast facts? From pop group to musical theatre project, electronica outfit, alt-rock combo and now power pop trio with a cinematic edge, Surface to Sound is whatever Manuel's fancy is at a given time. Five albums released since 96, and no two alike. Manuel, not surprisingly, works by day in film and audio.
WHY? Sounds like a groovy way to spend an evening -- Motown-meets-grunge, with visuals.
IF YOURE INTO: Everything and the kitchen sink or, as Manuel calls it, ambient, soulful house music with a 60s edge.
