SEASAW // GULLY BOYS
Doors 8pm ~ MUSIC 8:30PM
Meg Golz and Eve Wilczewski started as co-workers, slowly courted each other into best friendship, and then magically into music-making conspirators - all along, guiding the ship that is their indie-pop duo Seasaw. Without every piece of this musical history together, it would have been impossible for them to create their latest release, Big Dogs.
Harnessing their team dynamic, the creation of this album demanded Seasaw be brutally honest and experimental with each other. This process allowed them to create Big Dogs, a wildly imaginative departure from their previous work that features lush soundscapes and powerful lyrical choices.
The album’s title Big Dogs is taken from the ridiculous and self-assigned name that some people in power give themselves, and the duo’s message is a sonically beautiful rejection of this outdated term, as well as a response the the world around them.
“...grunge, a little bit of emo, and some of the guileless instrumental rush of early punk”
- City Pages
They’re not dads from Vermont. Gully Boys are, in fact, Minnesota-based rockers Kathy, Nadirah, and Natalie. Their chemistry and confidence on stage make it hard to believe that two years ago, none of them knew how to play their instruments. Through tenacity and talent, they were named Minnesota’s Best New Music Act by City Pages in 2018and are in the midst of planning their second national tour. The band counts 90’s grunge heroes Courtney Love and No Doubt as inspiration, but their tight pop hooks and big choruses are anything but nostalgic. Gully Boys released their first LP, Not So Brave, in late 2018 to a flurry of media attention. Their song “Dizzy Romantics” is on regular rotation on NPR’s “The Current” and has attracted social media shoutouts from national acts like Hippo Campus and Har Mar Superstar.
LUREE is the new solo project of Hannah from Oh My Love.
