Hey all, I think some of you know Rob, one of my Seattle buddies. He’s a big UM fan as well.
Currently his band, High Pulp, is on tour. Playing Boston tonight and NYC tomorrow:
They are a jazzy but their live stuff can get pretty out there. Their latest record:
If you have a night free when they hit up a venue near you, check it out!
I would have posted this earlier but it slipped my mind.
High Pulp and Squeaky Feet co-bill out here would be tight. I was bummed the last time they came through Portland was the night of Bonobo. Wasn’t going to skip Bonobo for them, but I’ve caught them before here.
you’re friends with this band? that’s incredible, i love this record. found it through robert beatty’s album art. very cool!!
This sounds great. They’ll be in DC this Sunday.
Rob’s the second from the right. I met Rob at a hotel in Portland before the 2015 show. Good dude as @sabretooth mentioned.
This album is very cool, thanks for sharing. Definitely heavy Snarky Puppy vibes to their sound. I dig it.
Edit: darn gonna miss them by 1 day in New Orleans later this month. Cool that they are touring with Mattson 2. Would like to check those guys out sometime.
Rob just texted me out of the blue. You have something to do with this Max? @sabretooth
Anyway, looking at their dates…
@WhoDatVols should go check them out 5.21 in Nashvegas!
I saw that, definitely will check em out if I don’t have anything else going on
I mentioned I was posting it here so maybe that’s why he thought of you?
You in for tonight with Sigur Ros?
Sadly I’m not. The “wife” wants to save money and wasn’t interested in going. I told her it’s a very unique experience (caught them three times) and it will be worth it but wasn’t going to press it too hard since saving money is smart right now with Alaska on the horizon.
Have a blast buddy!
Bummer, catch you somewhere else sometime soon.
The show is pricey, but this will basically be my first show in two years (besides that Threedom show) so that’s ok. Taking a couple of first timers tonight.
Fuck I totally blanked on that show…
I’ll be at Kurt Vile later this month.
Yesterday I saw floor seats for tonight on StubHub for $44+fees and I almost pulled the trigger. They are going for like half of face right now for 300s there. Man, why did I just check now I want to go solo haha.
This is cool. Very Tortoisey
Thought I remembered reading out these guys somewhere on the Bort before, turns out I was right and I even posted in this thread ha. This EP just came up on Spotify and it is really good. Will check these guys out more!
Just caught the Portland show last Sunday. Hung with Rob a bit earlier in the weekend and their label can’t wait to see what’s coming next. Me either!
