Artist of the day: Jarvik 7
Jarvik 7's MySpace page says the band is "still kicking. Somehow."
Well put. The band's driving forces, longtime friends Mat Bowman (vocals and guitars) and Bill Myers (bass), have been making hazy, glazey, shoegazy indie rock together since 1995, through various lineup changes and breaks. Their lineup now also includes Dennis Wenrich on guitar and Brian Conger on drums.
On Saturday, they're headlining the annual New Granada Christmas show at New World Brewery, alongside Red Room Cinema and the Dark Esquire. Tickets are $7, and the show begins at 9 p.m. Click here.
