Arc Iris / Qiet @ BOP STOP
When: Oct 27, 2018, 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Where: BOP STOP
Come join us for two unique and high-energy bands, Arc Iris and Qiet. This show is a collaboration between BOP STOP and Mechanic Street House Concerts, where both bands have wowed audiences.
Arc Iris is a feast for the eyes and the ears. They are decidedly their own thing - weaving the threads of smart folk-rock like Joni Mitchell, theatrical prog like early Genesis, and modern rock into their own colorful capes. Strong musicianship, smart songs, and great live shows – no wonder they’ve performed at festivals like Bonaroo and Newport Folk Festival and been featured on All Things Considered.
"Though they are only a three-piece they have a large arsenal of sounds and sensibilities to work with, and they use every bit of it to make beautifully textured soundscapes difficult to box into any genre. " –Stereogum
Qiet play horn and fiddle spiked pop-rock that blends in bits from gypsy jazz, funk, soul, and folk music. Notorious for moving even the most stoic to dance, Qiet’s chemistry resonates with the audience to create an experience for you to remember.
“Kiss of the Universe is Qiet’s most fully realized album yet, with horns, violins and Vincent’s larger-than-life vocals punctuating songs filled with dark humor, surreal wordplay and the existential poetry of a life lived on the edge. It’s the kind of stuff that could become pretentious in the wrong hands, but Qiet keeps everything grounded with danceable rhythms, inventive arrangements, and tons of hooks.” – Spotlight West Virginia on their latest album
Note: Since it is the Saturday before Halloween, Jocie from Arc Iris wants you to know that you are 100% welcome to come in a costume.
