Music Tonight: PHOX

A lot of the great up-and-coming touring artists that made September’s MidPoint Music Festival one of the best yet have been building on their MPMF momentum and returning to the area. Even some of the bands that canceled their MPMF appearances have made their way back.  Korea’s Love X Stereo had travel issues and missed this year’s MidPoint, but recently played MOTR Pub (the club owned by MPMF artistic director Dan McCabe) and now the amazing seven-piece Wisconsin crew PHOX (who missed MPMF to tour with Blitzen Trapper) is headed to the same venue tonight for a great double-bill with San Francisco Psych Rock/Shoegaze outfit (and MPMF alumnus) Sleepy Sun. The wonderfully eclectic PHOX, which recently announced a new recording was in the works, appear to be on the verge of very big things; seems like everyone who hears the band’s gorgeous and unique mesh of Folk, Indie Rock, Soul, Americana, Jazz, Chamber Pop and other styles instantly falls in love with them. In September, the group issued a live EP taken from its appearance at the ITunes Festival in London. It was the follow-up to its Confetti EP, released earlier this year with an endearing companion “music video EP” featuring clips for each track on the release. Check it out below: Tonight’s show at MOTR (the venue’s website is calling it “a once-in-a-lifetime MUST SEE Mind Melting Monday Mash-Up”) starts at 9:30 p.m. and, like all MOTR shows, is free.
