New Show Alert! 05/21/10: The Pubes/The Riveras/Tremulants/Deer-Wolf-Bear

May 9th, 2010 · No Comments · Events

The Riveras create an ecletcic, tense, darker sound by blending the traditional guitar/bass/drums rock format of alternative, post-punk and jazz influences such as Karate, Smart Went Crazy, Drive Like Jehu, with the heartbreaking vocals and stirring violin of vocalist Jody Lew, who draws her influences from Bjork, and Radiohead, to The Clash, Blonde Redhead and Mecca Normal. The Riveras formed in the fall of 2009 in Southern Arizona, and is comprised of Douglas Berry and Chad Kaffer of Arizona jazz-rock band Thankful Birds on drums and guitars, respectively, and Chris Ilg on string bass with violinst and lead songstress Jody Lew.
