Saturday evening, following McGee of Umphreythe performance of in Indianapolis, bassist Ryan stasik continued the party at The Vogue Theater with his project inspired by the 80s, Cursed flamingo.
The late night performance capped a busy weekend for the Charleston, SC sextet, which had previously performed at Resonance music and art festival To The top of Marvin mountain in Masontown, WV Friday.
The group, composed of Stasik, singer Kanika moore, The sextet — which includes Umphrey’s McGee bass player Ryan stasik alongside the singer Kanika moore, guitarist Thomas kenney, saxophonist Mike Quinn, keyboardist Ross bogan, and drummer Stu White-worked from material from recent EP companions Loss and Flamingo. As the EP titles suggest, this is a band that sits between seemingly opposing styles. While the former presents a collection of darker synthetic waves inspired by themes of “mysterious and macabre” literature and cinema, the latter explores the nostalgic sounds of ’80s guilty pleasure with an emphasis on hedonistic pleasure. – the two characteristic sides of the Doom Flamingo coin.
