Experience Something Unique on Saturday NightFebruary 1st, 2012
The three musicians in La Big Vic have diverse backgrounds. Violinist-lead singer Emilie Friedlander was—and actually still is—a blogger, before moving here from Japan guitarist Toshio Maduda was in a J-pop boy band and he produced hip-hop and commercials and keyboardist Peter Pearson apprenticed as a sound producer. But when the trio makes music what comes out is an amazing stew of beats, hooks, trip-hop and ambiance. This isn’t a case of being different just to be different. No, it’s a unique kind of music, which you can see for yourself when, alongside Alex Bleeker and the Freaks and Family Portrait, La Big Vic (above, doing “Musica” for newtownradio.com) plays Mercury Lounge on Saturday night.
