Philly funktronica band Tweed throws dance party at River Street Jazz Cafe in Plains on Nov. 17
From a press release:
Those who can’t wait for Camp Bisco to return to the area can dance to Philadelphia funktronica powerhouse Tweed and Wilkes-Barre DJ Newpy Hundo at the River Street Jazz Cafe in Plains on Friday, Nov. 17.
Doors at the Jazz Cafe (667 N. River St., Plains) open at 8 p.m., and the 21+ show starts at 9:30 p.m. with Newpy Hundo. Tweed will play two sets starting at 10:30 p.m. Tickets, which are $8 in advance or $12 at the door, can be purchased online via HoldMyTicket.
Tweed is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of funk, rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of high-energy performance, composition, and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.
The jamchronica band was formed in 2010 in the basement parties and college underground at the University of Delaware. In 2013, Joe Vela (drums, samples), Jon Tomczak (synthesizers, keys, vocals), and AJ DiBiase (guitar, vocals) added Dan McDonald on bass and vocals and, soon after, took the national stage of clubs, venues, and festivals across the country. With relentless style and a uniquely cohesive sound, they have proven that they can bring the party anywhere they go.
