What Cheer? Brigade

What Cheer? Brigade is a 19-piece brass band from Providence, RI that has brought their music to city streets, American Legions, tiny dance clubs, parking lots, and island ferries… just in the state of Maine! Mixing the sounds of Bollywood, the Balkans, New Orleans, samba and hip-hop with punk intensity and classical precision, they prove that great parties need no electricity. Since 2005, they’ve shared the stage and collaborated with a who’s who of the music world: Blondie, Dan Deacon, Man Man, Japanther, Dengue Fever, Okkervil River, Lightning Bolt, Wolf Parade, Matt and Kim, Slavic Soul Party, Sage Francis, and Chain and the Gang, to name a few. Requiring no amplification, their live shows defy boundaries—literally. One particular SPACE set ended in the streets…   

Portland’s own digital hardcore heroes Phallus Uber Alles and upstart punks Street Sity Surf kick off the evening.
