One of our all-time favorite bands What Cheer? Brigade returns for another summer dance party! The Providence-based 19-piece radical brass band has brought their music to city streets, American Legions, tiny dance clubs, parking lots, alleyways, and island ferries… and that’s 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. Their SPACE sets have ended in the streets… 

🕯️ This weekend only! The dance show of the summer is Scapegoat Garden’s Liturgy|Order|Bridge. The Hartford-based company calls upon Black church traditions and ideas of faith, nature, fashion, and experimentation in their limited performance run June 20-22. Tickets available now, presented by SPACE at Mechanics’ Hall. 🕯️
