Mr. Smalls Theatre will be hosting the Unlucky Revival Showcase on Friday the 13th of March, 2015 featuring Beauty Slap, Nameless in August, Round Black Ghosts, Big Gypsy, & Eastend Mile. The Unlucky Revival features some of the most unique up-and-coming folk/rock/jazz/funk/electronic music Pittsburgh has to offer. Beauty Slap: Beauty Slap is an electronic-acoustic ensemble comprised of two trumpets, two trombones, an electric guitar, a keyboard player, and an evil genius who is constantly using his computer [along with a table full of interactive technology] to modify and contribute to the sounds made by the instrumentalists in real time. The group combines classic funk lines with the danceable electronic grooves that have become popularized in recent years--a product that is only possible given the combination of technological expertise and conservatory musical training that the group brings to the table. Nameless in August: Nameless in August is a high-energy folk rock quintet featuring everything from banjo to bass, to bootstomps and booze. NiA performs hours of original music interwoven with spins on familiar covers. Thoughtful melodies and lyrics leave you connected while fun, up-beat organic grooves keep the crowd movin'. Formed 3 years ago, NiA is a native to the old steeltown of Pittsburgh, PA. The group feels at home playing everywhere from festivals to local venues around the US. With the release of their debut studio album “Wheelhouse” in 2014, NiA is preparing to hit the road and spread their soundwaves to a venue near you. For more info, videos, and free streaming of the full album, check out: Round Black Ghosts: Round Black Ghosts is a quoted reference to pre-Depression era records known as 78's. These sonic time capsules symbolize a time when recorded music was pure; without artificial manipulation. The musicians' unique qualities are what made the music stand out. This idea is what this Pittsburgh-based band strives to achieve in the studio as well as in live performance. RBG, a Blues/Americana/Pop/Rock band, try to write and deliver songs that will get stuck in your craw, hopefully for their purity and uniqueness. Big Gypsy: Big Gypsy is a powerful four piece focused on creating feverish tunes that produce the ultimate rock n' roll experience. With D.o.B. on drums, Nick Bianco on bass and Grandalise on lead guitar, Big Gypsy sets a scene that is heavily rooted in blues and funk. Lean in a little closer to feel the lyrics of leading lady, Barretta, who will surely leave you hanging on her every word. Without a doubt, Big Gypsy will enliven your senses to leave you wanting more. Eastend Mile: Eastend Mile, a jazz rooted quartet from Pittsburgh, is a group devoted to reflecting the very definition of Jazz music; innovation and self-expression. Eastend Mile fuses Jazz with Hip-Hop, Indie Rock, and R&B, taking improvisation to its epitome.
