He’s My Brother She’s My Sisterplan great Escape–
Band to Headline May Residency at The Satellite club in Silverlake, California
On five consecutive Monday nights in May, acclaimed band will invite audiences to
Escape into evenings of decadent indulgence, high stakes seduction and music to stir the soul
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, the psych-idyllic folk-rock ensemble with a touch of vaudeville glamour, will be curating and headlining five consecutive Monday night events at The Satellite(formerly Spaceland) in Silverlake, California, beginning May 2, 2011. This will be the acclaimed band’s first residency. They have invited a dizzying mix of friends and special guest performers to join them on the high wire for five separate evenings inspired by escape, enchantment and illusion in support of their new single Escape Tonight.
The band will be releasing a new recording and video in conjunction with each show of the residency, and they will play a different set every night–debuting new material from their upcoming album along with fan favorites from their recent self-titled EP, and songs inspired by each week’s theme. The new music and videos will be released as a weekly free download on the band’s website,www.HMBSMS.com. Fans who come to the residency shows will be able to take home a souvenir art-adorned flash drive card, including that week’s new music, video and photos.
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister are led by a brother and sister duo, the dueling lead singers and songwriters Rob Kolar and Rachel Kolar, tap-dancer Lauren Brown and cellist Satya Bhabha.Lauren has created a new form of continuous rhythm with her feet acting as a hi-hat and snare drum to propel the band’s sound. Satya plays the cello by both bowing and plucking it in a uniquely unconventional manner. The shows are sure to feature much of the L.A. band’s mixture of colorful costumes, alleyway rhythms, and high energy. Their work has been well received and reviewed by Variety, LA Weekly, Deli Magazine, LA Record and other respectable publications. The band will be joined on these special evenings by an extended family of musical accompanists including the brilliant lap-slide player Aaron Robinson (Sea Wolf, The Hi-Ho’s), Oliver Newell on upright bass (Amanda Jo Williams, Henry Wolfe), and Patrick Joseph on a non-traditional standing drum set up.
