TVD Recommends: Incredible Change at Fort Reno, 7/23


No plans tonight? Synthpop stars Incredible Change will be headlining everyone’s favorite local outdoor music series Fort Reno. Their self-titled debut album was released last month and is available for free on SpotifyBandcamp, and Soundcloud.

Ra Ra Rasputin lead singer Brock Boss has worked on Incredible Change as a side project for a few years now, with a goal “to incorporate more analog synths and focus on vocals.” Most of the songs on Incredible Change were written over the past two years, with Boss writing and recording songs and then scrapping them en masse, until the album was just right.

He is happy with the strength of the songs after having them in his head for the past two–and one song for four–years. Boss remembers, “Riding on the metro an hour to work and back, listening to parts of songs, imagining what fits, sitting at a desk in my apartment, recording vocals, drinking too much, rambling off whatever came to my mind. Listening back to them the next day, perceiving words I may have never said, but understood, and recognizing a tone or mood in the songs.”

The revolving cast of the band includes a slew of current and former DC musicians, but the live band and current members include: frontman Brock Boss, guitarist Greg Balleza (Vita Ruins), bassist Ed Porter, drummer Rob Hart (formerly of Miyazaki), and vocalist Sarah Stevenson.

They also credit the work of alumni: vocalist DeenaOh, saxophonist Stef Winzeler, Eddie Rodela of Miyazaki on vocals and bass, Nick Valcourt (drums) and Patrick Kigongo (guitar, bass) of the now-defunct The State Department, guitarist Brandon Moses of Paperhaus and Laughing Man, Grammy-award winning engineer and videographer Drew Doucette, and Deanna Toma on video production for their “Branching Out” video.


Incredible Change is joined tonight by Rancho Notorious and Magnetar Flares. The show starts promptly at 7PM and goes until 9:30PM. “Adults, Kids, dogs and picnic food are welcome. Glass bottles, alcohol and drugs are not.”
