TVD Recommends: Gravity A, Sonic Bloom free at Tipitina’s, 8/21

There are only three weeks left of Tipitina’s Foundation Free Fridays series at the uptown club. Friday night is a killer double bill.

Electro-funkateers Gravity A headline and they are presenting a special show. For only the second time (the first was a Lundi Gras show earlier this year), they will be performing Pink Floyd’s classic 1977 album, Animals in its entirety.

Guitarist and vocalist Cliff Hines will be joining the band for this performance. Here’s what he said about the show.“We will be as faithful as possible to the original recording, using lots of synths, vocoders, talk boxes, etc. to emulate all of the rich soundscapes.” With two guitarists, they will also be able to, “handle the album’s famous harmony guitar solos.”

Trumpeter Eric “Benny” Bloom and his group, Sonic Bloom open the show. Bloom has been making quite a name for himself since becoming part of the burgeoning scene in New Orleans. I saw this band recently at the Maple Leaf and was blown away by the interplay between the musicians.

Sonic Bloom features Eric Vogel on bass, Andrew Block on guitar,  Alfred Jordan on drums and Nigel Hall on keys.
