Next Friday, April 6th is the first Friday of the month, which means once again, there are a bunch of venues opening their doors for free concerts. The Pioneer in Fountain Square will be one of these next week. Their free First Friday show for the month will feature the bands In Tall Buildings, and Saint Aubin.
In Tall Buildings
In Tall Buildings is a Chicago-based pop project of solo artist and multi-instrumentalist Erik Hall, currently signed on Western Vinyl. Hall released the debut self-titled EP for his In Tall Buildings project back in 2010. After another five years, he came out with “Driver” in 2015. Hall’s most recent album “Akinetic” dropped earlier this month. You can listen to all of In Tall Buildings on Bandcamp.
Hall’s profile on Western Vinyl addresses the change Hall brought to his sound for his latest album.”With the addition of producer and engineer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine) Hall crashes through the aforementioned subject matter with brightness and lucidity, yielding his most intelligent and focused songwriting yet”.
Saint Aubin is an eclectic mix of alt-rock and soulful, jazzy folk. The band is based out of Indianapolis and was founded in 2013. The band’s debut album was a live acoustic recording at WGRE in Greencastle, IN in 2013. Saint Aubin’s first EP “Moonlight Monster” came out in 2015. Their second, and most recent release “They Say You Are A Giant”, was released in 2016.
The members of Saint Aubin are Fredrick Miller, Trevor St. Aubin, and Scott Moran. They like to all hop around and play different instruments during shows, and switch between vocals, guitar, bass, synth, and drums.
The free First Friday show with In Tall Buildings and Saint Aubin starts at 10:30 at The Pioneer. While the show is free, it’s still at a bar, so you must be 21 or older to attend.
