To the opera! One of the shows I was anticipating most was seeing Zack Mexico frontman John Saturley's solo set at Fletcher Opera Theater.
I had no idea what to expect, which frankly, excites me... especially knowing that someone with talent is about to stretch their boundaries. Given the wild psych-indie of his band, you'd think an opera theater an odd setting for John. Not necessarily. His solo material ranges from downbeat versions of Zack Mex-type stuff to long-form spacey aberrations (and this space is a great one for experimental). John didn't let down. Show Pics and Review
Hey Hey everybody! The time to travel is upon us. We are headed to the deep-deep south for a tour in Mexico City with our friends Chelydra. We will be gone from August 10th til the 22nd to play multiple shows including Mexican Summer Festival 2016. So, check out our buddies Chelydra. Cheers!
How Strange It Is To Be Anything At All I often say Zack Mexico is the best band in NC. It's just my opinion, but I talked up this show to a few festival-goers asking for my opinion on what to see. I also often point out that this is one of the few bands I can watch stretch out a song for 8, 10, or more minutes and not get at all bored (I hate jam bands). They can, and often do, play a 5-song set without leaving you feeling short-changed in the least. This time, they played four... maybe five if you count the little warm-up instrumental at the beginning. But what I heard from people milling around in shock afterwards, it only took four songs to make a lot of new fans. "Amazing!" "Incredible!" "You were NOT wrong!"
