PREVIEW: Bad History Month / Soft Fangs / Johanna Baumann

On April 10, 7-10:30 PM, Electric Eye Cafe presents a concert featuring Bad History Month, Soft Fangs, and Johanna Baumann. Suggested donation is $5.

Bad History Month, from Boston, MA, is the solo project of Sean Bean, and has been described as “a glum, anti-folk act.” NPR writes about the the band’s music as being a “combination of ribald jokes, effervescent self-deprecation and blunt existentialism focused on understanding oneself from the inside out in service of isolation — assuming the position of the middle school loner in the back of a classroom.”

Soft Fangs’s music is, well, soft. With gentle melodies and harmonies, accompanied by John Lutkevich’s mellow vocals, Soft Fang’s music is a mix of the dreampop, shoegaze, and indie genres. Check it out here.

Johanna Baumann is an artist based in Ann Arbor. I listened to her album, Peach, the other day, and really enjoyed it! My favorite tracks include “Peach” and “Boy Who Loved Anne.” Here is her bandcamp page.

Electric Eye Cafe is a recently opened coffee shop, who describes themselves as “the Dream-Come-To-Life for Our Team. Envisioning a calm and measured space & atmosphere from which to enjoy the art of coffee.” I have not had the chance to visit yet, but after scrolling through the pictures and reviews on their Facebook page, I cannot wait to pay a long-overdue visit! The cafe has been hailed as providing a great space for creative work, fantastic service, and delicious coffee and baked goods (also free wifi!) Here is a link to their website and Facebook page.
