Red Baraat merges the hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of funk, go-go, rock, and jazz – fueled by master rhythm makers, the muscle of horns, raucous guitar, and a booming sousaphone. On the heels of a new album release, Sound The People, Red Baraat are very much taking their sonic signature to a new astral realm, while firmly placing it within the context of a globalized generation. All Songs Considered called their latest release “wildly infectious, soul-grooving music.” and Stereogum premiered the title track featuring Heems (Das Racist / Swet Shop Boys), “Red Baraat delivers an explosion of sound. A frenzy of funk, jazz, hip-hop, and Indian bhangra.”
On Monday Aug 13, 2pm, Plan 9 welcomes Trippers & Askers to the Carytown stage!
Trippers & Askers - the band of Durham, NC based Jay Hammond - are playing a day time in-store at Plan 9 to round out their summer tour, and in celebration of their recent release, Night Cap. Come on out!
Trippers & Askers is project that has waxed and waned in the midst of Hammond’s supporting roles in the studio and on the road with artists such as Psychic Temple (Asthmatic Kitty, Joyful Noise); Eamon Fogarty (Joyful Noise), and No Lands (New Amsterdam Records). "Regal, Grand Ol' Opry style country wrung through the mind of a multi-instrumentalist responsible for sonically shaping some of the most progressive experimental pop music of the last few years. "
