Manic Productions presents Retribution Gospel Choir, Apse, Arms & Legs @ Daniel Street – Jan. 27th

One more show to add to tonight’s live music mayhem…Manic Productions presents Retribution Gospel Choir, Apse and Arms & Legs at Milford’s Daniel Street. This show has already be heavily promoted, including a full article in the January 21st issue of the New Haven Advocate. Retribution Gospel Choir (Sub Pop) is a newish project by Alan Spearhawk, better known for his work with his wife Mimi in the slow-core outfit Low. Apparently RGC is anything but slow-core though and may surprise some Low fans for their rockiness and velocity. Their second album just came out on Sub Pop records yesterday with this show occurring towards the beginning of a 3 month tour in support of it. Opening for RGC will be CT by way of Cape Cod’s Apse, a band that itself is riding a significant amount of buzz lately. Having just come back from their latest European tour in a series of European tours, Apse can hold their own and will. Lately the band’s sole New Haven (or Connecticut connection for that matter) has been bassist John Mordecai who also plays in Shark and The Tyler Trudeau Attempt. Last but not least is CT.’s Arms & Legs. Featuring two-thirds of Welcome, Arms & Legs will be performing in full-band format for this show. They will also be following RGC down to NYC for a show at Mercury Lounge on Feb. 1st. Enough shows for everyone tonight now?
