What? Spring already in March? I (Hannah) just returned from performing at SXSW in Austin, TX. The weather was actually warmer in NYC when I got back… strange times. What a fun festival. Hoping to bring Copal down next year! Winter–or spring as it were, is a great time for development–we are currently working on new music, a new stage show, new visuals, etc. Looking forward to some great shows this year, to be announced soon… WE HEART YOU!!
Won’t you be our gypsy valentine? Saturday, Feb. 11, Copal cruises to Lower East Side’s Mehanata Bulgarian Bar to offer a gritty grungy high-intensity gypsy crossover dance party–par for the course from those orchestral debutantes in pinstripes and combat boots.. Also, featuring the darling dangerous dancer RIO!
[note: this party is also a sendoff for our fiercely badass bass player Lorenzo Wolff who is heading to Boston to be part of a major 2.5-month musical operation with the Lisps.]

For the best Friday night on the town ever, get your American darkwave, ethereal ambient and neo-classical experience with Black Tape for a Blue Girl, progenitors of the ethereal “darkwave” sound in the 90′s, and staking out new territory with their 10th studio album “10 Neurotics” featuring Brian Viglione of The Dresden Dolls, with more of a rock/dark cabaret sound. Expect sassy breaks and class with Copal, an orchestral world-steampunk band described as “artistically beautiful yet darkly tantalizing” (Maximum Ink). Jaggery, a Boston-based art-rock collective weaves harp, viola, piano, contrabass, and drum kit into a universe of its own, lead by Mali Sastri with one of the most beautiful voices in modern music. Closing the night is Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, Boston’s 2010 Live Artist of the Year nominee, and Deli Magazine’s pick as Best Indie band of 2010, this band is “wildly unusual and diverse in material and presentation” (Boston Survival Guide).
