Ferndale Library Featuring Concert by Matt Gabriel Dec. 7


Ferndale Library Featuring Concert by Matt Gabriel Dec. 7

FERNDALE, MI– The Ferndale Library becomes a live music venue once again on Friday, Dec 7, at 8pm, when local indie rockers Electric Honey plug in and get loud for an afterhours concert. First Stop Friday effectively threads the library into the city’s local club scene for one night. It’s often the “first stop” for music lovers who typically have plans of convening at other venues later into the evening. Or, for music lovers who want to skip the bar scene and still be home at an early hour, this is an ideal concert experience. This free, all ages event is made possible by the Friends of the Ferndale Library.

Electric Honey are a quintet of longtime friends blending intricate art-pop, post-prog, new-wave and space-rock with baroque elements like violin, trumpet, ukulele and a mandolin. Their power chords riff with urgent punk aggression into a sweet, sinewy glide of a bow sawing over strings. (That’s right, it’s an electric-violin!). The vocals are emotive and contemplative, something like Elvis Costello-meets-Dave Grohl, while they bring together the angular riffs of something like the Pixies into something headier and spacier, like Radiohead.  In fact, Electric Honey‘s knack, overall, is going beyond just rock and pop and creating a layered and atmosphere sound. It’s atmospheric power-pop!

Fronted by Patrick Minjeur, whose unhinged musical style complements the intricate detail driven work done by guitarist Evan Gatny, Electric Honey makes for a perfectly balanced Jekyll and Hyde scenario. They have just released their second full length album Primetime Garbage digitally and on vinyl pressed at Third Man in Detroit. EH also features Chris Righi on violin, Matt Doppel on drums/trumpet, and John Labut on bass/ukulele.

The library closes at 6pm on Dec 7, but doors reopen at 7:45pm, with music starting promptly at 8pm. First Stop Fridays are sponsored by The Friends of the Ferndale Library.
