It's about damn time Sage and Pumastrut get to share a stage! Those of us who have traveled far and wide to see festival favorite Sage and college-uniting Pumastrut will finally have their chance to catch these two bands on the same bill. Next Tuesday, June 24th will be the first time these two power acts will play back to back for their heavily overlapped crowds at the Whiskey Bar in Hoboken, NJ.
Since the release of its new two-disc CD, Sage has been on a non-stop ride, covering the area with a string of shows without any sign of quitting. It's no wonder they put on a better Cinco de Mayo show than all the Mexican restaurants in the area combined! With clever lyrics - featuring inspirational messages and even a nod to a local joint they've been known to frequent - amazing rhythms and tantalizing melodies, the band has captivated local audiences and guaranteed a good time to all every time. It's great to see that they're getting together with another local powerhouse with similar potential…
Pumastrut has been hitting everything from college talent shows to local bars to outdoor picnics, playing songs with a soulful, jammy sound that is light enough to dance to and meaningful enough to relate to, complimenting the likes of Sage with ease. It'll be interesting to see what happens when we get them under the same roof, what with all the instruments Pumastrut travels with and the impressive abilities of the players from both outfits. Both bands have tremendous musical ability - mostly self-taught musicians make up these groups - and their original songs not only compliment each other's styles, but it wouldn't surprise their audience a bit if they were to jump on stage together for an impromptu jam.
The price is right for this show too, and if you're worried about the drive, I'm told there's a train station not far from the club.
I know the bands will be full of surprises and ready to spring into action for what is looking to be one hell of an evening, so I can assure all of you out there that this is one not to miss.
Follow the Pumastrut van and the Sage caravan to the Whiskey Bar next Tuesday, June 24th for a night to remember!
