THE MELTING POT - Pledge Drive Special
Tuesday 10/18/2011 from 8-10pm
On this weeks edition of THE MELTING POT We will be focusing on the music of BEATS ANTIQUE featuring Interviews & Music blended and remixed live in the studio for 2 hours. Focusing on the new release ELEKTRAFONE, as well as rarities, remixes, classics and covers... Refreaked!! Like youve never heard them before.
Since the group’s inception from the eclectic underground of San Francisco’s performance art scene, Beats Antique has been notorious for making it nearly impossible to sit still. They meld their mediums as attentively as they fuse the cultures that inspire their sound. All self produced and composed, the trio creates a unique collage: an animalistic, raw musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic, while still maintaining an allegiance to the muses of class and beauty.
Well be offering tickets to Vagabond Operas Transylvanian Voodoo Ball Oct 29th, Ott w/ Pututure Primitive Nov21, & Blackaliscious w/ Lyrics Born & Freestyle Fellowship Oct 21st , Blockhead w/ Dj Cam Nov1. As Thank You Gifts for your Pledge...

David Satori and Tommy Cappel both trained classically before venturing to locations such as Bali, West Africa, Serbia and beyond. With extensive backgrounds in multicultural music production, and the passports to prove it, Satori and Cappel command the spectrum of live and digital instrumentation, born from Hip Hop and old school jazz.
Zoe Jakes adds a third dimension as the multi –cultural and –disciplinary dance counterpart to Beats Antique’s sound. Jakes has worked with 2 major dance troupes, Miles Copeland’s Bellydance Superstars and Rachel Brice’s Indigo Belly Dance Company, a student of ballet and contemporary techniques. Jake’s additional history with Cappel in the Extra Action Marching Band and the Yard Dogs Road Show grants some insight into the caliber of performance that is Beats Antique’s standard.
Beats Antique is best imagined as an innovative creature built from the cumulative heritage of the world’s music chasing its tail. However vivid that image, when a marching band groove crashes into bluesy folk chords only to be accompanied by electronic beats and Middle Eastern melodies, you’ll still be surprised.
