CROSS-POLLINATION CLXXVII - TUES FEB 5TH - 7:30-10 PM
SEA SICK
THE DIG

Seasick is the brain-child of Persian/Latvian Jasmine Golestaneh. Tired of singing songs to herself in dirty bedrooms, one day Jasmine took a train to the seaside and asked the ocean for guidance. As she stared into the placid dark waters, a voice loomed over her head. That was the voice of Geoffrey Lee, "yeah!", he said with a certain kind of zeal, and a golden keyboard rose from the sea foam. Jasmine was delighted, and the pair frolicked with sounds in her messy bedroom from dusk till dawn, and dusk again. Then one day they heard a nasty rattle from the bathroom sink. It was unremitting! The banging was clanging until they could no longer hear themselves drink. Finally Jasmine stuck her head down the drain pipe, only to find Sam Levin flogging a drum so hard that the whole building broke out in a flood. It was then a trinity formed, and in those treacherous, sewage infested waters, Seasick was born.

"When I first saw psychedelic punk-rock band Seasick play at Sin-é, I was hypnotized... It was such an explosive and intense experience that the few times I managed to break the spell, I noticed everyone else in the audience...was equally haunted." - Chiara Barzini (THE VILLAGE VOICE)

"Seasick is a lot like that one opium-induced dream you had: hypnotic, sexy, and surreal." -CHIEF MAGAZINE

"Seasick...fronted by Persian/Latvian Jasmine Golestaneh - manages quite incredibly to strike that magic balance between dark intensity, creativity, sensuality and powerful songwriting that made Jim Morrison and co.'s music so strangely addictive..." THE DELI MAGAZINE SEASICK: CD OF THE MONTH

"...I was really impressed by Seasick. Leader Jasmine Golestaneh is any rockers dream: She plays a mean dark guitar, carries a tune, dares to scream, knows how to move on stage and has the right attitude...Think of Suzie Quattro crossed with The Falls M. E. Smith, throw in a bit of Sonic Youth and you will feel seasick." -THE ROMAN GAMES DIARY BLOG

With one hand deep in roots rock and roll and live performances that lift you up and leave you ragged, The Dig are building a reputation as one of the best young bands in New York. The songs on their new EP, Good Luck and Games, produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, The Ramones) have energy and intelligence matched only by their heartfelt swagger. See them now so you can say that you saw them then
