CROSS-POLLINATION CXCIII - TUES MAY 27TH - 7:30-10 PM
THE BROTHER KITE
FRIGHTENED RABBIT

The Brother Kite had their beginnings in the collaboration between musicians Patrick Boutwell and Jon Downs in 2001, but the group itself didn't come together until the following year with the addition of bassist Andrea Mason and guitarist Mark Howard. The group released a split 7" with Vaguely Starshaped in 2003 and followed it up with their first full-length, The Brother Kite, the following year. They recruited drummer Matt Rozzero soon after that, and the group started thinking about their second album. The Brother Kite emerged from their homemade studio two years later with Waiting for the Time to Be Right, an album that cobbled together the band's trademark shoegaziness with psychedelic power pop reminiscent of Smiley Smile-era Brian Wilson.

They are a band who live in Glasgow and have done for some time. They record in bedrooms, cupboards and kitchens. Anyone can be in Frightened Rabbit. They have played some live shows in this city, but want to meet people from other cities, in order that they can come and blow into tubes when they play live. Lets keep pop music alive by getting it out of that dress and into a sweater.
