CROSS-POLLINATION CXCVII - TUES JUN 24TH - 7:30-10 PM
MEASURE
FREER

In their own words: So, Measure is me, Laura DiStasi, and him, David Little. We both live in Brooklyn, NY, and in the couple years we have known each other, we've discovered the one of our very favorite things in the world is to make music together. We aren't currently signed to a label, but we are in the process of self-releasing our first EP .

Our EP is called "Begin Again" and we are really excited about it. It is available on SNOCAP now, and will soon be available through other online retailers such as iTunes, Emusic, etc etc. There will be physical copies in the next month or so. Soon, we also plan to have t-shirts and some other merch with Ellie Herring's incredible artwork all over it.

FREER is a Detroit-based rock quartet who have left the garage to craft their sound in the dark shadows of Motown. Existing somewhere in between The MC5 and Smokey Robinson, all filtered through a classical background, this talented foursome is creating music that is as soulful as it is punk, and as original as it is addictive.

FREER was formed by brothers Jeremy and Jeffery Freer in the fall of 2005. Having spent nearly a decade in other bands, and working on various solo projects, Jeremy felt that it was time to put together the most innovative group of musicians he could find, who had no limits when it came to genre.

During the summer of 2006, the band wrote and recorded their debut album, entitled SECRET CHORUS. Jeremy recalls, "2006 was a very strange year not only in my personal life but in the world in general. Around the globe there was a lot going on and much of it wasn't very encouraging; the war, natural disasters�In the middle of all of that I was feeling very insignificant in the whole scheme of things, but also very consumed with my everyday struggles. To me the record is very much about those two forces competing with each other."

"Secret Chorus will make you want to kick a bully's ass, get your dance on, and make out with someone in a closet all at the same time."
