CROSS-POLLINATION CCXXXIV - TUES APR 21ST - 7:30-10 PM
POINGLY
AFUCHE

Poingly is not a Nintendo game but he would like to be.

Afuche’s revolving cast also currently includes of Mike Brown (upright Bass), Josh Lawrence (Trumpet), Ryan Perrey (Electric Bass), and Charlie Amador (Drums and additional percussion). With an uninhibited energy, Acosta skillfully switches between the Wurlitzer, Clarinet, Drums, and a Maraca while Ryalls exchanges a Tres guitar for a Clarinet, electric Guitar or a wood block. As a whole, the group creates a ramshackle sound that can be as musically fearless as Tom Waits. Tense and subdued as film music and melodic yet dissonant, Afuche displays a passionate energy for creating unique music and putting on a good show.

Carajo Is Worse Than Hell is a self-produced and self-released reaction to the limitations of previous projects. It begins with a klezmer stomp that shifts into an Afro-Beat groove, clashing culture with clamor and keeping the listener alert. “Umm Champ Chemp” is an aptly titled song that jangles in an obscure setting and is written to confuse as well as to entertain. “Gaspar Noe” is a testament to the band’s exuberant creative energy as well as its sense of pop melody. As a whole, this EP is thoughtfully arranged and surpasses all expectations.
