Three bands perform March 20 at the Cavalcade in Fruita

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Portland-based bands Brainstorm and Radiation City will stop in Fruita for a show after spending the past week performing in Austin at the notable South by Southwest Music Festival & Conference.Also joining the March 20 show at the Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen St., is the San Francisco band Social Studies.Brainstorm lead singer and drummer Adam Baz spoke with the Free Press briefly about his band, whose sound he describes as "experimental pop." The group is also influenced by low-fi pop, psychedelic music and African guitar, he said. Brainstorm's Patrick Phillips also sings lead and plays guitar. The band recently added bass player and back-up singer Dasha Shleyeva. "When we perform live, it's an energetic performance, with rock and roll as well," Baz said. National Public Radio featured the band's songs on three separate occasions on its All Songs Considered program. Most recently, Brainstorm's new single "She Moves" released by Tender Loving Empire, premiered on NPR.Publicist Caroline Borolla describes the song as a "scuzzy, dreamlike pop song about becoming entranced by a woman whose appeal is limitless, but whose attention lies elsewhere. First seen amidst a landscape of fog and flowers, she's like some alluring figure from Dante's underworld; a player of tricks and a thief of hearts."Brainstorm released its album "Heat Waves" in October.The band will perform songs from the album, as well as four new songs written since then, Baz said.
