This Friday, two like minded bands are taking over Brooklyn’s infamous House of Yes for a night of genre defying music. Consider the Source, a New York-based instrumental trio comprised of Gabriel Marin (guitar), John Ferrara (bass) and Jeff Mann (drums & percussion), has established itself as a pioneer of experimental jam music since its inception in 2004 by fusing together worldly sonic influences while introducing unique instruments like the double-necked guitar into its live experience. Ross Jenssen, a meteoric heavy future groove trio based out of Western Mass comprised of Jules Jenssen (drums), Brian Ross (bass) and Sam McGarrity (guitar), is slated to open for Consider the Source and hits promptly at 7:30pm. We’re catching Ross Jenssen at an ideal time this Friday, as the trio just released its sophomoric studio release, Stories EP, which features completely deviant experimental metal music that weaves together the instrumental prowess of each band member to tell tall tales in the absence of lyrics. Check out the EP below, and make sure to read our interview with Jules Jenssen, published last week, to help develop your understanding of Ross Jenssen.
You really couldn’t ask for a better venue to incubate this night of music, as The House of Yes has developed a reputation for its dazzling decor, psychedelic undertones, fire spinners, trapeze swingers, and complete sensory club experience. Located just a stone’s throw from the Jefferson L stop in an up-and-coming area of Bushwick cladded in radical street art, we’re truly in for the complete visionary experience on Friday. To make matters even better, we’re teaming up with Ross Jenssen and The House of Yes to give away a pair of tickets to Friday’s show.
