GIVERS – 5.09.10 – The Monkey House

Straight outta Louisiana.


These guys + gals are on the up and up. Sure to be a fun Sunday night in May kicking it at the Monkey. Rolled about in 2009 with some support slots for The Dirty Projectors fall tour as well as Casper & the Cookies, Everthus the Deadbeats and My Name is John Michael..

GIVERS consists of several musicians from various improvisational
groups all centered in southwestern Louisiana who have combined to form one cohesive music making body, creating what they refer to as afro-beat, dancy pants, indie pop love music.

GIVERS specialize in sounds that gather together melodically and
electronically bent forms of african, folk, and pop music, but send them underwater, where they are refracted with light and space, changing the overall shape and texture into something refreshingly new, yet at the same time, familiar. All natives of southern Louisiana,the members were brought up in a music scene steeped rich in culture, wether it be the cajun or zydeco roots of their hometown, Lafayette, or the funky, dance inducing second line from neighboring New Orleans. Despite the abundance of traditional music surrounding the band, GIVERS have managed to harness a sound of their own, breaking free of tradition, all the while maintaining an honesty in their music which keeps listeners on edge.
