Cherub, Hippie Sabotage, Shooka -- SOLD OUT!

November 8, 2015 - 9:00pm

This show has SOLD OUT!  Thank you Eugene.!

On Sunday, November 8, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Cherub back to the WOW Hall along with special guests Hippie Sabotage and Shooka.

Electro-pop duo Cherub, (consisting of Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber) are thrilled to announce that they are hitting the road this fall with a brand new live show.  The tour - appropriately dubbed "So... You DTF? Tour" kicked off with a massive hometown show at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in September and comes to Eugene with friends Hippie Sabotage and Shooka.

Fans will be able to catch Cherub's electric new live set up that sees the guys performing with two additional musicians on stage; Cherub's producer Nick Curtis on drums and longtime friend Jordan Bartlett on guitar and keys.  Jordan and Jason could not be more excited about hitting the road this fall as a four-piece band.

"This fresh reinterpretation of the Cherub live show has been years in the making...  It's been amazing touring as a duo the past five years, and I'm sure we will again in the future," says Jason Huber.  "Now it's time for Jordan and me to start a new exciting chapter of our musical adventure, with some of our best friends!  Expect new songs, expect old songs -- expect a Cherub show like you've never seen before!"

Cherub’s material brings a funky vintage vibe to a new-school electronic sound, with soulful stacks of falsetto harmonies, and a layered cake of talkbox and vocoders, reminiscent of Prince, or Zapp and Roger.  Cherub's versatility in songwriting and dance music production ranges from grooving heartfelt ballads, to risqué club bangers that blur conventional genre barriers. Playful guitar licks and lush synthesizer textures dance around in the mix, as listeners are treated to sing-a-long hook after hook.  Cherub songs have described as, "Prince on sex-driven LSD, jamming with Radiohead on ecstasy." It's fun.

"Instead of fearing the changes seen in music performance, with technology being so readily incorporated into everyday life, Cherub looks to embrace everything that is fresh and exciting, and we seek to pioneer a new school of music composition, production, and performance,” declares Jason.  “Cheers to the future!"

HIPPIE SABOTAGE

 

Sacramento-born and raised brother duo Hippie Sabotage started to make music in the mid-2000s.  Working closely with local producer Chase Moore during their early career, they mixed the cultural melting pot vibes of their hometown with hip-hop and produced beats for rappers such as J. Leake and Yukmouth.  They later collaborated with Chicago-based artists such as Calez of 2008ighties and Kami de Chukwu.

Hippie Sabotage developed and expanded their beats and soon incorporated more diverse influences on their tracks for a whole new host of rappers such as Alex Wiley ("Something to Say") and C Plus ("Callin' Me").  They released their own material with the EP Vacants in early 2013 and followed this with a couple more singles ("White Tiger" and "Sunny") throughout the same year.  It was only in spring 2014 when singer Ellie Goulding posted their remix for "Stay High" by Swedish singer Tove Lo (songwriter for the likes of Icona Pop and Girls Aloud) on Instagram that they began to get worldwide attention. The song reached over a million hits following Goulding's endorsement and signaled a bright future for the duo.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
