An Under Cover Weekend 6: Night Two
Forget what you know about cover bands. All those weddings spent dancing with your awkward uncle to a jazz combo covering “Baby Got Back” have given the cover a bad name — We’re here to make it cool again.
Imagine this: the best bands in St. Louis, pulling out all of the stops and performing an entire set as their favorite group. Still not convinced? Check out Undercoverweekend.com to read up on the amazing weekends of the past and/or scroll down to see how unbelievable 2012 is going to be.
The seven members of Via Dove are in many ways, out of time. Acknowledging their impending finality, and finding liberty in a collection of songs that have been a work-in-progress for the entirety of the band's existence, Via Dove is using the present as a vehicle to merge the future and the past. On Record Store Day, April 19th, 2014, the band will release 'Fugue State', an EP comprised of five songs that, along with the entirety of their back catalogue, will be given away for free. These songs personify Via Dove's meandering journey thus far, stand as a rewarding milemarker for this incarnation of the band, and prove that in some ways time travel is real, just probably not in the way that you were thinking.
Dots Not Feathers
Dots Not Feathers was originally formed as a collaboration between Stephen Baier and Ryan Myers. It soon grew into something much more with the addition of Ravi Raghuram adding vocals and various instrumentation. Lastly with the addition of Katy Durrwachter on piano these four friends from the Midwest became the band you hear today. Add 4 parts vocal harmonies, 2 parts creative instrumentation, 1 part ghost rock piano and 1 part jazz folk guitar parts and you get Dots Not Feathers.
We sound like your childhood.
