Flux Capacitor + Escaper at Arch Street Tavern

  • Arch Street Tavern (map)

Flux Capacitor-
Hard to describe, impossible to pin down, Flux dives into the void and returns with a song.
Born and raised (literally) as a power trio, the Specht brothers’ intuitive dynamics are the engine of Flux Capacitor’s progressive, psychedelic rock sound. Steady regional touring, emanating from their Reading, PA home base earned the band broader recognition, ultimately landing them on festivals like Bonnaroo, The Peach Music Festival Wormtown Music Festival, Domefest and The Werk Out. Flux Capacitor’s melding of varied rock idioms with elements of electronica- in the context of fluid improvisation- and an ear for melody and song structure made them a perfect fit for support gigs with artists like Papadosio, Lotus, Dopapod, Twiddle and others who share a musical and cultural aesthetic with Flux Capacitor and their steadily growing fan base. With three full length albums, a live album and three singles under their belt, Flux just released their fourth studio album in December 2018.

The literal definition of Escaper is "one who escapes confinement". Named "On the Verge" by Relix Magazine, this Brooklyn based space rock band strive for a sound without limits while keeping the dance party going. Signed to Ropeadope Records.

They recently came off a tour with JEDI (ft. Aaron Johnston of Brazilian Girls & Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits). This tour saw Aron Magner sit in with the band, as well as JEDI bringing up members of Escaper to play on stage with them.They have also shared bills with the likes of Karl Denson and Jon Fishman

“With multifaceted, oftentimes soaring jams, Escaper’s opening set of tunes set a groovy and rocking vibe for the rest of the evening.” - Jambase (regarding opening for The Mallett Brothers, featuring Jon Fishman of Phish, at Brooklyn Bowl on 4/12/18).

"A mind blowing set filled with psychedelic guitar virtuosity, tight grooves, and impressive musicianship." - The Jamwich
