Let's Go See Zammuto Thursday Night

Posted By on Wed, Sep 24, 2014 at 10:00 AM

You might remember the indie-electronic-collage-folk act The Books from the illustrious decade of the 00s. Well, you might remember them if you're the type of person who reads Pitchfork everyday, they weren't exceptionally famous in the larger sense of music notoriety, but they were a duo making unique and interesting music - speaking of Pitchfork, the site placed the Books' first album, Thought for Food, on their top 200 albums of the 2000s at #125.

Nick Zammuto of the band has been on his own for awhile, performing under his surname along with his brother on bass, bringing that project to Flycatcher Thursday, Sept. 25, promoting his new album, Anchor. Anchor's an interesting mix of placid electronica, the collage work of his previous band and occasionally a weird funk romp ("IO," which has an awesome video shot at Zammuto's Vermont farm and featuring a giant slingshot). Like The Books, it's a little hard to say exactly what Zammuto sounds like (I mean, he barely sounds like what he used to sound like), but if you're interested in hearing someone with a lot to say playing around with his toys, you'll want to head to Flycatcher for this show.

Tickets for Zammuto are $12 for the 21 and over show at 7 p.m. More info at Stateside Presents.
