Dream Safari Opening for Norwegian Arms & Jamaican Queens at PhilaMOCA July 19

Dream Safari Opening for Norwegian Arms & Jamaican Queens at PhilaMOCA July 19

Hot off last month’s release of Night Howl, Dream Safari (formerly known as Flamingos) will be kicking things off tonight at PhilaMOCA.  Songwriter and the creative mind behind the project, Chris Coulton, will no doubt bring the same electro dance beats that exist on his debut EP to the live setting. Hopefully those attending will have on their dancing shoes because not only does Coulton create an 80s-inspired, world sound, but he also weaves dance-pop expertly between the ambiance. Amidst the serious groove is a wistful lyricism, yearning for a time past while remaining at peace with its distance. Headlining the evening is Deli fave, Norwegian Arms. Wandering instrumentals that cascade from one emotion to the next is a mainstay for the local outfit. Also handpicked for the bill is Motor City’s Jamaican Queens, who really impressed Norwegian Arms frontman Brendan Mulvihill earlier this year at SXSW. Come out and hook up the traveling band from Detroit with some gas money. If the city just declared bankruptcy, then just imagine how much its musicians are struggling. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $8 - $10 Donation, All Ages - Shaylin O’Connell
