DROP ELECTRIC with special guest Margot MacDonald
Drop Electric released its debut album on Lefse Records in October 2013 to critical acclaim. Garnering praise from NPR, MTVU and The Washington Post, the band’s music was also featured in the trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire. Known for their energetic live concerts and diverse musical range, this performance, created specifically for their engagement in the Dome Theatre, will immerse the audience in a haunting, engaging musical journey that charts the path of human evolution using brand new sounds and images. Often compared to Sigur Ros and Explosions in the Sky, the band’s aesthetic comes partially from the members’ shared experiences as children of immigrant families. Their music carries an air of slight unfamiliarity and plays with the expectations of music, a nice counterbalance to the business-as-usual ethos of Washington, DC, where they are currently based.
