Fall in love on the dance floor
NORTH ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS — If extroversion had a musical embodiment, it would be in the sounds and rhythms of Brooklyn’s Legs. Blending modern indie pop with Stax-worthy hooks, they are a mobile cauldron of everything retro and cosmopolitan. Bring a date, or find one here. Legs plays MASS MoCA’s Club B-10 on Saturday, February 14, at 8pm.
Two sets of brothers and one good friend make up the fresh-faced band, a five-man surge of energy that defines its sound as indie dance, soul, and “new disco.” Legs’ highest priority on stage is to ensure that every person in the audience is having a great time, and with a funky sound, kinetic style, and unbeatable onstage chemistry, success is always guaranteed. This Valentine’s Day, the band leaves its beloved Brooklyn behind to treat MASS MoCA audiences to an evening of mind-clearing, soul-freeing, heart-warming, and dance-inspiring music.
Formed in 2013, Legs made its debut at legendary Lower East Side music mecca Arlene’s Grocery, and hasn’t stopped moving since. The band released a Kickstarter-funded, self-titled debut EP of five songs, recorded and engineered at New York City’s Saltlands Studios, where Wilco, Alexi Murdoch, and Josh Ritter are alums. One track, “So Obvious,” was featured in the 2014 full-length feature film, Obvious Child, written and directed by Gillian Robespierre and starring Jenny Slate.
Legs performs in MASS MoCA’s Club B-10 on Saturday, February 14, at 8pm. Dinner and snacks are available from Lickety Split before and during the show. A full bar serves Berkshire Brewing Company beers and Berkshire Mountain Distillery spirits. Tickets are $8 for students, $12 in advance, $18 day of, and $24 preferred. Tickets for all events are available through the MASS MoCA box office located on Marshall Street in North Adams, open 11am – 5pm Wednesdays through Mondays; closed Tuesdays through spring 2015. Tickets can also be charged by phone by calling 413.662.2111 during box office hours or purchased on-line at massmoca.org. All events are held rain or shine.
This performance is sponsored by The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA.
