The Dear Hunter / 3

Saturday / December 13, 2008 / 7:00 p.m.
Cafe 939
939 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States
02115

The Dear Hunter is a self-dubbed "indie," now full-time project of Casey Crescenzo, formerly of post-hardcore band the Receiving End of Sirens. The band's sound is not unlike that of Sirens, but with more alternative and progressive rock tendencies and a wider variety of instrumentation.

Crescenzo has announced that they are currently working on nine albums inspired by the colors of the visible spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet), with black and white added as bookends. The albums will include many guest appearances and span many different genres of music.

3 is a band apart. Dark yet uplifting, spiritual without any connection to religion—its sound transcends the genre conformity of modern pop culture. Rapid-fire acoustic guitar infused with dynamic percussion, animated drumming, and thunderous bass culminate in a listening experience that is at once accessible and unique. Polyrhythms pulse within a symphony of driving metal guitars and melodic vocal acrobatics. 3 offers musicality without pretension.

Admission: 
General admission, $13 advance, $15 day of show
