Scarecrow.jpg

SCARECROW

Sunday, March 13

Blue Moon Saloon

Doors: 9 p.m.


After 500 gigs in 15 countries, during 6 years, in a fully DIY attitude, Scarecrow become one of France's most hard-touring bands. Dark, explosive and strangely coherent, the quartet innovates by proposing a real and unique style: the Blues-Hiphop, protest music of the XXIth century, thorned from a dobro or scratched from an old vinyl….From working songs born in american cotton fields in the early 20th, to urban sounds fed by big cities in the 80's, the quartet give an original tribute to the founding movements in playing with the musical codes, bringing back the blues to the harassing sun, and hip hop to its instrumental's roots. On stage, Slim Paul -the bluesman- and Antibiotik Daw -MC 'n DJ- settle generations in a dangerous exercise: melt two languages, two cultures and two instruments that nothing attract, followed by the unbelievable groove of the bass/drums Jamo and le Pap’s. The mood, the sound, the show... Scarecrow, it's groove and consciousness, the band manages to do just that is rare, combine the form and content.
