The Bronzed Chorus at Snug Harbor tonight (8/31/2012)

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 8:26 AM

THE BRONZED CHORUS We’ve all seen enough duos to know the common narrative — holy shit, can you believe two people are making that much sound?, etc. But bands like The Bronzed Chorus, from Greensboro, explodes that conceit a bit. This is to say that many of those duos we’ve been calling “full-sounding” for so many years now come off as a little bit lacking, a little bit thin, trebly and incomplete, next to The Bronzed Chorus’ thickness and drive. These guys’ tonal range is closer to that of Providence band The Body — another guitar-and-drums two-piece that never leaves the house without a healthy low end. In The Bronzed Chorus, that low end tends to come from multi-tasking drummer Hunter Allen — he often plays a synth with one hand. Guitarist Adam Joyce plays busily, though tastefully, often tackling melodic and rhythmic lines on his beat-up black Les Paul. The result? Maserati, as played by two people. With The Bear Romantic, The Winter Sounds, and I Was Totally Destroying It. $5. Aug. 31, 9 p.m. Snug Harbor, 1228 Gordon St. 704-333-9799.
