Broccoli Samurai/Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

When: Fri., Dec. 26, 9 p.m. 2014

The year is closing on a new Broccoli Samurai, with 2014 seeing the departures of a founding bassist and guitarist. But the horizon is a glowing one. Recent shows have upped the ante on the band’s sense of rhythm and overall tight playing. You can find a bunch of past shows online, and throughout you’ll hear an excitement about the present and the future. Pick up last year’s You Had to Be There… to get a feel for the compositional flavor of the band. Songs “Be Creative for Yourself,” “Loch Ness Lobster,” “Backwards Logic” showcase their range and ability to get audiences moving. Currently, they’re working hard in the studio on next year’s album -- with major announcements forthcoming -- and there seems to be just an overflowing atmosphere of thrills at Broccoli Samurai HQ. They have a tendency to play spectacular shows around Christmastime in Cleveland, so you’ll not want to miss this one. (Sandy)
