Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Sassafraz/Consider the Source/Ancestral Warship

When: Thu., Oct. 10, 9 p.m. 2013

Combining jazz, rap and experimental psychedelic guitar, Sassafraz isn't only one of the most followed up-and-coming Ohio bands but it's also a very forward-thinking group that challenges the established boundaries of the genre. The guys recorded their newest album, Time Will Tell, Atlanta recording studio Tree Sound Studios, the same place where Drake, Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and Usher have cut tracks. And the quality shows. Time Will Tell sounds like a professionally recorded album that could be on the radio. Emerson B, emcee for the group, brings an infectious energy to the live show as he dances and flails his body about on stage, and Eric Turner's guitar solos get the crowd moving to strange distorted licks that sound more like dubstep rhythms than traditional riffs. The music's flow will impress rock fans, and the technical playing will impress jazz fans. (William Hoffman)
