Outside of Fred Hamilton’s band, Brahma, there aren’t too many chances in Denton to hear what New York trio Consider the Source is putting out there.
The band comes to Hailey’s Club this weekend for what we’ll call Gingafox Production’s “bindi rock” showcase on Saturday.
Gingafox is a new booking and production company put together by Sydney Wright, of Denton’s Sol Tax, and Kitty Holt, a Denton music buff and Hailey’s Club barkeep. Under the umbrella of Gingafox, the pair has been booking acts at Hailey’s and putting shows together.
Consider the Source might be based near the Big Apple, but the fusion of jazz, Indian music and virtuosic rock (there’s a particular guitar solo in the 11-minute “Do Not Shrink Me Gypsy” that could melt a metal fan’s ever-loving face) makes Denton a plum spot for the crew to stop for a spell.
Dirge-y foundations are chased with improvisational guitar and drum runs, by Gabriel Marin and Jeff Mann, respectively, and then bassist John Ferrara kicks in some lip-folding funk.
When Fred Hamilton, a University of North Texas guitar professor, holds court with Brahma, there’s more of the Middle East representing than there is in Consider the Source, but if groove is what turns you on, circle Saturday in your date book.
Sounds like: Dave Matthews, if he’d spent a month in Madras, or the rhythm section of the One O’clock Lab Band after a Diwali feast and a hookah hit.
Details: With Dallas’ Color of Aum and more. Doors open at 9 p.m. Saturday at Hailey’s, 122 Mulberry St. Advance tickets cost $10. At the door, cover is $12 for ages 21 and older, $15 for ages 18 to 20. For tickets, visit www.haileysclub.com .
