On the surface, you could say Al Scorch is some sort of punk-folk musician, creating inside the space between those two genres. And you would, of course, be wrong.
What stands out about this band is the musical sophistication that resides in the crafting of each song. The knowledge of music, no matter the genre. Whether it be classical, rock and roll, traditional Irish folk music, punk rock, country, etc., etc., the compositions of each song prove time and time again that passionate, musical historians are at work here. The consciousness of where music has come from and where it is headed.
They play it fast. They play it precise. They play it with a degree of consideration of the ground that sound first arrived from. They play it their way. And don’t give a damn what genre you want to peg them in.
The excitement and hyper-energy they play with is quintessential in providing their audience with an experience that is unforgettable, and we’re super stoked to have them in this year’s line-up.
