Dark Dark Dark / Milagres / Meghan Yates

Who Dark Dark Dark / Milagres / Meghan Yates When Monday, October 18, 2010 8:00pm – $7 – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoDark Dark Dark’s sound draws heavily on Americana and Eastern European influences, referencing a long tradition of wandering musicians and those who have lived deeply. Their small array of age-old instruments conjures a lush musical vision of the future with banjos and accordions swimming next to haunting group vocals. Following the release of their stunning EP last year, they return to SPACE in support of their new full-length, “Wild Go”. Brooklyn’s Milagres (formerly known as The Secret Life Of Sofia) craft beautifully ambitious music centered around the work of songwriter Kyle Wilson. “Seven Summits” is about his obsession with mountain climbing and was recorded on an abandoned farm in Massachusetts.
