What Cheer? Brigade, Barb, Floating Teeth

When: Wed., June 21, 9 p.m. 2017

Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, the twenty-piece What Cheer? Brigade will not fit on The Pinhook's stage. It's for the best, though, as it means you'll enjoy a full immersion in the band's ebullient, massive sound. Trumpets and trombones wail and squeal while drums and tubas rumble and roar, forces made all the more powerful in the round. The group leans heavily on Balkan influences but laces them with a punk sensibility and a fearless DIY spirit, which all translates into magnificently boisterous live sets. "Iahabibi," the first track from the band's new album, You Can't See Inside of Me, is a restless, rollicking number carried by wriggly call-and-response horns. It doesn't matter what might be ailing you—work stress, world stress, whatever—the What Cheer? Brigade will gleefully blow it all away. With BARB. —Allison Hussey
