With Earth Day right around the corner, there are lots of things you can do to help â€œSave the Planet.â€ For the pop-rock trio Bravenoise, their part includes doing what they do best, playing music. As part of their â€œActs of Greenâ€ campaign, the band and their fans will embrace a different â€œact of greenâ€ every week for the next month. Their goal is simple yet undeniably awesome: to offset the carbon footprint created by their 2012 tour schedule, and production of their debut album.
The same descriptionâ€”simple yet undeniably awesomeâ€”could be applied to the album itself.
The band is a smoothly melded compilation of a classically-trained musician with a bluegrass background, an Italian drummer with an affinity for â€œmonsterâ€ drummers such as Stewart Copeland (The Police) and Aaron Comess (The Spin Doctors) and a bassist hailing from the Red Dirt music scene of Oklahoma and Texas. Their debut album, â€œEverything Was and Everything Will Be,â€ is an equally smooth compilation of sounds. A little bit funk. A little bit pop. A little bit of rock nâ€™ roll. And with the help of their â€œActs of Green Campaign,â€ completely carbon free! Now thatâ€™s an Earth Day activity I can get behind.
Check out the band for yourself. They are just one of many incredible acts performing at RAW: natural born artists this Thursday, April 12 at CafÃ© Asia in Arlington. Other upcoming shows can be found at bravenoise.com.
