Doors were at 7 and the show began at 8. By that time, the vast majority of attendees had made their way into the theater to grab drinks from the bar and find their seats. Those who didn’t make it there at 8, missed out on a fantastic opportunity to catch local band, Astrablak. The group, formally known as Zuluzuluu, has been climbing the charts of the local scene through critic support, larger-band endorsement, and of course, killer stage presence. The band played a tightly composed 45-minute set influenced by both modern electronic noise and fundamental funk and jazz compositions. The group explored large, more existential ideas such as existence within our Universe as well as a smaller, more predominant theme, of existence in our country as a minority. With their roots planted firmly in the local scene and spring approaching, I would argue without a doubt this group is bound to shoot up and make its way into many people’s music listening.
