Welcome Back Free Show with NEMES 1/21

Thursday, January 7th, 2016 by The Professor

Nemes-Promo-Grid Welcome back to campus from WLOY and Late Night Loyola! Our first FREE CONCERT of the semester will be 8-10pm in McGuire Hall, Thursday January 21st featuring NEMES from Boston! How good are they? How about: “One of the top 5 unsigned bands in the country” -Alternative Press.

Nemes (pronounced knee•miss) has made their mark on the Boston and larger New England music scene by playing everywhere from subway stations to highly-revered rock venues. Led by duel-frontmen Dave Anthony and Josh Knowles, the band showcases a true metamorphosis of sound, featuring warm, layered harmonies and one-of-a-kind violin shredding Vanyaland describes as “fiddle-action glory.” These components are delicately layered across captivating original songs to form what Under the Gun Review calls “some of the most engaging music we’ve heard,” garnering shout-outs from national and international acts such as Alt-J and Nirvana.

Released in the fall of 2015, their debut studio full-length album, “I Carry Your Heart,” has lifted the band from the subway stations of Boston to larger stages around the region, performing as support for acts such as X Ambassadors and Guster. The album was co-produced and mixed by Rick Kwan (Jim James, My Morning Jacket) and funded by a combination of busking, gigging, and crowd-funding. The 11-track record is an exploration of four minds working to create a resonant, cathartic listening experience.

Check out “I Carry Your Heart” on Bandcamp
