Pencilgrass Reunion Show w/s/g Mister F!

Rare reunion show with one of the most beloved bands from the mid 2000 New Haven scene. If you saw them back in the day, you know you need to hit this. If you didn't? Well now you can find out what all the fuss was about! And we're thrilled to have Mister F on board to start off the night with their magical blend of fusion fueled jams and sharp songwriting.

Starting in November of 2002, Pencilgrass fought their way up the ranks of pretenders and contenders to become Miami's undisputed champions of soul. This seven man party machine creates sounds that fuel dance floor heroics by even those most stoic. Pencilgrass left Miami for the northeast in August of 2003.

"Prog-R&B?" "Glam-Soul?" Pencilgrass just calls what they do "Dance Music." And that's exactly what they deliver. It is through the head-bobbing, rump-shaking melodies and beats, the introspectacular lyrics and Barry White-esque crooning of Eddie Pren, and their live hi-jinx that these "white punks on funk" generate the party and invite in all takers. Pencilgrass like to consider themselves a sort of dance music compendium, referencing such experts as Sly and The Family Stone, the soul-disco artists of the 1970's, and Bad Brains. All the while, they wear their Miami roots on their sleeves, brandishing latin rhythms and electronic noise.
