Asa Ransom and Co Invade the Slope

Tonight, Southpaw will play host to the Spanish Prisoners, Bonne Baxter, and headliner, Asa Ransom, in a show beginning at 8:30 PM (doors open at 8:00 PM). The 4-piece band based in Brooklyn formed in June of last year and have been performing across the US since January, as well as collaborating with other artists like Titus Andronicus and The So So Glos.

Originally from Marion, Indiana, they describe their music as a "dance-inspired, dramatic style of instrumentation is upbeat and delivered with vibrant intensity. Vocals drift through an epic of phantom sounds. Melodic bass and feral drums rumble under chiming guitar and percussive keyboard, conjuring at once memories of the east and textures of the future".

Their first album "An Asa Ransom Release!", was released in April of this year and was released by Murder Mystery Records.
