The Black Atlantic Turns the Tide in Toledo...

The Black Atlantic rolls into Toledo this weekend for a highly anticipated performance at The Ottawa Tavern on Friday, March 26th. The show's promoter, Shakin' Promotions, has allowed The Lone Microphone & to help set up an In-Store performance at Culture Clash Records (4020 Secor Road). At the time of this post, it looks like the acoustic style gig will take place sometime around 6pm. This band has begun to make a name for itself in the states and will be coming this way after what is sure to be a successful showing at SXSW in Austin, TX. Their soft acoustic style can be defined as simple sweetness...with rich textured melodies that are powerful enough to pick you up and carry you away. Try to make both performances...this will be a good one.

As described on their website:
The Black Atlantic is an acoustic indie pop band from Groningen, the Netherlands. Their music is an introspective and intimate affair of melancholy, folk influenced acoustic pop, relying heavily on vocal harmonies and melody on soft strummed guitars, piano and minimal percussion. The band often uses nature imagery to express their stories on love, death and family. The band has toured in various incarnations around the world (US, EU, UK) and have played with bands such as Nada Surf, Patrick Watson and Saturday Looks Good to Me.
