What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Old Sloop Coffee House ~ Saturday, March 8, 2014 Time7:30pm

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? is like an alchemical experiment. The band fuses and integrates different genres, theories and ideas, creating new recipes to unlock hearts and unify a room. In one set the ensemble can travel from an acoustic coffeehouse to New Orleans soul, from gothic blues to a Middle Eastern desert or the woods of medieval France. Named after a Victorian children’s game, and anchored by the “haunting, chameleon-like voice” (Metronome) of singer-songwriter front-man, Brian King, the band spins new fairy tales and steeps them in folk noir and neo-cabaret. Many songs are bustling with memorable characters like a boy who turns into a cartoon or a woman who rescues herself from a tower, while others, pure and vulnerable, “deftly explore themes of love, sexuality and identity.” (Bay Windows)

Born in Gloucester, Brian King grew up with a love of the mystical. Enamored with The Wizard of Oz, King couldn’t decide who we wanted to be more, Dorothy or the Wicked Witch. Throughout his teen years Brian fell in love with the music of Siouxsie & the Banshees, Kate Bush, and later Leonard Cohen, Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell. His diary was documented in piles of cassettes containing hours of original music recorded on a Tascam 4-track.

Dave says,

Let’s welcome back that saucy Sympeglade of the (Mississippi) saxophonium and terroristic vocalist, Ms. Cheryl Arena. She’s got a sound big as her name. She’s just traded in her spurs and 15 gallon hat for a set of Uggs and a Sterno hand warmer. Yes, yes, she’s moved from politically insane Texass to the land of a thousand ironies here in Ma. Somehow a shoulder holster is a fashion no-no under a down vest. She’ll be riding into town this Thursday gunning for you!
Her posse consists of sidekick Noe something or other. Don’t know his last name but the numbers on his mugshot reads 019666. He’s the guitarist por favor.
Dynamo duties performed by that ultimate ululator on the skins, Mr. Ephraim Lowell. I’ll be crowding the plate. Still there at 8 p.m. to 11, when Noe bolts for the door to try to catch a ride to his next gig! See you then!
