updownup at molly malone's, aug. 9

i was sent these new tunes from my friend holly; check out their EP here:!

UpdownUp will be performing on Friday, August 9 at Molly Malone's.

The band is Richard Devletian and Jason Ryterband.  With one bandmate a former member of Jimmy Gnecco's Ours (Devletian) and the other an ex-acapella group leader and engineer - the two might seem like an unlikely duo… However, when their individual expertise melds together for UpdownUp - the duo produce sweeping sounds that offer hints of electronica and chill worthy vocals. 
they're on at 10:45 if you feel so inclined! i'm out--
