"There are certain shows on any given tour that really stand out," says Mike Gantzer, vocalist and guitarist of the Buffalo-based quartet, Aqueous. He elaborates, "Maybe we were sleep-deprived, maybe it was a full moon – whatever it was, the Kalamazoo, MI show last November had that MAGIC."
Up until now, the show has been available to fans via nugs.net, but due to the overwhelming popularity on the streaming platform geared largely towards live music fanatics, the band has decided to release a formal live record — Live From Kalamazoo. While the record dropped last Friday, February 9th, as of today, Live From Kalamazoo can be found on all major streaming platforms, including AppleMusic & Spotify.
What exactly can unknowing listeners expect to find on the latest live release from Aqueous? Gantzer explains, "The band just clicked for both sets, and the improv sections all went way out there but stayed in a deep, danceable pocket all night." He goes on to say, "This particular show kept coming up amongst fans as one of their favorites of our fall 2017 tour, so we wanted to make it available for more people to enjoy by releasing it on all major platforms."
Last week, the band kicked off their spring 2018 tour with Papadosio. Find a list of all upcoming dates below and be sure to visit the band's website to purchase tickets or for more information on specific dates.
