      EVENT DETAILS
      Sons Of An Illustrious Father

      with Knife Wife
      Started in as a group of two, who grew to five, but settled at three, Sons Of An Illustrious Father is the musical outlet of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and Ezra Miller. Everyone plays a little of everything; everyone writes the songs. They frequently tradeinstruments, and co-produce their music Theyve released a couple much-loved albums, an EP, and have toured multiple times throughout America. Their sound is a bit punk, a bit folk, a bit raw, and a bit elemental, a mix theyve summed up and named genre queer. Due out in mid 2018 Sons newest creation, a tightly-coiled, gorgeously prismatic collection of 9 songs, is titled Deus Sex Machina: or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla. After two albums, its the first time the band has experimented with electronics, nestling machine-made droplets and hums, turns and whirs, amongst their visceral melodies. Its also an album that reconciles with the struggles of our now, aresponse to the sociopolitical and technological climate. And like all things Sons do, its an all-encompassing response - a record for every person who feels unseen, unidentified, ill at ease in the current political climate who seeks them out as a salve. Their inherent inclusivity, vulnerability, and expression makes them more than three parts creating a whole; these things make the band and their expansive new record aresonant, emotional movement.
