Crescent Ballroom Hosts Super Stereo, Snake! Snake! Snakes!
Scottsdale, AZ 5/3/12– Valley-based indie dance act Super Stereo has been on hiatus for the first half of 2012, after a dynamite debut year. Ready to dust off the live sound gear and get back on stage, theyʼve got a big batch of new songs to share and are doing in style at Phoenixʼs premiere venue, The Crescent Ballroom on Saturday June 9th with colleagues Snake! Snake! Snakes!, TABS, and Factories.
Upon signing a deal with Fervor Records, the band released an introductory album titled This Is Futurepop. The label sent them to NYC to make a slick video for the single “Life Passed Me By”, which was then picked up by MTV networks and spent 24 weeks in the top ten on MTVU.com. As of today, their vid has seen nearly 117,000 hits on MTV.com alone and regularly broadcasts in bars, clubs, bowling alleys, department stores and other retail spots across the USA.
Last year, tracks from Super Stereoʼs full length album appeared in many hit TV shows, including Bones (Fox), The Real L Word (Showtime), Rizzoli & Isles (TNT), Keeping Up With The Kardashians (E!), and multiple episodes of hipster favorite Parks & Recreation (NBC). So far in 2012, theyʼve made it into several editions of Access Hollywood (NBC), Kourtney and Kim Take New York (E!), and The Set Up Squad (Logo).
Technically, the 5-piece electropop act emerged from their creative break a couple weeks ago when they opened for Vanessa Carlton on the main stage at the Phoenix Pride Festival. But the upcoming June performance will mark the official ʻrelaunchʼ with an accessible nightclub show that they are offering to fans for a meager $5 entrance fee.
Joining them will be emerging national act Snake! Snake! Snakes!, whoʼve been getting a steady buzz on college radio across the country and were recently mentioned by Paste Magazine as ʻa band to watchʼ from Phoenix. Also on the bill are Factories, who were handpicked by the New Times music editors as an ideal candidate to share a night with Super Stereo in a blog post earlier this week.
The Crescent Ballroom is located in the heart of downtown Phoenix at 308 N. Second Avenue and features a menu by renowned chefs Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco) and Doug Robson (Gallo Blanco). The event, which is scheduled for Saturday June 9th is strictly 21+. Doors open at 7:30 and tickets are available online for $5.
