      EVENT DETAILS
      JAMES WORLD

      with Justus Proffit, Tsone, CRYOGEYSER, JOHN MUIR (DJ Set)
      James World is Michael Madrid, vocals/guitar; Nate Ray, drums; Harrison Ray, bass guitar; Connor Sanchez, synthesizer/vocals; and Kalebh Ryals, guitar. Previously, James World issued an EP back in 2016 under the name James Band.Michael, Nate and Harrison met back in the early 2000s, in church where they grew up playing in youth groups and sharpening their collaborative abilities, and eventually met Kalebh and Connor down the road of life. James World thrives on frequent improvisation and real world trauma repurposed into loud, emotional outbursts and quiet, intimate moments.The five-piece bands upcoming record Funny Dreams, evokes This Heat, and the Dismemberment Plan melded with the poetic vulnerability of Jeff Buckley. The 10-song album is an album-oriented experience, brimming with chiming alt-rock ballads, dense sound collage pieces, ambitiously immersive arrangements, and heart-pumping loud/soft dynamics. Funny Dreams first single will be Dominos, an imaginatively arranged alt-rock opus that traverses densely detailed guitar interlace and quiet ethereal beauty. Beneath this gorgeously arranged instrumentation is a powerful treatise on emotionality. Michael explains: When I watch people in line starring blankly at either their phones or the back of someone elses head, I sometimes wonder if they will all fall down if I tap them on the back. The song deals with the idea that not being vulnerable or caring amounts to just standing in line and not feeling anything. I want people to feel and experience love, Michael shares.
