MarchFourth!, a "musical and performance group" from Portland, OR that supplements their lineup of horns, percussion, bass and guitar with stilt-walkers, acrobats and dancers, is coming to St. Louis to play an all-ages show at 8:00 p.m. Monday, October 19 at the Old Rock House.
Sporting mutated, mismatched marching band uniforms and playing mostly original, instrumental music, the group (pictured) incorporates "influences from rock, ska, jazz, klezmer, Hip Hop, and swing styles of music, among others."
They've toured Germany, The Netherlands, France, British Columbia, China and the United States, turning up with some frequency on the summer festival circuit here, as well as taking on all sorts of other gigs, from opening for No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani to playing in a Microsoft commercial. You can see a video of them performing "Dynomite" back in 2012 in the embedded window below.
Tickets for MarchFourth! at the Old Rock House are $15 in advance, $18 day of show and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Friday, August 21.
