Van Go Lion Make Electro-pop Debut at Ash St. Saturday





Van Go Lion Make Electro-pop Debut at Ash St. Saturday

 

When winter gets drizzly and cold, it's nice to bounce around inside to sunny pop.

Van Go Lion have just the right blend of sugary sweetness coating their smooth electro-pop, and they're making their live premiere at Ash St. Saloon on Saturday, February 27th with loop-ninja Tony Smiley and indie sentiments from Just Lions.

Like all matches made in heaven, singer (and former Deli Portland Associate Editor!) Amy Paige met keys whiz Josh Loerzel on Craigslist. A love of Prince, Tears for Fears, Hall & Oates, Eurythmics, early Madonna, and some Boyz II Men made this pair swoon together. Hunched over their MIDI boards and Macbooks, they got serious about pop music and wanna bring some R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the genre with their self-titled debut of “retro-electro-pop.”

Through floating, downtempo ballads, punchy beats, and humming synths, Van Go Lion is a happy-go-lucky dance party for growing up and making mistakes.

Show starts at 9:30 p.m., $5.
