When: Fri., Aug. 24, 8 p.m. 2018
Maria Nuccilli, Alex Glendening, and Zak Frieling are Deadbeat Beat — Detroit’s feel-good, Baby Spice-obsessed (peep their video for “See You All the Time”), lo-fi revivalist trio. They dropped one of Metro Times’ favorite tracks of 2017 with “You Lift Me Up” and followed up with “Bar Talk” earlier this year. Now, they’re back with “Tree, Grass, & Stone” — a two-part track à la Television's "Marquee Moon" and "lots of James Brown and Funkadelic singles," according to Glendening — released on 7-inch via Crystal Palace Records. To commemorate the release, Deadbeat Beat has enlisted the Kickstand Band and Chicago-based Dream Version for a late-summer blowout.
