What To Do Tuesday: Maza Blaska and more
The great show tonight at Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave., features these four acts: (1) Maza Blaska, whose percussive, tropical take on pop-rock reminds me of Beck with a more minimalist bent, or Devendra Banhart with a slight electronic tinge. The group features Yoni Mizrachi on vocals and guitar, Karate Coyote's Sam Corlett on vocals and various instruments (mandolin/glockenspiel), some dude named Kyle on bass and recent addition Blake Miller — he of the amazing lo-fi folkie solo career — on guitar and various special effects. I hear keyboard maestro Dane Terry will be sitting in tonight too, and with all that talent in the fold, they just might be the night's highlight.
(2) Black Love, a reconfigured version of the awesome TI-83 Plus, will bring their twee-infected pop tunes to the stage, as will (3) Brooklyn's Brook Pridemore and (4) Mansfield's Sovroncourt. 10 p.m. and free as can be.
