‘Dark End of the Street’
All roads lead to Legends, as BoomBox brings its “Dark End of the Street” tour to Boone.
The name might sound dark, but the multi-instrumentalist duo is shining light on a new blend of music – digital Southern rock ’n’ roll.
Their goal is “to connect people with a vintage mix of Motown and psychedelic dance beats.”
BoomBox’s Zion Rock Godchaux and Russ Randolph use a multi-track platform to create their own sound on the fly, finding a rhythm that moves with the audience.
Each live show is unique to the venue and the crowd, who Godchaux and Randolph said are the driving force of the live, rhythmic experience.
“It’s all natural, and it’s all real time, and that’s why it’s rock ’n’ roll,” Godchaux said, adding that there’s no set list.
Rather, the duo enjoys observing its surroundings and custom-making music to fit the crowd.
“We just want to go out with no game plan,” Randolph said. “That way it’s fresh for us, and we can follow the energy of the crowd. We’re down to get down, and we hope that people are down with us.”
BoomBox gets down Thursday, Oct. 20, at 9 p.m. at Legends, located on Hardin Street in Boone. Tickets cost $10 for students in advance and $12 for guests and students at the door.
