Boone’s 641rpm is steeping its tunes in the ’60s.

On Thursday, March 8, the downtown record store is bringing two acts to Black Cat Burrito, Slowdance and The Critters.

“Both are rock-pop bands, kind of steeped in ’60s sounds – girl groups, maximum R&B, fun,” 641’s Travis Reyes said.

Based in Brooklyn, N.Y., Slowdance mixes ethereal, international pop and girl-group sounds.
“In a perfect world, this band would be huge,” Reyes said. “But this isn’t a perfect world, and they’re not – yet. Come see them before the world perfects itself.”

Reyes said Asheville-based The Critters is quickly becoming one of his North Carolina favorites. The group describes itself as “an original psychedelic pop and rock extravaganza … hailed for their energetic, uninhibited live performances.”

The show starts at 10 p.m. Thursday, March 8, at Black Cat Burrito, located at 127 S. Depot St. in downtown Boone. Cover costs $5. Only those 18 and older will be admitted.
