Pree CD Release
DC's May Tabol, formerly of Le Loup, is now fronting Pree. Very reminiscent of Modest Mouse and also likened to Regina Spektor and Joanna Newsom, they are having a little throw down at Black Cat tonight for the upcoming release of their new EP, A Chopping Block, which is set for official release on The Kora Records March 24.
Many musicians from some of your favorite area bands also made a contribution to the record, such as John Thayer and Susan Hsu of Exit Clov, Tom Hnatow of These United States, Vanessa Degrassi of Ash Lovely, and Randy Scope of Donny Hue and the Colors/The Sleeping Secrets. Along with Tabol on keys, guitar and vocal duties, the core band is Chris Dewitt on drums, Vanessa Degrassi on mandolin and flute, and David Barker on electric guitar.
Get there early to catch opener and fellow labelmate Meredith Bragg, as well as Birdlips.
