Brass Box Enchant The Echo at Night Three of June Residency, joined by Crook and Dol Ikara

The Echo’s free Monday night residency features Brass Box this June. Brass Box is music for goth mermaids. It is somber, dark, and muffled. Their sound slips into the depths, sinking like a treasure chest thrown into the sea, shimmery and heavy. This past Monday at The Echo, Brass Box played under the cover of […]
