What do you get when you mix a funky, indie disco band and craft beer?
The Festival de Cans featuring Escort at 9:30 Club, presented by Flying Dog as part of the Craft Brewers Conference!
Seventeen-piece, Brooklyn-based Escort have been quite a hit on the dance floor since releasing the single "Starlight" in 2006. The band began as a duo when founders Dan Balis and Eugene Cho banned together to"make records in the spirit of the old ones [they] were sampling." Since then, the disco revival project has expanded to include lead singer Adeline Michle and a multi-membered "disco orchestra" to create the retro yet contemporary music for which they are known. Indeed, in recent years, Escort have received accolades for both their live show and debut, eponymous album released in 2011.
In addition to the groovy live music, this special show also features an exploration through the evolution of beer advertising with contributions from Flying Dog, The Brewer’s Art, Brooklyn, DC Brau, Golden Road, Half Acre, Maui, New Belgium, Oskar Blues, Revolution Sierra Nevada, and Starr Hill. Films will be screened alongside some of the best vintage beer commercials from the last half-century.
