Details of Geographer and the Ticket Luck value
San Francisco-based indie rock band “Geographer” formed in 2007 with an original lineup of vocalist/drummer Brian Ostreicher, synthesizer/cellist Nathan Blaz and synthesizer/guitarist/vocalist Michael Deni. They have often described their music to be ‘soulful’ and ‘from outer space’ incorporating acoustic, analog and electronic elements to create dense layers with altogether distinct sound textures.
So far they have released two studio albums; Myth and Innocent Ghosts, alongside an extended play called Animal Shapes and one single, Kites “7”.The band is known among its die hard fans for their rigorous touring routines, which includes performances with other bands such as Toro y Moi, Stars, Sea Wolf, Place to Bury Strangers, Miniature Tigers, Ladytron, Freelance Whales, Foster the People, and Atlas Sound. In their live performances, vocalist Deni often samples and loops his vocals by using an Akai MIDI controller while cellist Blaz makes use of the NS Design electric cello, frequently coupled with effects pedals, resulting in unique sounds. It is this aspect of their particularly individualistic musical style that has made Geographer tickets a sought-after treat among their small but crazily devoted fan base.
Deni moved to San Francisco for a fresh start away from his family issues and soon after spotting a synthesizer, he started to reflect his personal experiences in songs that later came to form Innocent Ghosts. Ostreicher and Blaz initially met in Boston at the Berklee College of Music. The two were later introduced to Deni on one of his open-mic performances at a local club. By 2008, the three came together as “Geographer,” releasing their debut album and beginning to perform around San Francisco’s Bay region. Their first full-length album garnered enough national and local attention so that it was only a matter of months before they signed a record deal with Tricycle Records in 2009.
The following year they released an EP comprising of six songs, the digital download edition of which contained a couple of bonus remixes of Paris and Kites. By 2011, they changed their record label to Modern Art Records in New York. Next year, the band issued their second album Myth and went on a five week tour of the US with label-mate Miniature Tiger, who are also an indie-pop band.
“Geographer” has appeared in many music festivals across North America including BFD, the MidPoint Music Festival, Austin’s South by Southwest, Noise Pop and Treasure Island Music Festival. In August 2012, they performed at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Arts and Music Festival where they played their set on the high Twin Peaks Stage before their biggest audience yet. Among their songs that brought them the most participation from the audience, included Life Of Crime, their single Kites, and Lover’s Game. The same year in September, they announced their next tour of the US comprising of twenty-one performances with another indie rock act Freelance Whales. This tour started out in Chicago’s Lincoln Hall in October and came to a close Boston’s Paradise Rock Club by early November.
Their songs have often been used in media, including films, TV shows, on website, as well as other songs. The Morning was featured in the trailer of romantic drama-comedy film of 2009, New York I Love You; Paris was included in G-side’s hip-hop track Impossible; the songs Paris, Kites and Verona were used in MTV’s The Buried Life in its second season in 2010; Can’t You Wait was used as the soundtrack for anti-gay-bullying campaign called It’s Getting Better by Pixar; their song Original Sin was featured both, the DMS Hero Video by Buuteeq as well as in the TV series Awkward and Age of Consent was made part of the feature spot on Apple’s iPad Mini on its website. Some of the band’s songs have been given the fresh remix treatment including Oversaturated by Rubblebucket, Kanye by Bogn Via, Where the Kids Are by Blondefire and Good as New by Vacationer. Their live shows are not to be missed, so book Geographer tickets so you can experience the real indie-music vibe.
