Big Lazy To Play MOTR Pub

Big Lazy

On September 10 MOTR Pub will host a very special (and free) concert by a NYC-based band that uses three instruments—guitar, upright bass, and drums—to create a rich and colorful soundscape. Big Lazy doesn’t play a lot of notes, yet their music spreads out like a wide-screen Technicolor movie that opens with a shot of a desert sky that seems to go on forever. The soundtrack you’re imagining as you listen to Big Lazy somehow combines a rural setting with a noir narrative. It only makes sense that the leader of the band, guitarist Stephen Ulrich, has composed music for HBO series Bored to Death and the film Art and Craft. If you attend the show, you’ll hear echoes of Ennio Morricone and Henry Mancini, but in a different context. Their music should sound lovely in an intimate setting like MOTR Pub. The opening act will be Cincinnati’s re-energized Tigerlilies, who have been on a roll lately with live shows and new music, some of it in the form of cassettes! Sounds like a good night to check out the merch table. Here’s a video of Big Lazy playing Elephant Walk:
