Brown Shoe Are Playing Fontana's on March 29th (shoegazer alt-rock)

Brown Shoe Plays Fontana's on March 29thFolsom, California alt-rock shoegazers Brown Shoe are playing a show at Fontana's on March 29th. The band is touring behind their third release Jackalope which came out toward the end of last year.

Here is how the Times-Delphic (which is the Drake University student paper) describes Brown Shoe:

Although the hint of different bands can be heard here and there, Brown Shoe's songs have their own unique flavor. They don't hit you with a lot of guitar right off the bat but, instead, build each song into its own musical story. Each note and chorus builds to end with a pleasant sound of soothing vocals and what Baggaley labels "tribal drums."

"Our sound is influenced by all of the current bands, but we try to separate ourselves from the music we enjoy in order to come up with our sound," said Aaron Baggaley, the band's guitarist.

Tickets for the show are $8.00 and the show starts at 8PM.
