The Veldt: Bring the Love, Fuzz, and Tunes to DC.
The Veldt are an exceptional band. Fiercely original and organic. If I had to describe their sound, I'd say it's like a strange amalgamation of Jeff Buckley, Otis Redding, and My Bloody Valentine. Does that peak your interest? Well it should. The Veldt wear their emotions on their sleeve, which I love. They ooze passion. Seeing them live is an all enveloping, emotional, and yes psychedelic experience. Formed in North Carolina in the late 80's by twin brothers, Daniel and Danny Chavis. You can see how close knit they are, which adds to the way they connect with each other and the audience. I only discovered them in the last couple of years and this was my first time seeing them play. They stole the show opening for Modern English, of "I Melt With You" fame. I got to hang with them and found them warm, funny, and gracious. Can't wait to see them again soon. They've agreed to do a segment for Translove Airwaves! Stay Tuned!
