The Raleigh is proud to host experimental pop band Man Man with supporters GRLwood. Pre-sale tickets are $13, door tickets on day of show are $17.
Man Man is a highly revered, avant-garde rock band born out of the weird streets of Philadelphia and now brewing in the even weirder sunshine of Los Angeles. The band sounds nothing like but is frequently compared to some of the more well-known godfathers of the genre, Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, Can, and The Residents. The ever-evolving ensemble mixes and mashes a variety of genres from ragtime to rock, electronic to acoustic, doo-wop to exorcism and it revels in defying classifications, expectations, and anything remotely cliché. Still, what emerges from that mixture are beautifully crafted little pop earworms that can’t easily be dislodged from your brain.
Opening act GRLwood is a self-described SCREAM-POP duo, comprising a couple of “Kentucky fried queerdos, wailing at max capacity, from Louisville, KY.” Established in 2017, GRLwood “exploded onto Louisville’s music scene, quickly earning them a cult-like following.”
We here at The Raleigh have prided ourselves on being able to both support a plethora of local art and culture, as well as present unique programming by creators from literally around the globe. With these endeavors, of course, come higher up-front costs, and in order to continue to organize these events we need the community’s support. That said, boasting some of the best acoustics and most skilled sound technicians in southern West Virginia, we guarantee that this concert is one that you won’t want to miss!
