About: Derde Verde
Indie-rock trio Derde Verde crafts colorful, chameleon-like song structures sprinkled with noise, analog electronics, melodic guitar lines and rhythmic twists. The L.A. based band named themselves after Val Verde, a rural valley town of coyotes, rolling hills, and big sky, an hour north of the city.
Comprised of songwriters Sarah Ellquist (vocals) and Daniel DeBlanke (guitar), Ihui Cherise Wu (keys, backing vocals) and rhythm section Keith Boyarsky (bass) and Preston Scott Phillips (drums), Robotanists have spent the past couple of years spreading their big choruses and delicate prose across North America on tour and on the radio. Their breakthrough single “Wait a Minute Here” (from the band’s 2008 debut, Close Down The Woods) topped charts in Los Angeles (KCRW, KROQ) and other major cities across the US.
Don’t forget, this Sunday (July 22) is also the last day that food will be served at the café.
