Oh! Pears EP Release Party at JB’s March 13

When Corey Duncan left Pattern Is Movement in ‘07, he didn’t sever ties with his former band mates completely. Instead, he worked long and hard with drummer Chris Ward to create beautifully grandiose recordings for his project Oh! Pears. 13 people coming together, playing two violas, a violin, two cellos, four guitars, two drum situations, a flute, a trumpet, lots of vocals, and clapping later; the Fill Your Lungs EP was conceived. Tonight’s momentous show at Johnny Brenda’s marks the album release where Duncan and his troop of instrumentalists play with The Mural and The Mint, whose Jack McBrearty happens to be one of the thirteen. Ever since working on Private Pockets with Brian McTear, the band has been gaining widespread local attention. But since you can download their music for free on their website you can easily form your own opinion. Rest assured though, this is certain to be one melodic show. Johnny Brenda’s, 12 01 N.
