REVIEW: Zoë Jakes & Beats Antique @ Faerieworlds (Mt. Pisgah, OR – 7/31/09)

FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM

We last saw Zoë Jakes dance with her troupe, Indigo Belly Dance Company with Rachel Brice & Mardi Love, at last year’s Oregon Country Fair.  She has a fun American tribal style fusion mixed with some hip-hop pops & locks.  Anyway, she’s fun, and a lot of her facial expressions remind me of one of our good friends in Ohio (who is now en route to South Carolina).

Anyway… my wife and I got free tickets to last night’s Faerieworlds 2009 festival.  My wife’s working the fest Sat & Sun, but Friday’s Zoë Jakes & Beats Antique show was the main thing I wanted to see.  They started right on time, 7:30pm, and played for 75 minutes.  Beats Antique is comprised of David Satori (Zoë’s squeeze) & Tommy Chappel.  David & Tommy both manned laptops with electronics beats and loops.  Tommy also played some hand drums, and David played violin, guitar, and provided horseback rides.  Zoë danced with 5 or 6 tunes, taking breaks to change and breathe. :)

The crowd was really into the band and Zoë, and were dancing all around us.  Near the end, David brought up a friend who was up front, and she got to dance on stage for a bit (while Zoë was off).  As the band was ending their set, the sun was going down.  It was really a great scene.

The band has a new digital -EP- out called Contraption Vol 1, and can be gotten via their webpage (not on iTunes, yet).  Check it out… it’s got some rad electronic, glitch-rock & dub mixed with world music.

Many pics are below (with a ZIP file with all of the pictures fit to print, but too many to actually post).
