Communion is a world-wide phenomenon that started in London in 2006. The aim is to expose independent artists and introduce fans to new music. Some artists that are involved internationally and nationally are Daughter, Twin Peaks, and Ben Howard. Lucky for us, we have our very own Communion scene at the Bishop each month. For November, The Soil & The Sun, Count This Penny, and The Underhills will be featured.
The Soil & The Sun hails from Grand Rapids, MI and is “a corn-fed, Experiential Spiritual Orchestral Rock” group. As Hoosiers, I think we can all agree that corn is life, and therefore appreciate the hazy melodies produced by this group.
Count This Penny is another Midwest band from Wisconsin. Their genre is more folk-country, and they’ve opened for acts such as The Head & The Heart and Kacey Musgraves.
Local Bloomington band, The Underhills, is a folk and bluegrass group that has awesome sets. I can only say this because I’ve seen them once, and I can’t wait to see them again.
So if you’d like to come out and support some great Midwestern bands, head out to The Bishop on Tuesday night. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and tickets cost $10 in advance and $15 day of.
