Beats Antique Blend Belly Dancing, Beatboxing, and Banjo; Why You Should Catch Them This Humpday

Throw on some Beats Antique, close your eyes, and a crazy mystical sonic world awakens. 

Electro elements flirt with Middle Eastern strings, and the fusion of sounds is pure audio enlightenment. Surprisingly, David Santori, Sidecar Tommy, and Zoe Jakes were not a threesome born in a Bedouin tent. Instead, this Cali based act carries culture past  borders, melding global sounds and modern technology. 

If that's not enough to whet your whistle for Wednesday's Beats Antique show at Culture Room, we put together a list of additional reasons to attend their unique performance this humpday. 

Two words: Zoe Jakes
Though to attend a Beats Antique show for anything other than the music itself would seem completely sacrilegious, let's say, you're a token plus-one for a date night. Then feast your eyes on belly dancer extraordinaire and creatively genius frontwoman Zoe Jakes. Her sultry hips and swirling movements are the extra seasoning to an already flavor-packed show. She'll taunt and tantalize until you're hopelessly devoted to her swerve.

Contraption Vol. II
Touring in support of new release, Contraption Vol. II, Beats Antique is sure to showcase some new gems from this stunning work of audible art. From the fusion of polka on "Bus to Balkans" to the swanky allure of urban crooner LYNX on the violin-laced whine of "Crooked Muse," the freshies will blend in oh-so-nicely in the ever-growing Beats Antique catalogue.
