Healing Potpourri

Healing Potpourri’s Bossa Pop at Noise Pop

Ah, what a dreamy fine time it is listening to Healing Potpourri. These guys have mastered the art of the silky bossa nova beach vibes, complete with clips of seagulls chuckling away. Songs are pure charm without being too cutesy, heavy with the mastery of their instruments and production. Tunes are filled with hazy keyboards, floating guitar warbles, a gentle sax, and lyrics with a Nilsson-esq cleverness. Fans of Whitney will enjoy the angelic vocals and well, probably everything else. Ah, healing indeed. We’re pleased to announce they’re playing Noise Pop at Bottom of the Hill and before that, they're playing with Real Estate at The Chapel (sold out). Lovely! -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's Presents at The Elbo Room (11.14) Healing Potpourri, April Magazine, & Half Stack

Good things must once again come to an end it seems. It was announced in October that the beloved Elbo Room would be shutting down on January 1, 2019 -- and with it will go the monthly Throwin' Bo's at the Elbo Room showcase. Founder Eli Anaya, however, will continue to book and promote shows under the name Throwin' Bo's Presents, and tonight will be his second to last show ever at The Elbo Room. The bill is stacked with all locals. Healing Potpourri will bring along their classic easy-listening lounge-psych, which should fit right in with the lo-fi jangly rock of April Magazine. Half Stack will be performing live for the first time since the release of their psych-influenced California country LP Quitting Time. Come experience what may be one of your last shows at the Elbo Room, and maybe sing along to a few swan songs while you're there. Prepare by streaming some of our favorite tracks from these artists below. - Lilly Milman
