NORFOLK, VA- Sidecar Tommy, David Satori and Zoe Jakes make up the creative foundation that is known as Beats Antique– a lush and exotic trip through time and space in music, a journey that melds ancient styles of music with today’s dance/ jam / EDM grooves.
Currently on the Shadowbox tour, this group gives us thought in defining, what is a shadowbox? A shadowbox is where we store treasured and precious trinkets of memories past. Featuring live dance, play with shadows and golden light, lanterns, this night at the NorVa was brought to Norfolk courtesy of Shaka’s in Virginia Beach, a venue that had originally booked Beats Antique on their calendar until it became evident the attendance would be too large for Shaka’s to handle.
Bring whatever kind of freaky you identify with, because all are welcome. Furries, gypsies, hippies and satyrs, oh my! Warmed up by a DJ and drummer from California, the crowd grooved to tracks such as “Killer Bee”, “Beauty Beats” and “Egyptic.” The audience was entralled with every dance, every costume change, and every journey exploring music in ancient time.
