Dinosoul, from Pittsburgh, was a huge hit when they performed at our place back in the spring, we are beyond excited to have them back again. Likewise for Hulqamaniac, a local favorite. Come catch this very special double bill.
Dinosoul is an American dark pop, indie rock band formed by partners Donny Donovan (vocals, guitar) and Carolyn Hilliard (vocals, keyboards) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2016. Steven Hilliard, Carolyn’s brother, joined shortly after as the lead guitarist and Glenn Durham finalized the group on drums. In 2018, Mike Zelenka joined as the bassist.
inosoul's sound is a merge of electronic drum hip-hop/metal beats with indie-pop new wave guitar rhythms. It is then layered with ambient synth and keyboard piano melodies, topped off with intricate guitar leads and two female vocalists - one lower and raspy, and the other angelic and airy. The raw, haunting vocals of Donny coupled with Carolyn's angelic harmonies make for an experience that is guaranteed to stay with you.
Hulqamaniac, Hailing from Cobra Island, Tomax and Xamot combine 90’s post punk and 80’s new wave into inoffensive danceable tunes.
