The Limes will be opening up for the pop sensation Madaila on FRIDAY OCT 30, 6:30 PM. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and will support The Limes in their efforts to produce an album and go on a spring tour to NYC!
Pop juggernaut Madaila's debut record, “The Dance”, is upbeat, synth-heavy, and catchy. Vocal skill and range are immediately apparent. But in the tradition of Prince and more recently Frank Ocean, there is an ornateness and occasional darkness to this pop music that exposes Madaila's complexity and musicianship. Tight arrangements and multi-instrumental performances showcase musical minds at work.
Tight spandex and technicolor attire showcase a different side. When playing live, both powerful and playful elements of Madaila are present as the five-piece finds the deeper possibilities within their concise recorded material. On stage, spontaneous expression and contagious melody coexist.
Madaila has shared the stage with Mac DeMarco, Delicate Steve, Valerie June, Rubblebucket; and played at festivals such Frendly Gathering, Waking Windows, & Burlington Discover Jazz. Madaila is part of Future Fields, an artist-run musical creation & amplification group based in Burlington, Vermont that includes Maryse Smith, Villanelles, & The Precept.
