RVA Mag includes England in 1819’s upcoming show at Gallery 5 in this week’s Shows You Must See! Here’s a preview:
England In 1819 are an unusual phenomenon in the modern world of pop music–an electronic duo made up of former classical musicians and composers who originally began working with an extensive backing band featuring oboe, french horn, and other traditionally symphonic instruments. The fact that these guys are now mostly working with keyboards and drum machines probably indicates that their original concept was too unwieldy for touring life, but you have to give them credit for seeing their unique vision through in some fashion. Regardless of what instruments they use to carry it off, you can expect their show at Gallery 5 to be full of sweeping, grandiose pop gestures that live up to the epic nature of their music. The results promise to provide a sublime experience for all in attendance.
