$12 adv / $15 dos / 21+
To be familiar with Brainstory is to know their Rialto, CA, roots, the positivity that laces each of their songs, and then the maverick-musicianship-meets-real-friendship that expertly holds it all together.
If you’re new to Brainstory, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t quite believe the music they make-from sweet soul slowies to psyche rock-tinted bangers to ballads with a nod to a smooth jazzy R&B of the 70s-is the product of only three people.
Brainstory is the brothers Kevin and Tony Martin (on guitar/vocals and bass, respectfully) and Eric Hagstrom (drums)-but all three of these raw, sensitive, California dudes are family.
