The Soft Bombs ~ “Get Up”

The Soft Bombs

 

Based out of Nevada City, the Soft Bombs were founded in 2010, forming their current line up in 2012.

Drivingly danceable rhythm, hard pumping bass, hypnotically addictive blends of psych, kaleidoscopic electrophonic melodies that are at once retro and distinctly forward looking.

The band’s live shows are enhanced by colorful projections and extended dance-improvs that whip the audience into a frenzy.

Events

Ecstatic Dance

Tuesdays 7:30 – 10:00 PM

Ecstatic Dance in its most basic definition is free-form movement /dance inspired by music, allowing bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching! This dance is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation. It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers. It’s about being present with your own energy and discovering your own dance within using this movement and energetic experience to release stuck patterns in your body, emotions, mind and spirit.
