From the Pages of JUMP: Eric Slick performing Primal Essence at PhilaMOCA
Here at The Key we’re big fans of JUMP Magazine and their extensive coverage of the broad-reaching Philly music scene – pop to punk, jazz to jam band, and whatever else you can think of. Beginning this week, we’ll regularly highlight some of the features from the pages of JUMP here on The Key, starting with their coverage of our Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA last night. Eric Slick played an impressive live score to his film Primal Essence, JUMP editor and publisher G.W. Miller III was there with his camera, and this is what he had to say:
Dr. Dog drummer Eric Slick, who also drums for Norwegian Arms, Ape School and others, performed a solo show set to a video he produced (with the help of his Norwegian Arms bandmate Brendan Mulvihill and friend Andy Molholt). The video, titled Primal Essence, featured Slick in a dream sequence – in which he had a romantic liaison with a slice of pizza.
He drummed live on stage in collaboration with his on screen character. It was surreal and amazing.
The crowd alone was a who’s who of the Philly music scene. Among those in attendance were Adam Granduciel from The War on Drugs, Frances Quinlan from Hop Along, Dominic Angelella from DRGN KING, Mike Sneeringer from Purling Hiss and Scott McMicken from Dr. Dog.
