80s-inspired synthpop


Doors: 7:30 PM   Show: 8:00 PM

Shannon and Jamie are bringing their "synthpop + joy" extravaganza to Yoshi's for their Bay Area debut!

"Combining elements of concerts, TED Talks and visual art, the show places the album's 1980s-inspired synthpop numbers in the context of what inspired them: climate change, rising fascism, and Curtis's anxiety about — and hope for — the future." — Emily Hamilton, Seven Days VT

About the show:

How will empathetic people survive the troubles of this time? How do we rescue our overburdened spirits from overlapping disasters such as rising fascism and climate collapse? And from where can we summon the power to heal ourselves, our communities, and the planet?

These are the animating questions behind Shannon Curtis’s new album and show Good to Me — a song journey that took Curtis through a practice of identifying failed coping mechanisms (“From the Inside Out”), coming to terms with radical acceptance (“Be With What Is”), learning to trust her inner truth (“The Silent Sea”), and reconnecting to her serenity and power (“I Am”) — even as the world continued to burn.

More info and trailers:

"How do you stare down dark times? For Shannon Curtis, the answer was making a shimmering 80s-inspired synthpop album about the relentless, interwoven, swirling chaos we’ve made of the world." — John O'Neil, The Record Exchange Boise

"Shannon Curtis's 'Good to Me,' an album that began as a pandemic-era healing journal and ended up as a synthpop suite, deserves to be a hit in this year of Kate Bush.” — Matty Karas, Music REDEF
