Formed in 2004, Consider the Source features Gabriel Marin on fretless double-neck guitar, bassist John Ferrara, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Mann. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it’d probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.

Joining CTS on this musical journey will be none other than Opposite Day: a progressive rock band in Austin with a career spanning 10+ albums and numerous accolades since 2001. They made a new EP! It’s called Divide By Nothing with new drummer Eoghan McCloskey (Vex, End of the World Orchestra). The new music builds on bassist Greg Yancey and guitarist Sam Arnold’s 17 years of math-pop public service with a direct and energetic slab of metal, jazz, exotica, funk and punk-infused pop songs about science, science fiction, and facts that should be fiction.
