Friday night live at Transistor: Silvergirl, Brash Flair and Brice Woodall. Sound by Jon Monteverde.
Together as Brash Flair, Joshua Wentz and Kristin Johnston blend their singular experiences into a partnership that has its roots in trip hop, downtempo electronica and vocal house. Their music combines relatable melodies and disparate textures, while not adhering to standard pop song structures.

Alternately spectral and warm-blooded, the live incarnation of songwriter/beatmaker Brice Woodall's work bridges the organic and the synthetic, the embodied and the digital. Brice draws upon shortwave radio, film samples, and a growing arsenal of analog toys to cut an oblique face on synth-pop. His electro-acoustic arrangements build walls only to cut them down, puncturing thick atmospherics with clean guitar, beats and keys. This is the sound of the ghost in the wires, a weapon against the cynicism and neurosis that permeates our increasingly digital world.
Brice describes his live set as "lo-fi folktronica" with "beats, keys, white noise."
