You know how we do!
Soul Sides has three pairs of tickets to give away. If you slept on the previous two Timeless shows…you wack! Don’t make it a hat trick and miss out on Email us with the subject line “Verocai giveaway”. Make sure to include your full name.
I confess, I don’t know a ton about Verocai except that I always associate him, rightly or wrongly, with Brazil’s Tropicalia movement of the late 1960s which was both an intense period of both cultural and political collisions and musical evolution (check out Brutality Garden if you’re really interested).
Verocai’s 1972 album on Continental is a straight up Brazilian holy grail LP and personally, if you listen to how intricate his arrangements are, how brilliant his fusions of Brazilian and American styles come together here, you can understand why people jones for this album so badly.
And he’s going to be playing in LA with a 30 piece orchestra? No brainer.
Arthur Verocai: Caboclo
