Meniskus trio brings unique dynamic to Snake

summit daily news

Special to the DailyMeniskus plays at the Snake River Saloon in Keystone Friday and Saturday.

Where’d the name come from? “One day Bardusco (guitarist) and I were admiring the fact that the margaritas we’d ordered were so full that the liquid was actually higher than the sides of the glass. One of us remembered the term from high school chemistry. Contrary to popular belief in ski country, it has nothing to do with your knee.” -Chris Wright, drummer

Home base: Denver, CO

Who are you? The unique dynamic of the three-piece band comprises a violin, a nylon-stringed guitar and some seriously hard driving percussion. Meniskus releases its new single “The Partyer” Thursday night at The Fox Theatre in Boulder, and lead singer Eric Ostberg says they’re “looking forward to bringing ‘The Partyer’ out to play at The Snake; it’s a dancing-mandatory song, and the floor is always packed with bodies at The Snake!”

If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? “A fan who’s a psychiatrist said to me at a show recently that Meniskus was the best antidepressant around.” -Bryan Bardusco, guitar

Why do people love ya? “Nobody looks at this instrumentation and expects what they hear. No way can this much sound come out of three guys. Next thing you know, you’re on the dance floor, possibly making out with a stranger.” -Eric Singer, manager

How do you keep it fresh? “We don’t really practice, so our time to write new songs is on stage. That makes every show unique; we jam out to something and the fans get to see a song evolve as it’s created.” -Chris Wright
