Members of moe., Lotus, and Percy Hill have announced a new musical collaboration, Blue Star Radiation. The quartet will make its debut on November 18th in Syracuse, NY.
The Blue Star Radiation lineup consists of moe. bandmates Rob Derhak (bass) and Vinnie Amico (drums) alongside Lotus’ Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Percy Hill keyboardist Nate Wilson (formerly of Assembly of Dust). This marks the latest musical endeavor for Palmieri, who is set to make his stage debut with Lotus on Thursday at the Ardmore Music Hall in Pennsylvania. Palmieri was called up from Connecticut staple Kung Fu last month to replace founding Lotus guitarist Mike Rempel, who has left the music business to focus on a career in wellness.
The new supergroup has a brief run of shows planned beginning on November 18th at the Wescott Theatre in Syracuse, NY. BSR will perform three more concerts, one at Putnam Place in Saratoga Springs, NY (11/19); another at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT (11/20); and finally Oxbow Brewery in Portland, ME (11/21). Per a press release, “the shows will feature songs from all of the members’ primary projects in addition to original compositions and select covers.”
Tickets for the Blue Star Radiation shows are on sale now through the individual venue websites.
