Big Takeover plays Falcon Underground

One of the Hudson Valley’s leading musical exports, the horn-powered global pop sensation the Big Takeover, plays a local show in the intimate downstairs space of the Falcon Underground on Saturday, June 29, fresh off another local appearance of sorts: a featured spot at Mountain Jam at Bethel Woods. The band’s latest single is a cover of Sophia George’s 1985 dancehall hit “Girlie Girlie.” Recorded as part of a UK compilation album containing 40 covers of classic Trojan Records hits from artists across the world, it was produced by Manuel Quintana (Rachel Yamagata, Robbie Dupree) and Rob Kissner and mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Danny Blume. There is no cover charge at the Falcon, but generous direct-from-audience donation is what keeps the good times rolling at Tony Falco’s world-famous music and art multiplex.
