Grand Point North After Party with Sweet Crude

When: Sat., Sept. 16, 9:30 p.m. 2017

New Orleans-based sextet Sweet Crude sing epic anthems in Cajun French and English — and often flit from one language to the other within the same song. The bilingual indie-pop band’s name is oxymoronic, which plays into dalliances with duality: Along with languages, they blend chaos and orderly composition. With no guitars to fill and smooth out the sound, the band relies heavily on rhythmic sounds, including Louisiana’s particular French dialect. As cofounder Sam Craft explained to, “Louisiana French eliminates some syllables, and [we’re] able to use it percussively and play with the use of consonants and syllables.” Grand Point North presents an after party with Sweet Crude on Saturday, September 16, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

Price: $8/10
