An Evening with Poinsettia
February 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“The endearingly ramshackle riff rock of Raleigh’s Poinsettia vacillates between the tongue-in-cheek slacker blues of “Motel Room” to the supercharged Archers-like nineties indie of “Necklace Vial”, all rendered with the ebullient, off-the-cuff charm of the best sort of low-stakes enterprise.” — Timothy Bracy, INDYweek
“Fitting for a band whose members boast long histories, Poinsettia, which formed in December and played its first show in June, seems to have emerged fully formed. The trio’s murky indie rock cribs from legendary ensembles—Polvo’s lazy-comet dissonance, Lync’s gravity, Consonant’s oblique erudition—for a sound that’s invitingly familiar but distinct.” — Patrick Wall, INDYweek
