Retroglyphs with Night Protocol
and special guests
Saturday, May 26, 2018
RETROGLYPHS is the 80s-inspired synthwave project led by producers Frank Cervantes and Josh Dowiak. The duo’s longstanding musical partnership (which has included bands such as The Once Was) yielded several original songs with 80s vibes in late 2016, receiving buzz from a growing retrowave community via Soundcloud and NewRetroWave’s “WeRuleNation” YouTube playlist.
Remixes from producers in the Netherlands (Jowie Schulner), Poland (UNITRA), and Sweden (Damokles) soon followed, taking the project to new heights within the retro scene worldwide. In 2017, the duo added multi-instrumentalists Matthew Wood (keyboards) and Joshua Holland (drums/guitar) to fill out a live lineup that has since played dozens of shows at a variety of venues, including Philly’s Penn’s Landing River Stage, Ortlieb’s, Kung Fu Necktie, The Barbary, and events in DC and NY.
Since releasing their self-titled debut album in May, the band has twice been selected as 88.5 WXPN’s Philly Local Pick by Helen Leicht, and continues to garner praise from blogs, radio stations, and fans from around the globe. The band is releasing an EP of 7 new songs in May of 2018, backed by NJ label Pyrrhic Victory Recordings.
