Hail Cassius Neptune 9/8 at Pisgah Brewing

hail cassius neptune

Hail Cassius Neptune is a "psychedelic soul" powerhouse that fuses art rock with R&B into a unique sound channeling Erykah Badu and Hiatus Kaiyote. Fronted by Kylie Jo and Wilson Stern, their music weaves a danceable tapestry for the mind, body & soul. The band has been compared to acts across the gamut from The Mars Volta and Primus to Frank Zappa and D'Angelo. Kylie Jo's powerful vocals bring together Lauryn Hill's sense of soul with Fiona Apple's sense of humor.  As a Southeast band on the rise, H!CN has shared the stage with Papadosio, Beats Antique, and Consider the Source.
