MANUOK + Drew Andrews @ Survey Select

Thursday, August 5 San Diego rock band MANUOK kicked off their west coast tour and new album, “The Old Horse” to the intimate crowd at “Survey Select.” Live music is one of the great dimensions of “Survey Select” and a great dimension of the eight week exhibition.

“Survey Select” and its converted space by Bells and Whistles, presented a wonderful space for the edgy acoustic set of Drew Andrews and his band. Wood beams, concrete walls mixed with the fine art and the local indie music community of Via Satellite, Black Heart Procession, Three Mile Pilot, the Album Leaf and many local musicians created a spirited mix of great music and great friends for a great night.

Drew Andrews kicked off his set with a quality introduction with himself and his acoustic guitar before being joined by his band mates on the second song. MANUOK premiered their new album, “The Old Horse” with a mix of melodic songs and inspired rock and roll. The entire evening surprised visiting guests with an excellent display of mezzo forte (mf = fairly loudly) tunes that promoted instantaneous fanfare.
