A Classic Education were in the States and played JB’s in Philly on March 30th.  The 5 piece from Bologna, Italy brings an amazingly full live sound stemming from two guitars, a bass, drums and keys.  Comprised of Jonathan, Luca, Paul, Giulia, and Federico the band has an indie rock feel with a touch of electronica – albeit a very small touch.  There are also hints of garage rock in there.  It is quite a nice package.  The band represents a full ensemble effort fronted by Jonathan Clancyness of the solo project, His Clancyness.   We loved his work with that and were excited to see his work manifested live with a full backing band.  A let down it was not.

Currently on the Lefse record label, A Classic Education has two EPs and a Long Play out.  The LP was a 2011 release and many of the songs played came off this album.  Thoroughly an enjoyable set, we have some video for you below to check out:
