Amoeba Home Grown & ASUC Present the 2013 Battle of the Bears Champions: The Opulent
Amoeba Berkeley - March 14th @ 6:00pm
Amoeba Home Grown & ASUC present the 2013 Battle of the Bears champions, The Opulent!
The Opulent began with a solo EP written and recorded by Yoshi Moriyama with the help of various friends. While at UC Berkeley, Yoshi joined with Angela Lee (cello), Cecilia Ojcius (saxophone and keyboard), and Brandon Mashund (drums), and the group began playing small shows. Soon bassist Danny McCarty moved to the Bay Area to join the band. While still a new band, they have quickly become known for an aesthetic based on simple melodies accompanied with profoundly layered harmonies.
