Stacked Like Pancakes, a Baltimore-based rock band on the verge of a big breakout, will be headlining a show at the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill on April 24.

The band has two albums under their belts (2011’s We’re Not Insane and 2015’s This Is Usand their sound is evolving from their heavily ska-influenced debut album. Their horns are central to their live shows, but the band prefers to be called “brass-rock”, because their sound is more than just ska. Their songs delve into deep issues with a fuller, more complex sound while still retaining the fun upbeat atmosphere that is associated with the ska sound.

One just has to listen to their most recent material (the band just released the fan-funded “Hollow”)  to hear the difference and realize that this band is on the verge on having a huge impact on the music scene. The composition has evolved to the point that the band decided it was time to bring in a producer that could take them there.

In comes Matt Squire, who has worked with such notable acts like P!nk, Demi Levato, Selena Gomez, and Panic! At The Disco, to take on the production duties. With “Hollow” the band appears to have found that unique sound that incorporates rock (with a noticeable influence of Jack White), blues, pop while still bringing in the horns to give the song that special flavor.

Couple that with the band’s upbeat and wild live shows and this band is a certainly an act to keep an eye on. Luckily, Saint Louis fans can catch them on April 24 at the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill in the Loop. Tickets are still available, are only $12, and can be purchased HERE.

Additionally, “Hollow” marks the official launch of the band’s third record, Strange Creatures, which they will be attempting to fund entirely on Kickstarter. The campaign will run through the end of April, during which time they will be attempting to raise $100,000 for the recording, production, and distribution of the record.
