Genre, Now Two Guys and a Laptop, Gears Up For Its First Show In Two Years Tonight

Taking two years off from live shows is a pretty ballsy move, but local synth rockers Genre took the time off to reinvent themselves. The band shrunk from a four piece to two guys (Zac Markey, guitars/vocals and Corey Gomez, keyboards and vocals) and a keyboard. Both musicians agree that halving the number of people in Genre has streamlined the band's songwriting process.

Genre makes its grand return at Rogue Bar tonight, armed with a few new songs and retooled versions of old songs. Check out how Genre intends to sound like Prince after the jump.
