Verisimilitude: Teen marvels ditch angst for musical aptitude

Feliza, Zach, and Dakota: Verisimilitude in action.


A Verisimilitude show is like sitting in on a low-key band practice. Somewhat awkward and pleasantly unrefined, each 30-minute set boasting personality and charismatic dance moves.

Who
Zach Applebaum, 16 (guitar)
Dakota Applebaum, 19
(bass, synth)
Feliza Salazar, 19 (drums)

What
An instrumental trio since 2011, Verisimilitude formed in 2006 and since have been experimenting with a mix of dizzying bass lines, intricate drum progressions, and melodic guitar, all capped by a groovy synthesizer. Influenced by bands like The Octopus Project, Explosions in the Sky, and El Ten Eleven, their progressive sound is unaffected by the nauseating commercial epidemic that young bands frequently succumb to.

When/Where
They've secured a recurrent Saturday spot at Fusion House Café. After every show, fans are able to snag a T-shirt and a three-song EP for $11.

Why
"Our dad used to be in a band and they would have band practice every Sunday at my house, so I grew up with live music and a lot of equipment around. We've been jamming ever since I was in second grade and [Feliza and Dakota] were in fifth grade." — Zach

"We're kind of a minimalist band." — Dakota

"We just want you to hear us, enjoy us, talk about us after you leave … and like us on Facebook." — Feliza C
