8 DOORS / 8:30 MUSIC
OCTOBER 26th .
Lonesome Leash is the solo project of Walt McClements, an accordionist and multi-instrumentalist known for his previous work in Dark Dark Dark, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship?. Using a sparse palette of accordion, drums and voice, McClements crafts stark yet complex songs, nervous and triumphant hymns to the restless. Despite being anchored by the often anachronistic accordion, the music ends up having less to do with contemporary purveyors of old world idioms, and more to do with an alternate history—one where angular accordion lines take prominence over the guitar in a nervy and strangely cinematic post-punk tradition.
LORI GOLDSTON & JORDAN O’ JORDAN
United by a mutual love of very old folk songs, local favorites Lori Goldston and Jordan O’ Jordan perform synesthetic versions of traditional British and Appalachian ballads, trying to conjure not only the stories but the scent, feel and taste of the places that birthed the music. Goldston is an accomplished cellist known for her work with Earth, Nirvana, Mirah, David Byrne, Jherek Bischoff, Cat Power and many more. O’ Jordan is a captivating songwriter and storyteller who has a way of subtly conjuring magic on stage.
AMETHYST de WOLFE
Amethyst de Wolfe draws upon windswept prairie landscapes, bittersweet heartbreak and the rawness of grief to create songs that have been described as vulnerable, poignant and haunting.
