One of the core members of Storming the Beaches with Logos in Hand, Caitlin Brothers steps out to release her debut record as Ppoacher Ppoacher. This special show at Form & Concept will be an album release party for Ppoacher Ppoacher & The Concrete Dragonfly (released via Matron Records). Performing mostly on harp or banjo, Ppoacher Ppoacher’s sound comes somewhere between Joanna Newsom and Karen Dalton, so quite excellent.
On their latest album, Somersault, Brooklyn band Beach Fossils has seemingly traded in their energetic lo-fi indie rock for something closer to 80s sophisti-pop. It’s a move that may estrange some fans, but seems like the right move for the band to keep things fresh.
Montreal’s She-Devils recently released their debut album via Secretly Canadian. It’s a delicious mix of 60s girl group pop, psychedelia and the Smiths.
Formerly two-thirds of the wonderful, under-appreciated Depreciation Guild, identical twins Christoph and Anton Hochheim stepped out to form Ablebody. Their 2016 debut album Adult Contemporaries proved that they could make lush dream pop on their own.
As though the organizers behind Colorado Goth Fest could smell the impending death of the Santa Fe venue, the fest was booked at the Skylight months before they announced they’d be closing. Now one of the last events remaining on the venue’s calendar, Goth Fest promises to deliver at least one final memorable night at the club. I just hope the sun goes down before the start. Otherwise that sun soaked skylight will make things awkward for folks who heavily prefer the dark.
Leo Kottke is simply one of the most mesmerizing players to ever pick up a guitar. Just watch him play “Vaseline Machine Gun” and try to not have your mind blown.
Kottke shares the stage with songwriter John Gorka,an accomplished storyteller who has been going strong since the 80s.
