Eddie Owen Presents: Grassland with Spinster
$15 in advance ($18 day of show)
At live shows, every element of the band is turned up to eleven. This is not a show you’ll see fans chatting through. The crowd yells “woo”s of encouragement. They slap their thighs. They sing along. They dance. The band’s chemistry positively fills the room as they grin their way through the set, extending some of their tracks into improvised jams. Sometimes it looks a little like bluegrass. Sure, it has a banjo, a fiddle and a mandolin on occasion. But there is the electric guitar and a drum kit. It’s jazzy, bluesy, soulful, country and rock. It’s something much more, something modern and amorphous. It’s music that crosses generations, crosses genres, and will cross your soul. It just happens.
Three sisters pouring their heart into a sound that echoes from the land around them-that’s the idea behind Spinster, a trio of musicians who produce a gorgeous and slightly skewed take on harmonized art pop. Their work is restrained but filled with a rambunctious energy that courses through its every muscle and tendon. Their music evokes long evenings on front porches with close friends as both familiar discussions and musical notes drift up into the darkening sky.
