... Eclectic Performances
With Special Guests: Rosary Beard and The Firs – Oct. 3 at 8:pm – Tickets $15 at the door/$13 in advance
Katie Hammon’s miraculous, moody combo Bear Grass headlines a cross-pollinating night of live music at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre.
Bear Grass attracts listeners with Hammon’s fascinating, quirky songs. Her sultry pipes may leave them devastated, but the band’s blend of folk, rock and homespun trip-hop soothes their wounds. Drawing on influences like Laura Veirs and Wye Oak, the band’s music is sometimes subtly dark, but always thoroughly captivating and incessantly melodic.
In addition to Hammon, Bear Grass features Ian White, Stephen Stanley, Tommy Krebs and August Sagehorn. Krebs and Sagehorn, former members of Alta Mira, also make up the current rhythm section of The Rattling Baddlies and are featured in the rotating Rebel Darling stable.
That concept of band-sharing will be a key element in Bear Grass’ thoughtful evening of music. Hammon, for example has worked extensively with Rosary Beard’s Matthew Loiacono under his Matthew Carefully guise, just as Loiacono’s six-string partner, Hunter Sagehorn, was also a member of Alta Mira with Krebs and brother August.
The Firs’ Rick Spataro was a member of Hammon’s earlier act, Slender Shoulders, too. And all will find their way into each other’s serpentine sets at the Steamer.
Rosary Beard is not a stranger to the Madison Ave stage. The duo offered a scintillating CD release concert in 2012, their twin acoustic guitars coiling like copulating snakes. Together, Loiacano (a founding member of Kamikaze Hearts) and Sagehorn channel John Fahey, Peter Lang and Daniel Bachman. Beautiful, dusky and tuneful.
GAYLE LIVE will be coming to the Steamer No.10 Theatre for one performance only on Saturday, November 22 at 8:pm. The hit web series GAYLE is returning to our stage.
