Thursday January 29

CHRIS PUREKA with NICOLE REYNOLDS

Genre: Folk

“Chris Pureka’s sophomore release, Dryland plays like the way she enters a room—with low, deliberate airs, quietly demanding respect. One stark, solo acoustic guitar builds into layered swan songs and raspy serenades that resonate with unassuming depth and candor.”

9pm Cafe Montmartre 608.255.5900 $10 adv &10 dos – 21+

Chris is known for her sensual and emotionally evocative folk style, what other like-minded folk musicians do you wish would make a stop in Madison? Give us your top list by commenting on this blog and we’ll pick a winner at random tomorrow afternoon!

VIC CHESNUTT and ELF POWER with WHATFOR

Genre: Indie Rock

“Elf Power’s tripped-out pop-smarts provide the contradictory musical notions that never allow the album to sway too far in one bleak direction or another: it’s the friction between Chesnutt’s shadowy worldview and the inventive bounce and bray of Elf Power’s joyful chemistry that buoys the album (Dark Developments), provides its freshness, and makes for highly rewarding repeated listens.”

Elf Power- All the World is Waiting

Vic Chesnut- Interview

9:30pm High Noon Saloon 608.268.1122 $10 adv – 18+

-Elf Power will play before Vic and then join Vic on stage as his backing band-

Added Note: Just thought I’d post the video that Jason, our Elf Power/Vic Chestnutt winner linked to (REM- Radio Free Europe 1983). Letterman is actually looking at the vinyl cover to announce the band.

This Week in Shows

Sunday June 22
SMOKING POPES

“With a singer (Josh Caterer) who can make the most melancholic, fretting passage seem like a whistling, carefree, Willie Wonka-kissed day..and a band who is gleeful, but not in a churlish-youthful way, Smoking Popes are one of the most deceptively pleasant-sounding bands going.” -Artistdirect.com
