The Hecks return to the spotlight on April 28 for a rousing night of melodramatic short form popular song. Themes include boundless love, shame, death, and hell. Dramma giocoso, blood on the microphone.
Formed in Chicago by partners Josh Condon and Eliza Weber, Glyders make maximal minimal rock and roll with nocturnal mystery pulsing in the mix, cutting above rigorous roadhouse fare with sounds that twist and grind on their classic inspirations. Joined by Joe Seger on drums, Glyders’ high lonesome way is mellow but nervy, hip-shaking and deep – a multicolored trip to the ongoing beat of American weirdness. Their debut LP “Maria’s Hunt” is out now on Country Thyme/Drag City.
Caroline Campbell is returning to the stage with a completely new and transformed electronic project. Joined by Benjamin Taylor and Alex Taylor, the trio present a sound that is emboldened by dark and pulsating house rhythms, synth-opera, and stories from the underworld.
