RYAN FITZSIMMONS with special guests ADAM SWEENEY plus LEVIN SCHWARTZ and THE BIRDSEYE VIEW
LEVIN SCHWARTZ AND THE BIRDSEYE VIEW
$6 advance / $8 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:30 show
A night at the Lizard featuring three terrific singer song writers backed by some stellar musicians. Boston's own Ryan Fitzsimmons, Portland Oregns Adam Sweeney and Northampton's Levin Schwartz and The Birdseye View.
Bringing to the fold his years of electric guitar playing and using innovative alternate tunings, Ryan Fitzsimmons' acoustic world runs the emotional gambit. The lyrics of Ryan's songs range from gentle, poetic details to the in-your-face realism of a bar fight, and his guitar ranges just as far, from starry night to thunderclap.
The music of Adam Sweeney & the Jamboree is like "The Sound of Silence" after the band kicks in: all jangle and harmony, poppy yet literary, brooding and celebratory all at the same time. As a songwriter Sweeney has one foot planted firmly in the folk revivalist tradition, while the other seems to have landed somewhere a bit more edgy, a bit more indie, a bit more electric.
The Birdseye View is a musical project that sounds somewhere in between Andrew Bird - Beriut - Uncle Tupelo and the haunting melodies of traditional American music.
