The Starfolk CD Release Show
The Starfolk CD Release Show in the historic Aster River Room - 8PM doors $10
The Starfolk celebrate the release of their debut self titled LP, joined by critically acclaimed Bay Area sunshine popsters The Orange Peels, and the eclectically jazz infused stylings of Minneapolis' own Jim Ruiz Set.
The Starfolk makes melody-rich chamber pop music that rocks in front man Brian Tighe's quintessentially ethereal way. Tighe fronted indie-pop darlings The Hang Ups in the 90s, co-fronts bittersweet girl-boy poppers The Owls, and plays lead guitar with the belovedly hush-toned Jeremy Messersmith. In The Starfolk, Tighe is on guitar and lead vocals; joined by Allison LaBonne (The Owls, Typsy Panthre) on bass, Jacqueline Ultan (Jelloslave, Saltee) on cello, and Stephen Ittner (The Hang Ups, The Owls) on drums. Everyone sings.
"The present iteration of Tighe's Anglophilia lands The Starfolk somewhere near the land of The Left Banke in the time of The Three O'Clock, and that's the kind of music that gets me all fired up with religious fervour." --The Big Takeover
"The Orange Peels' fifth disc, Sun Moon, overflows with bright, healing alt pop salvos that sound primed for vacation playlists. . ." --The Aquarian
"Jim Ruiz Set creates music that's quite hard to pin down. Cocktail jazz? Art-pop? Sometimes wry, sometimes romantic, never overwrought Mount Curve Avenue is one of the best new, non-rock albums I've heard in quite some time. Immediately appealing on its first listen, the album only improves on subsequent spins." --Musoscribe
