Beat Circus with La Strada, Matt Rock
Saturday 05.01.2010, Doors at 8:30 PM, Starts at 9:00 PM, $8, 18+
Beat Circus returns to Portland with their new cd, Boy From Black Mountain(Cuneiform), released last fall, the second part of principal member Brian Carpenter's "Weird American Gothic" trilogy and winner of the Independent Music Award for Best Alt/Country Album of 2009. If you caught their mesmerizing performance for the last Gothic Part 1 tour stop at SPACE, you know their music is characterized by its intensity and lush arrangements, and Carpenter's lyrical obsessions with love, death, religion, violence, and American mythologies. Beat Circus will be touring with Brooklyn's beloved La Strada, also releasing a new cd on Ernest Jenning. Rockland-based accordionist Matt Rock returns to SPACE after spending the last two years in Europe touring with the sailing circus troupe Compagnie Aquanaut throughout the Baltic Sea and absorbing the folk music of East European immigrant communities in Berlin.
