Share this event:

The Suitcase Junket, aka Matt Lorenz, is a one-man-band. But, here's the thing--at the end of the night you're not going to go home feeling like you saw some cool schtick. In the words of the Boston Globe, "The songs are what you remember."
Playing up to four instruments at once, and alternating conventional singing with throat singing (!), Lorenz utterly transcends the mechanical minutiae. Close your eyes and you'll hear a garage rock band playing a resurrected dumpster guitar, an old suitcase, a gas-can-baby-shoe  foot drum, a cookpot-soupcan tambourine, a circular-saw-blade bell, and a box of bones.  Lorenz employs his rig in the service of songs that are rootsy, melodic, full of meaning--confronting with playfulness and handcraft a world that could so easily buckle under its burden of technology and ambition.
