Singer songwriter Dietrich Strause and his fantastic band featuring Lyle Brewer, Billy Beard and Zachariah Hickman co-headline The Lizard Lounge tonight with Northampton's creative and super hot buzz band The Sun Parade.

DIETRICH STRAUSE
The songs are a comfortable and careful mix of journeys, clever literary references, and striking imagery. Strause's songs are versatile  personal, but universal enough to hook the masses. If the songs are the backbone, then the musicians Strause assembles are the blood that brings it to life.  Tonight features Lyle Brewer on guitar, Billy Beard on drums and Zachariah Hickman on bass.

"Little Stones to Break the Giant's Heart" reveals his knack for vivid, almost literary lyricism inflected by myth and metaphor. The songs boast a virtuosic command of imagery and wordplay" - WBUR, Boston's NPR News Station

"The melodies are musically intelligent and his words are poetry. He packs a lot of imagery, meaning and emotion into his songs with an efficiency that doesn't feel the least bit forced. The subject matter is largely timeless and ordinary, but there are unexpected turns and instances of subtle wordplay." - Fly Magazine

"Strause's voice is mellifluous; his sound has traces of a young Paul Simon mixed with that Josh Ritter Midwestern wanderlust."  Modern Acoustic

THE SUN PARADE
The Sun Parade works in the great American rock tradition, smuggling rogue love and existential urgency into the room on get-happy grooves. Their new EP Heart's Out delivers on the promise of earlier songwriting with a catalog of love collisions; casual sandwich obsession; and Northern, psychedelic, basement guitar licks. Influences of Afro-pop, Elliott Smith, bluegrass brother harmonies, and four gents from Liverpool.

Based in Northampton MA since 2011, The Sun Parade has been steadily creating a buzz in New England and a grassroots following of fans across the country. In 2012 The Sun Parade released a full length LP "Yossis" and the single "Need You By My Side", a regional hit voted the #1 song by WRSI 93.9 The River. In 2014, they released the joyful pop EP "Heart's Out" and toured the road, including a host of shows with their pals Lake Street Dive. 2015 will find them continuing to spread the good music, touring the Northeast with their soul mates, the accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis band And The Kids, and hitting the recording studio to work on their next LP.
