ALEX GOLDFARB ALBUM RELEASE + KADOKA + LITTLE WHALE
$6 IN ADVANCE / $8 AT THE DOOR
8PM DOORS / 8:30PM SHOWTIME
Alex Goldfarb will be performing with local musicians Jim Anton, Greg Schutte, and Park Evans, whom he worked with on his third full release, Songs Against the Fray. The work hovers around his lyrical- and vocal-driven tunes, which are centered on the theme of cultivating positivity in perilous times. Ranging from world infused rhythms to alt-country ballads, the full band endeavor is a welcomed approach to his singer-songwriter roots.
Based in Minneapolis, Alex Goldfarb is cut from the same singer/songwriter cloth as Tim Buckley, Greg Brown, and Rickie Lee Jones. After causing a stir with the underground folk scene with a self-titled debut cassette, Goldfarb was signed by fellow singer/songwriter Forest Sun's indie label, Painted Sun, which issued Goldfarb's sophomore effort, Magnifying Glass, in June of 2000. Also produced by Sun, Magnifying Glass was recorded in a secluded section of Northern California, and proves to be a fine showcase for Goldfarb's deeply effective vocals, life-examining lyrics, and percussive guitar style, as the album features accompaniment by other instruments -- mandolin, Rhodes piano, and percussion (all of which were manned by Sun). Goldfarb's live show is based on spontaneity (and often fueled by audience participation), as he performs solo and with others almost equally, on the stages of cabarets and night clubs in Minneapolis, as well as an appearance at the 2000 Winnipeg Folk Festival.
Kadoka is the new folk music project by Christopher M. Keller, known by rap fans as Kristoff Krane. Embracing the natural cycles during a time of grieving, Kadoka's debut, Moon Goddess, reveals fragility in being vulnerable and strength in honoring the feminine.
Little Whale is the latest project by Lauren Henley, a singer-songwriter based out of Minneapolis. Through guitar and voice, Little Whale seeks to use metaphor and melodic dreamscapes as an expression of personal collective experience.
