Two amazing indie folk acts blaze into the Lizard Lounge tonight! The foot-stomping' gutter folk of Driftwood Soldier and the award winning lyric driven folk rock of singer-songwriter Julia Mark.
Driftwood Soldier isnt your average mandolin-bass foot-stomping gutter-folk duo.
Growling and crooning, muttering about lost love, brimstone, and the glorious view from the underside of a rusty world-order, Owen holds the rhythm on mandolin and foot percussion. Bobby takes the opportunity to stretch bass notes into lyrical vines that vibrate somewhere north of your liver and flower unexpectedly at night.

The endearing warmth and charm of Julia Mark's music and voice has quickly made her a favorite in the Boston music scene. As a singer-songwriter and pianist, she creates lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes, and palindromes. With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocal of Suzanne Vega, Julia is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene. Julia Mark was a 2016 Iguana Music Fund grantee, spurring the creation of her first full-length album, Gemini" (January 2018).
