SHOW CANCELED - Robert Francis at the 'Dad Lounge


In the summer of 2020 Robert Francis went camping in Idahos Sawtooth Mountains. I rented a U-Haul and slept in the cargo hold. The goal was to get a good look at comet Neowise, Francis said. One night the unexplainable occurred, "a strange burst of light fell out of the stratosphere, shape-shifting, almost dancing; it lasted nearly ten minutes before disappearing behind the mountains." A few days later, Francis arrived home in Los Angeles and sat down at the sewing table in his kitchen. He wrote the entire new album, Big UFO, in three days. Look at the sky long enough and youre bound to see something strange. The unknown makes you feel like a kid again. Theres an infinite vastness out there we know nothing about. I like to think thats where these songs come from, he said.

Big UFO is Francis tenth studio album and his most cohesive to date. His band The End Times, Cori Elliott (vocals), Shane Smith (bass), Drew Philips (guitar) and Brad Cummings (drums), along with Engineer / Mixer, Eric Fuller, traveled to Ridgefield, Washington, a small town on the Columbia River and recorded everything live (including vocals) inside a tin barn that belonged to Bo Smith (Shanes dad), a Vietnam War veteran and singer / songwriter in his own right. Francis recalls the frigid recording set-up and taxing process, It was 35 degrees and raining. If you listen closely - you can hear propane heaters on each track and they sound like tape hiss. We had to nail plastic panels to the ceiling to redirect the rain from short-circuiting our amps. The fridge was stocked with Rainer beer. The result is a lush, woodsy sound reminiscent of a fireside chat or living room jam; think Dylans Nashville Skyline or Townes Van Zandts Delta Momma Blues.
