Fair Oaks and The Starfolk at The Cake Shop
Amazing Twin City bands Fair Oaks (Andy Ulseth) & The Starfolk (Brian Tighe - The Hang Ups) perform in the intimate space of The Cake Shop in Minneapolis.

About Fair Oaks:

Formed in two cities founded on the intrinsic turns and tails of one of Earth's longest waterways, FAIR OAKS from Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota, has made an album that aims to shine a solar-hued spotlight on nature in the urban environment.

The group's debut full length "THIS IS THE RIVER" is bookended with a basket's worth of texturally and lyrically dense fuzzy pop songs that guard the album's centerpiece three-part titular track. Like spilt oil paints, "THIS IS THE RIVER" is a sprawling and polychromatic piece that at times gallops and at others whirs south along the banks of the Mighty Mississippi.

Made up of singer-songwriter ANDY ULSETH, multi-instrumentalists ERIC CARLSON and MOLLY MANNING, as well as bassist MITCH SCHUMER and percussionist MATTHEW LEONARD, FAIR OAKS has crafted an enthralling and elegant debut release that will reward multiple listens. http://www.fairoaksband.com/

About The Starfolk:

The Starfolk makes melody-rich chamber pop music that rocks in front man Brian Tighe's quintessentially ethereal way.  Tighe fronted power-pop darlings The Hang Ups in the 90's, co-fronts bittersweet girl-boy poppers The Owls, and plays lead guitar with the belovedly hush-toned Jeremy Messersmith.
"Tighe still boasts that distinctively airy tenor and a penchant for setting beautiful vocal melodies atop unusual chord progressions  recently described with rightful awe by Messersmith as "like doing ballet in a minefield." In fact, The Starfolk achieve a far broader sound than that of their frontman's power-pop past."Rob Van Alstyne, City Pages.

In The Starfolk, Tighe is  joined by Allison LaBonne (The Owls, Typsy Panthre) on bass, Jacqueline Ultan (Jelloslave, Saltee) on cello, and Stephen Ittner (The Hang Ups, The Owls) on drums.   Their debut full length is out now on Korda Records. http://www.thestarfolk.com/
