Folk’s on tap tonight at the Middle East Upstairs – come out and fill your cup with these jangly sounds! Bonfire Blue (Green Line Records) is celebrating the release of its new EP Brothers – it’ll be stuffed with their signature spacey guitars, longing beats, and galactic 80’s synth. The acoustic stylings of Brave Elephant are seasoned with raspy grooves and fierce lyrics crooned in harmony. Licious lives up to its name: dark, velvety, jazzy vocals and mellow backbeats mingle with pensive slide guitar and harp to create something utterly graceful. And Skinny Bones explodes folk with gritty Issac Brock-esque musings, driving guitar and scintillating looped samples of chopsticks and snapping fingers. There’s a whole lotta heart and soul here tonight – treat your ears right and come hear these stellar acoustic titans!
