Brain Straw (US)
Imagine an urgent Leonard Cohen armed only with whisky and a blown tube amplifier, lost in the sprawling Midwest, driving his solitary heart toward an uncertain future. Exploding the usually hidden place between love and sadness, where melody and hope tiptoe warily. As though climbing the arching tree to recover the fallen bird’s nest… Brian Straw grew up in Richmond, Indiana, an idle town off I-70 that first set the tone for the soundtrack Straw carried with him. Songs began to pour out of him there and the town’s windows cracked open as the hearts and ears that Straw implored began to listen. Garnering a base of supporters and critical praise along the way, Straw has toured nationally and in Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Calexico, the Black Heart Procession, Andrew Bird and Devendra Banhart.

Protestant Work Ethic (AT)
Protestant Work Ethic – das sind mal leise, mal lautere Lieder. Größtenteils wird versucht, diese möglichst schnörkellos zu halten und auf den (einen, mehrere?) Punkt(e) zu bringen (wenn es sowas in der Musik gibt), die Stimmung nicht durch zuviel Überlegen zu verwischen – die deswegen schon meist eher emotional ist. Gespielt diesmal von Simon Usaty (Gitarre/Banjo/Gesang), Stephan Bauch (Kontrabass) und Christian Mayer (E-Gitarre). Mensch könnte es Folk- oder Popmusik nennen… Nun, ein wenig Blues gibts auch.

Beginn: 21h (punktlich!)
