Kacy & Clayton with special guest The Deep Dark Woods, plus Spokane favorite Dario Ré, live at the Big Dipper, Tuesday, November 13th. Kacy & Clayton are amazing Folk musicians from Canada. $8 All Ages. Bar for 21+ Tickets on sale at kyrs.org
Sponsored by SNAP (Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners) and The Spokane Fall Folk Festival.
On tour opening for The Decemberists! Kacy & Clayton’s new album was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and recorded at the band’s Chicago studio (The Loft), by Tom Schick, The Siren’s Song follows Kacy & Clayton’s 2016 record Strange Country. It’s the first album on which Anderson and duo partner Clayton Linthicum — second cousins who grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada — have incorporated electric full-band arrangements; they’re joined for the project by drummer / percussionist Mike Silverman and bassist Shuyler Jansen.
The Deep Dark Woods: Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of Yarrow. A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden.
The Deep Dark Woods’ newest album was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. In Yarrow, the Deep Dark Woods are reimagined by leadman Ryan Boldt, and accompanied by the same band that crafted prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound” (Paste) for flannelites. For nearly ten years they developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards.
Now wrest out of the woods, their outlook is decidedly more macabre, tapping into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time. With Appalachian soil under his fingernails, Boldt writes in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison.
In Yarrow, there’s a juicy unease to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin’ jammy vibe there’s a darker, stranger tenor that sides with those modern mystics whose music exists in the creepier, freakier corners of existence.
The Deep Dark Woods’ “Yarrow” was released on Six Shooter Records on October 27, 2017.
Dario Ré released his debut album, Aspen Artichoke, with an ensemble last year launching him and his collaborators into a consistent regional tour. A Spokane born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he uses his impassioned poetics to blend indie folk into a french gipsy fusion. He will be joined by Andie Daisley on vocals and Michael Starry on upright bass.

DBST is an impassioned and energetic neo-soul band formed in Olympia, Washington with wild electronic leanings- yet they maintain the full interplay and instrumentation of a traditional band. Centered around the fluid yet commanding vocals of song-writer and front-man Sam Pohl, the band works to construct an encapsulating and textured aura of sound; seeking to connect and resonate with every listener in the audience. The band formed loosely in 2011, cutting their teeth in small clubs in their home town and released their first full length album, Kamaliens, in 2014. After many forms and iterations, the band truly discovered their voice in 2016, when they decided to bring their act to larger venues and wider audiences. The members of DBST come from varied musical backgrounds and disciplines, lending to a unique and often category defying sound, but their common ground is what really shines through- they want to make music that MOVES people.

Armed with old bastardized mid-century guitars, hand-me-down fiddles and banjos, home-made contraptions with just enough tension on a string to be considered an instrument and any random percussive item he can get his hands or feet on, Lincoln Durham is a Southern-Gothic Psycho-Blues Revival-Punk One-Man-Band with a heavy amped edge, preaching the gospel of some new kind of depraved music. With driving guttural beats backboning various growling stringed instruments Lincoln gives birth to a sound that transcends genres with his dark, poetic and raw writing style telling tales that E.A. Poe would have been proud of.
Lincolns musical odyssey began when his grandpa, Charlie, and dad, Ed, put a fiddle in his hands at age 4. He would grow into an accomplished fiddle player winning the Youth Fiddle Championship at age 10. Lincoln afterward followed the path so many musicians have, finding his vice in the seductive, siren-like callings of the electric guitar. Or, in Lincolns case, the acoustic slide guitar with gnarly pickups haphazardly screwed into it.
Lincolns true biography is in his live show. The passion in his sweat drenched, electrifyingly mesmerizing one-man-band show draws you in to feel every scar and drop of blood in his painfully intimate lyrics. It takes something beautifully off to get on stage with just hands and feet for a band, driven by a howling voice, and morbidly preach a music that harkens back to the old blues masters, Son House and Fred McDowell, infused with the edge and angst of Punk and darkened from the bad influences of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

Best known for his roles on Adult Swim's Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.
On stage, David unleashes his most unbridled, maniacally passionate self, complete with his decrepit ventriloquist puppets, stories of alien encounters, and heartily belted songs about space, locomotives and unrequited love. Every show is as different and unpredictable as David is himself, and can veer from hilarity in one moment to awkward confusion in the next. In any case, a truly unique and mind-bending experience is guaranteed. August’s west coast US tour has Liebe Hart backed by a rollicking space-rock trio led by lauded indie rocker Mo Troper, co-founder of Portland OR-based Good Cheer Records.
