Murder By Death, Pretty Birds That Kill, Barney McClure Trio, Young Fangs, Squirrel Nut Zippers

Wouldn’t that be a crazy festival?

I just got to see Murder by Death, they played the Pub here in Fairbanks and were amazing. Their bass player makes all kinds of crazy ambient sounds with pedals, their cellist provides amazing counter melodies  and accentuates with pizzicato, their keyboard player wails the organ like its a demonic choir, or picks up the accordion and pleasantly bobs along, and of course their singer can really really sing. Sometimes he seemed to affect an accent that was a little Pirate, a little Sean Connery, and his range and tone remind many listeners of Johnny Cash. Well they are a show not to be missed, here is Adam holding three of my drawings of them.

 

Here is some older drawings that I am now getting around to posting, many more coming soon. Pretty Birds that Kill are playing tonight at the Marlin with the Avery Wolves. its 5$ at the marlin in Fairbanks, for ages 21 and up.
