Noble Dust presents: A Twin Peaks Halloween (featuring Aurora Birch and The Horse-Eyed Men)
Join us for a spook-tactular night of haunting harmonies and 90s nostalgia from some of New England's finest folk acts. In the immortal words of Agent Dale Cooper, "I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange." Costumes highly recommended.
Noble Dust - A motley collection of reformed band geeks, Noble Dust fills rooms big and small with their dynamic, lyrically-driven progressive folk pop. Their thoughtfully-crafted backdrops, ethereal vocal harmonies, and intricate horn melodies culminate to create a sound that is at the same time otherworldly and familiar. They have shared the stage with Dietrich Strause & Zachariah Hickman, Session Americana, Adam Ezra, Upstate Rubdown, and The Novel Ideas. The group received an Iguana Music Grant from Club Passim to record their first full length album, due out in late 2017.
Aurora Birch - Chicago native and Berklee College of Music graduate Aurora Birch is a folk-rock singer/songwriter based in the greater Boston area. She specializes in heartfelt, contemplative songwriting, weaving purposefully through the spectrum of nonsense and lucidity, of infinite and infinitesimal, of delicately fanciful and brutally blunt. Commanding tradition while still proving herself an innovator, Aurora’s music sounds like the thesis statement of a fundamental force. Drawing upon old time, folk, and a childhood infused with blues and rock n roll, she crafts complex, gritty guitar arrangements, evincing her background in arranging and orchestration and deftly framing her exfoliating voice.
The Horse-Eyed Men - Noah and Dylan Harley, two brothers who play original disgruntled Americana and country. Raised by musical humans in a former candy store outside of Providence R.I., their music mixes spaghetti-western themes with cabaret, ragtime, and post-partum punk. Grave Country, their latest record, was recorded in Copenhagen on a grant from the Danish Arts Council in the summer of 2013.
