23 JANUARY AT 7PM
Two US singer/songwriters that find heartbreaking beauty in unlikely, often contradictory places. When singer/songwriter Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie) lost his wife, artist Geneviève Castrée, to cancer, he poured his grief into the beautiful and devastating A Crow Looked At Me.
With hushed vocals and gently picked guitars, his songs offer a painfully raw and diary-like exploration of what it means to keep living after such a tragedy.
Elverum is joined by NYC’s Julie Byrne, whose late-night fingerpicked folk music evokes a similar intimacy and power, showcased in the haunting melodies and personal lyrics of her acclaimed 2017 album Not Even Happiness.
Together, they offer an evening of minimalist, melancholic beauty.
“For an album so firmly anchored by death, A Crow Looked At Me is suffused with life” Pitchfork
