Slowriter @ The Drunken Unicorn
Also Appearing: Eros and the Eschaton, Minor Miracles and Acapoco
9pm | Free | 21+
In 2009 Bryan Taylor recorded his first album as Slowriter, “What Keeps Me Sane.” The songs were infectiously catchy and strikingly quirky. Taylor quickly gained praises for his idiosyncratic melding of acoustic guitars and billowing soundscapes. By 2011 he released a self-titled follow up EP. Hip hop’s all-devouring sonics had weaved their way into the program beats, creating a barrier of harmony that quelled the psychedelic wall that could have easily emerged in the most grandiose songs.
The Maine and Anberlin @ Masquerade (Heaven)
Also Appearing: Lydia and From Indian Lakes
7pm | $21.50 ADV | All Ages
The Maine is an American rock band from Tempe, Arizona formed in January of 2007. Their first full-length Can’t Stop Won’t Stop was released on July 8th, 2008 to incredible fan reception. With the momentum of their first release, The Maine dropped Black and White in the summer of 2010. It was instantly clear that what the group had was something special – it was this release that the fans and industry started to see their growth and maturity expand as creative artists and musicians.
