@Aster Cafe, 125 Main St SE, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55414
9:00pm – THE STARFOLK
The Starfolk makes melody-rich chamber pop music that rocks in front man Brian Tighe’s quintessentially ethereal way. Tighe fronted power-pop darlings The Hang Ups in the 90’s, co-fronts bittersweet girl-boy poppers The Owls, and plays lead guitar with the belovedly hush-toned Jeremy Messersmith. The Starfolk three-piece (sans drums) highlights the gentler chamber folk/pop nuances of their songs. Featuring Allison LaBonne (The Owls, Typsy Panthre) on bass and vocals, and Jacqueline Ultan (Jelloslave, Saltee) on cello. Their debut full length is out now on Korda Records.
9:30pm – 2RED
2Red is Michelle’s new project with Queen Drea. Queen Drea and Michelle Kinney play with dense layers of cello and vocal orchestrations, combining distinctly different musical influences and styles, to create a sound like no other. 2Red may come to the gig with a framework of original songs and surprising covers, but due to their mutual love of improvisation, EVERY performance will be different!
10:00 – JELLOSLAVE
Jelloslave plays an eclectic mix of original compositions and unique arrangements of pop and world music and features Jacqueline Ultan and Michelle Kinney, cellos; Greg Schutte, drums; Gary Waryan, tabla.
