Sisters Lucas 7" Release Show
w/Gardens, Aran Ruth
Saturday December 27th 2008 -10pm
The Sisters Lucas (that's twins Julie and Loretta Lucas) celebrate their first official 7" release on Bellyache Records this Saturday night!
These gals will steal your heart and your ears with their beautiful and captivating music. This is folk music for the modern era-- a true appreciation for simpler times past meets that odd Motor City glamor in a way that can only be pulled off by this pair.
The 7" is entitled "To What and What Of" and will be available for purchase at the show.
Gardens are Detroit's leading avant garde group. Lo-fi, distorted and immeasurably catchy, Gardens will blow you away with their energy and exponentially increasing popularity and artistry. It's like The Velvet Underground, The 13th Floor Elevators and The Sonics had a musical baby.
Aran Ruth is a local dreamer of unusual talent and thought. Ruth summons an impossible world into existence, then maps it out three minutes at a time. The world depicted in her songs feels distressingly unsafe. Everything is temporary in Ruth's songs; there's sunshine, but it casts tall shadows large enough to hide monsters. Voices murmur in dark cellars and there's safety in the clearing but black fuzz ogres lurk in the forest nearby.
