Wormburner - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
“Drawing from the sounds of the ’80s American rock underground, Wormburner takes those tones and uses them to paint vivid character sketches electrically delivered by frontman Hank Henry. Wormburner has roamed the streets of NYC for the better part of half a decade, collecting details and sketches of local color for their songs” – KEXP in Seattle
Waiting for Henry - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Waiting for Henry
Waiting For Henry is four guys, a stack of beater geetars, three overdrive pedals, a coupla analog delays, one set of drums and two albums of emotive American rock & roll. That’s right, TWO albums. This spring, Waiting For Henry is set to release the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut, Ghosts & Compromise. Earning praise on both sides of the Atlantic, and hitting the Americana airwaves in 30 states and throughout Europe, Ghosts was a big indie surprise of 2013. Called “timeless… perfect for any playlist in any era,” (Huffington Post), “a guitar lover’s dream” (Aquarian Weekly) with “indie rock urgency, garage band attitude and a Jayhawks meet R.E.M. intelligent power,” (Alternate Root), the band looked to the past to meet the future. On Album #2… in 2016… WFH is going back once again.
This time, WFH put their 80’s indie, meets 90’s alt-country influences in the hands of guru producer Mitch Easter, Let’s Active guitarist, and the man responsible for conjuring R.E.M.’s Murmur and Reckoning. Mitch brought them out of the basement and straight into the garage. Rather than a departure from Ghosts the new album, a year in the making, is a maturation in song, craft and energy. The 12 songs that underpin this American ride were mixed by Darrell Thorp, Grammy Award winning mixer of Beck’s Morning Phase.
Waiting for Henry members… singer/songwriter/guitarists Dave Slomin (former Mr. Henry frontman), and Dave Ashdown, Mike Chun on bass and Rob Draghi drumming are itching at the bit to get outa the studio and hit the clubs in support of the new album. Expect a gritty symphony of decided imperfection… mostly in the Key of G. In the words of Toronto’s exclaim magazine, their energetic live show “can sneak up on you, carry you away…”
