Elliot Martin and Nate Silas Richardson play the music of JBB and Black Castle, opening for Rochester-based Multibird!
Multibird is the brand new project by Seth Faergolzia (Dufus, Forest Creature, 23 Psaegz, Heck Yup). Seth is well known for subtly harmonic, experimental lyricism, dynamic song structures, and whip-crack-acrobatic vocals. Celebrated as a vibrant example of what happens when a musician turns a genre like folk upside down and inside out, over time Faergolzia has come to represent something of a genre unto himself oft times nowhere near the folk aesthetic.
With a body of work that exceeds 20 albums and appearances in over 20 countries with the likes of The YeahYeahYeahs, Dan Deacon, Animal Collective, Regina Spektor, Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches... Faergolzia is poised to put a spring in the step of his global following with his latest project, "#100 songs" wherein he has, in a short span of months, written 100 songs, and released one fully produced song per week through a subscription site: www.faergolzia.com.
Seth plays acoustic guitar and sings. Shaun Jones from Heck Yup, will be gently shredding electric guitar. Beat professor, drummer extraordinaire, Dominic Marini was along for the Faergolzia tour last year and has become a mainstay of Seth's projects. Stan Martinelli, the youngest member of Seth's project 23 Psaegz is holding down the bass lines.
The freak-folk group performs a full and varied cross-section of the peerless oddball music that has delighted and baffled audiences, collaborators, and critics alike for over 2 decades. Faergolzia will continue to shake musical conventions, making moments honest and organic in their exploration of possibility.
