A one-two punch to the feelz… June Star and Driftmouth share a show in Youngstown! Baltimore Maryland’s June Star (Andrew Grimm and Dave Hadley), with aching vocals and plaintive folk arrangements, comes off like a Smog-era Bill Callahan if he had chosen to dive inward or The Jayhawks if they were more keen to stark emotional realism. Grimm’s rich baritone voice and Hadley’s atmospheric, elegiac pedal steel brings a time-honored aesthetic to their unique tales of fractious love, quixotic anxiety, the looming shadow of death, and the promise of a new day to try again.
Driftmouth is a Athens band comprised of Lou Poster (vocals, guitar), Jess Kauffman (Bass, Vocals) and David Murphy (Drums, Vocals). The band formed in 2014 and their sound can be described as a mix of country, bluegrass, punk, and wild garage. This mix of genres is also known as “Garage Americana.”
The show will take place on Tuesday, July 25. Door at 7PM, show starts at 8PM. Tickets are $10.
