Horse Feathers and Matthew Loiacono

Horse Feather Loiacano Lena poster

Nice poster.

Here's something cool going on midweek: Horse Feathers is playing Caffe Lena with Matthew Loiacono Wednesday night.

Out of Portland, Oregon, Horse Feathers is one of those bands that's hard to describe. They seem to be consistently labeled as "Americana" -- we'd probably add "whispery" to that tag. Here's how NPR's Song of the Day described them:

[Horse Feathers] offer[s] up rustic, vaguely doomstruck atmosphere more than they convey discrete hooks and distinct messages. But it's always beautiful atmosphere, and the group incorporates enough evocative turns of phrase to keep its music from turning into mere window dressing.

You can check out their music on MySpace. They also recorded a Daytrotter session.

And, hey, Matthew Loiacono will be opening the evening with a solo set. Matthew promises "some Kentucky stuff, but also some new stuff, some old dusted off stuff, perhaps some political stuff, maybe the Buffy the Vampire Slayer love note, probably some sing-a-longs, clap-a-longs... all that!"

The show starts at 7 pm. Tickets are $8 ($10 at the door) -- and we hear that half of them have already been sold.


Hey, Matt is a pretty cool guy. But I heard he likes Tequila Rose, and it's hard for me to trust anyone who drinks that stuff. But I trust him. I really, truly do.

If winter ever gets its act together and drops more snow on us, there will be sidewalks to shovel. And shortly after that, Albany will... (more)
