David Jensen (Before Braille) and Ashley Taylor (Art For Starters) have collaborated for a brand new project called Loyal Wife. The duo added Sam Hardwig, Spencer Reed and Blake Kimball (all previous members of local-favorites Awake & Alert) for studio and live peformances. Loyal Wife's debut full length "Faux Light" has been discribed as "an intelligent arrangement with sometimes heavy, sometimes sparse rock tunes that rely on space between instruments and perfect male/female vocal interactions. Loyal Wife should be on your radar."
THE COLD DESERT
The Cold Desert began in Phoenix, Arizona in the Summer of 2008 as the solo project of singer/songwriter Matt Klassen. After two years of stressing out over how to play five instruments at the same time, Jared Kaiser and Bobby Ball joined the band on drums and bass, respectively, in the Fall of 2010. In March of 2011 they welcomed multi-instrumentalist Cody Nelson into the lineup.
Rob Withem will open the show with a rare acoustic performance. Rob has enjoyed much critical acclaim through his efforts as the songwriter and voice behind Fine China and The Foxglove Hunt. Fine China toured the country on Tooth & Nail Records and released a number of critically acclaim albums from the late 90's till 2006. In 2007, Rob formed The Foxglove Hunt as a duo with Ronnie Martin of Joy Electric and completed two impressive releases, "Stop Heartbeat" and "Built My Fortress" available through Common Wall Media.
