Music in the HART – Week 2 – The Black-eyed Snake

This Thursday The Black-eyed Snakes will be playing for Music in the HART concert series. Stop down to Lake Place Park Thursday 8/9 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm. Each week will feature a different band. For the full list please check out the schedule HERE. All shows are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.

Nothing quite compares to watching a Mormon nicknamed “Chicken Bone George” stoke an audience of heathens into a pulsating frenzy … while the artist is mostly sitting down. The normally calculated and mild-mannered George Alan Sparhawk of Low fame screams distorted gospel commands when leading longtime side-project the Black-eyed Snakes. Meanwhile, “Big House” Bobby Olson’s guitar cranks out heavy-metal blues while the space is filled by the twin skins of drummer Brad Nelson and percussionist Bryan “Lefty” Johnson. The band’s third album — the first since 2003’s Rise Up! — is in the works.

Music in the HART- Week 1 – Superior Siren

Today kicks off week one of the Music in the HART series. Stop down to Lake Place Park today from 4:30pm – 6:30pm. Each week will feature a different band. For the full list please check out the schedule HERE. All shows are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.

Superior Siren began 2018 with a full house at Sacred Heart Music Center for the band’s self-titled album release show. Band leader, singer and songwriter Laura Sellner explained the eerie folk style to the crowd. “I wanted to make music that comforted the disturbed and disturbed the comforted.” The synergy of the classical cello and upright bass playing by Rachel Gobin and Nyssa Krause, respectively, with the simple yet conscious drumming of Emma Deaner create deep and lingering sounds supported by Sellner’s lyrics of love and empowerment.
