C-Notes music writers let a band explain why you need to see them tonight, even though it's Wednesday. Today, we bring you the Unsparing Sea, Cleveland's leading chamber-post-rock combo. Because we
like them so much, there's no way we can even pretend to be objective about 'em.
Band: Unsparing Sea
Web: www.unsparingsea.com, www.myspace.com/unsparingsea
Sounds Like: "The Dirty Three with vocals or the Arcade Fire if they were from the South. It's basically indie-rock and folk music with cello, saw, accordion, banjo and all kinds of other stuff."
Fun Fact: "My dad's cousin is married to a Carter sister, and Johnny Cash once gave him his watch! At least that's what I was told."
Playing: "Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd.), for FREE on Wednesday, May 13th at 8:30 pm SHARP - before Bonnie Prince Billy."
Why You Need to See Them: "It's freaking FREE!?!? Plus we have a brand new EP available, and we've been practicing." —J.R. Bennett (guitar/vocals)
