Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Brian Straw/Take Berlin

When: Thu., Nov. 7, 9 p.m. 2013

The subdued-yet-intriguing Brian Straw has a unique take on the singer-songwriter genre. Like unwrapping a present from a secret admirer, the veteran local singer takes his audiences to intimate, sincere places. Known for his ghostly flowing acoustic songs and lyrics that read like elaborate prose, Straw creates a somber yet welcoming mood within his set. In the past, he's collaborated with the renown band the Six Parts Seven, using them as both backing band and for remix material; however, tonight Straw will play solo. You may know him already as he's been a regular opener for acts like Andrew Bird and Devendra Banhart as well as a headliner in his own right. With a new album coming up, he's likely to add new songs to his standard set. (Patrick Stoops)
