AMIGO the DEVIL, FLIP CASSIDY & NATASHA DUCHENE
DOORS: 9 PM / SHOW: 10 PM
AMIGO the DEVIL: Two arms, two legs and an active imagination. This project was born in San Francisco during the largest snowstorm of the season. As it snowed in my apartment, it rained down my throat and i was warming up to the idea of following through with a solo project. I had been listening to so many different genres at the time that I couldn't really pick any specific influence to chase as an outline so I began to play around with different instruments. The base of "Perfect Wife" was the first song written and it will always have a warm spot in my heart. The lyrics all came through on the violent side, but the music itself still sounded melodic enough. I personally think it's a lighthearted song. Shit, I knew I was happy with that. I guess I wanted to write songs that leaned towards the night without sounding too dark. I wanted to write songs that emphasized the silence as opposed to simply filling it. The songs will come and go, change outfits every once in a while and maybe even have mood swings, but in the end, they're all still the most complete outlet I've had to get these stories out of my head.
FLIP CASSIDY: Raw, rusty Americana folk-punk perfect for driving on long desert highways. Pairs well with whiskey. Won't help with your sins. The Reverend Flip Cassidy is a rusty man who plays rusty songs on rusty guitars. The Junkyard Gospel is a howling, raging acoustic sound bellowed forth with a voice like a rusty saw blade. His solo performances are known to be highly energetic and infectious, surprisingly loud, and have even caused rippling, whiskey-induced fervors in audiences, fellow performers and bartenders alike.
NATASHA DUCHENE: From the abandoned ruins at the Salton Sea to the icy waters in Canada’s north; pianist, composer and adventurer Natasha Duchene has been entrancing audiences. With a background in electroacoustic and instrumental composition from Université de Montréal, she fuses these influences with songwriting and jazz to bring you to complex emotional spaces and into the dark woods at night, often drawing on the powerful landscapes of the north and the desert for metaphor and inspiration.
