Fresh from excavations in Iceland, Wolverton welcomes you to Highwire Arts. We'll play for at least two hours beginning promptly at 8. From there we'll let the feeling grow through a couple of dozen songs or so. We've got seven or eight new songs to share with you, including a brand new one luxuriously calligraphed on an LP sleeve by Jeremiah; Kate's Driving Memory, written on the road from the Folk Alliance; Caralyn's Dance Upon, in which Hills and Jeremiah sing the words "shake it" multiple times with straight faces; and Hills' Birthday, which with twenty verses is practically a novella. From the Verne Report: "Coded, cryptic or incomplete messages as a plot device continue to appear in many of Wolverton's works."

Exhibiting a creepy Doors-like atmosphere, “Pool” is a highly effective slice of psychedelia --- a mix of early Paul Roland and Jim Morrison, while “May I Ask” has a brighter quality with a sweet guitar running through its centre. Over six songs, the quality and atmosphere remains high, great stuff."
