    Astrid Young has shared stages and studios with a mind-blowing roster of musical legends. She wrote a bestselling book, made a short film, played or sang on a ton of records, and is also a wine professional (sommelier). She’s a singer songwriter who’s style has been described as somewhere between David Bowie and Black Sabbath, and sometimes like Karen Carpenter on acid. Her most recent release, One Night at Giant Rock, was co-produced with Victor DeLorenzo, a founding member of the iconic folk-punk band The Violent Femmes. She slings a 12-string guitar like a weapon, and tonight she’ll be joined by her band, which includes cousin Matthew Davies, guitar and bassman extraordinaire Matt King, and Junkhouse/Lee Harvey Osmond drummer Ray Farrugia.

Q: Can you define "Acid Folk" for me? Is this new album of yours. Concidered Acid Folk?

A: i kind of made up the genre 'psychedelic acid folk' - which is a sub-genre of the made-up genre of 'acid folk' coined by Tom Wilson. it's folk that might have taken some harder drugs in its youth, and hasn't quite evened out the edges nor does it try ... not quite rock, because it's more acoustic-oriented - but definitely not your garden variety coffee-house patchouli-wearing ponytail-sporting all sensitive and self-centered kind of schlock you might expect when you hear the word 'folk' ... its acid folk because it cuts. it's psychedelic acid folk because it takes you on a trip, and cuts you up along the way ... hope that helps.
