UnpluggedView – A Moon With A View

A Moon With A View
By Aaron Rowan

Moon & Sixpence Music And Art House is the happening new concert destination in town. Somewhere between a theater venue, warehouse space, and house show, M&S is our area’s newest home for all sorts of performing & visual art. In August we enjoyed everything from in-your-face rock and roll to Argentine tango & blue fusion to dreamy jazzy-folk music; and we’re blazing ahead this month with a very full lineup. Come on by 500 9th St., in the courtyard of the Cook Marketplace center, and see what we’ve got cooking!

The September schedule begins Saturday 9/2 with Chris Doud, MAMA-winning songwriter and co-frontman of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. He’ll perform tunes from his solo albums, with his new trio act featuring Ryan Coscia (Solar Powered People) on percussion and Jacob Canada (Fat Skeleton, Tom VandenAvond) on banjo & upright bass. 8 PM, $10.
Sunday 9/3: Eliza Rickman, who recently set the record for the top-funded music video in the history of crowdfunding. Eliza’s live set includes the most unique spread of instrumentation of any artist I’ve worked with. 3 PM, $10.

Wednesday 9/13: Hot Club Faux Gitane. Rhythm & lead guitars and acoustic bass typical of gypsy swing, plus mandolin, bassoon, clarinet, and the occasional melodica. They augment the traditional repertoire with jazz standards, Latin tunes, and original compositions, all played in the gypsy jazz style. 7:30 PM, $15.

Friday 9/15, local favorites Cooking With Turf present their repertoire of Irish, Scottish, Canadian, New England, Appalachian, British, Breton and Galician tunes. 7:30 PM, $15.

Saturday 9/16: Puerto Rican harpist & singer María José Montijo, with an opening set of Latin folk by local troubadour Boscoe’s Brood (Sam Regalado) and his sister Sus Corez, a popular figure in the music community of California’s central coast. 7 PM, $10.

Friday 9/22, Rebecca Leah Dias’ Mostly Jazz Quartet will share a mix of jazz-infused covers of classic standards and pop favorites, with some originals sprinkled in. 7:30 PM, $15.

Saturday 9/23, a Songwriters’ Roundtable showcases revolving sets by three acoustic acts. Me & You blend alternative folk, blues, soul and harmonies to make their own sound. Rocky Tallent keeps cadence with the meter of the Ozark Mountains. Zoe Rose combines country and blues with a bit of punk rock. 7 PM, $8.

Tuesday 9/26, indie songwriter Shenandoah Davis offers up songs from her new record “Souvenirs,” featuring poetic yet direct lyricism masterful vocals, driving piano, and sweeping orchestral arrangements. 8 PM, $10.

Friday 9/29: Shelby, Texas, a country/southern rock band often compared to Johnny Cash & June Carter. He’s a little bit country, she’s a little bit rock n’ roll. Together, they’ve created something truly awesome. 8 PM, $10.
