This November is a very special Queer Country Monthly. We’re celebrating Humble Tripe’s Record Release Party!
A little more about the party and the record: In celebration of their upcoming release (out October 22nd), Humble Tripe returns to the QCM for a special full length performance of the album. With vocal performances simultaneously evoking that of Neil Young and Mazzy Star, Humble Tripe’s latest collection reflects a journey from delicate to dynamic, resting on the tender storytelling shoulders of front man Shawn Luby, all the while delivering a graceful offering: The Giving.
And for serious, queer country friends, I’ve heard the album and it’s AMAZING. You don’t want to miss this. Plus, the Sorrows and the super-talented Wiley Gaby will be opening. It’s gonna be a great night.
WHEN: Saturday, November 9th, 8:00 pm
WHERE: Branded Saloon, 603 Vanderbilt Avenue at the corner of Bergen St, Brooklyn
DOOR: $5 (but no one ever turned away for lack of funds)
Also, there is always a bucket of free candy for people who like candy.
Hope to see you all soon!
Pushing the boundaries of Folk-Americana, Humble Tripe moves from songwriter to symphony, resulting in a haunting landscape of beautiful swells, dramatic tension and space on their upcoming sophomore album entitled, The Giving.
Your host, Karen & the Sorrows
Brooklyn alt-country band Karen & the Sorrows play “soaring tributes to lost love and… gentle and charming ballads” (Neville Elder, No Depression). Their debut EP Ocean-Born Mary is a four-part ghost story of “allusive, attractive but distantly menacing songs… Country keeps evolving, and Karen & the Sorrows are taking it to a place it’s never been before, a good and creepy one.” (New York Music Daily)
A small-town boy from the swamps of North Florida with a love for Dolly Parton and a fondness for bourbon + boys + buckwilderness.”After Gaby sang a cover of Robyn’s ‘Dancing on My Own,’ which was indeed heartbreaking and desperate—and damn beautiful—all of the yearning and burning sentiment I’d tapped into with Morrissey was suddenly there in Prospect Heights. Except this wasn’t an emo Brit crooner, it was a Floridian transplant singing a Swedish pop song in Brooklyn.” – Gordon West, NEXT MAGAZINE
