Join us in Black Iris Gallery, April 29th for hypnotic sounds of Chicago based Weatherman. The Weatherman is pianist/vocalist Annie Higgins, drummer Jason Toth, and Joshua Dumas on exploratory electronics. Also sometimes harmony vocals from Angela James and special guests such as clarinetist James Falzone. Their first releases appeared in the form of 3 singles released in 2015 on La Société Expéditionnaire. They have shared bills in Chicago with the likes of Juana Molina, Psalm One, Cathedrals, and Ryley Walker.
Opening the evening is James Anthony and Erin Gerety's Aspidistra. An aspidistra is a common houseplant whose blossoms look something like raw, bleeding hearts. Aspidistra formed in the spring of 2015 and is a Richmond, VA based noise pop duo with Erin Gerety on vocals and Jimmy Anthony on electronics, and then there’s all that stuff about fangs and the pangs of sadness and sex and flowers opening outward in slow motion.
