Noah Gundersen Show Recap

Congrats to Kyle Jones for winning the tickets to Noah’s show at the Columbia City Theater. Here’s a little recap from Kyle:

A Family Ordeal
Noah Gundersen’s CD release at Columbia City Theater was a family engagement and the perfect thing to get away from the city grind during Seafair festivities. Sister Abby was on stage playing in both the opening acts as well as with Noah for the whole show. The second opener Le Wrens is comprised on three Gundersen’s including Elizabeth, Jonathan, and Abby, with close friends Kale Lotton and Michael Porter rounding out the band. There twist of folk and country, singer song writer style perfectly prepped the crown for Noah’s set. Le Wrens, although young, played a very polished set with all original music, except for a cover of Johnny Cash’s song, Folsom Prison Blues which really got the crowd going. On to Noah….the twenty two year old never ceases to amazing me. Him and Abby accompanied by his first opener, Zach Fleury, who played percussion throughout the first half of Noah’s set, wowed the crowd with beautiful stories, acoustic awesomeness, and vocals beg you to picture his songs as he sung them. Its hard to pin point the feeling you get when you hear him play but its like you can actually hear what his soul is saying. It was definitively a night to remember and a reason to look forward to the winter when Noah will be releasing a full length album. Thanks to Le Grand Cru for hooking me up with tickets and a free signed CD. And if you haven’t heard Noah Gundersen please check out his bandcamp and facebook pages, listen to his music and catch his next show, you will not regret it.

NOAH GUNDERSEN

3 days ago our friend Noah Gundersen tweeted he would be in Dallas recording a record. I’m not sure if everyone caught this fantastic news or not, SO I’ve compiled some of his recent snaps from twitter for some insight. Looks like Cello is involved, birds eye view of a sweet pool, Abbey, and a sweet looking Martin guitar. Good signs for an album to come! Come out to the High Dive on May 26 to see Noah, hopefully he’ll be playing some of these new songs then.

YOUNG LIONS

Our friends Young Lions are headlining a show at the High Dive tonight here in Seatown! The line up is fantastic, it’s gonna be a swell show. Young Lions jus released 2 brand new songs from their upcoming Ep this week, have a listen HERE . I can’t stop listening to Huckleberry, the power of this song is in the restraint and Joshs’ vocals that convince you he’s lived every word he sings. Top notch fellas! Come out to the show, I’ll be there!

FLEET FOXES NEW SINGLE!

Goodness! I’ve been wondering when anything new would come from these Seatown natives. I know Robin & J. Tillman have been busy on the road, and when D U N G E N were here last year the entire FLEET got up on stage for a couple songs, twas epic, but nothing beats their combined efforts. The new record is in stores May 3 and if you are in our hood they are playing at the Moore the same day ->Pre-Sale starts today and Public tomorrow, get your mitts on them while you can! See if they are in your neck of the woods HERE

THATH


For about 6 months now, I’ve been hearing a lot about The Head And The Heart from my Seattle friends. I was super excited that they were finally making their way down to CA. Last week, they played a FREE show at the Silverlake Lounge. Their energy was stupendous and the place was packed. It was nice getting to chat with them a little bit after the show and it made my day that they connected Le Grand Cru to Tommy. Hopefully they’ll make it back to this area soon!
