Buck Meek (Big Thief) with Twain
Buck Meek, known for his work with the band Big Thief is on tour promoting his two most recent records, Masterpiece (2016) and Capacity (2017). Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm. Twain will be opening. $10 at the door, or in advance.
Buck Meeks songs are for the lost dogs of honest mechanics, good guys and girls born into a life of crime, runaways, snow spirits, the ghosts of Central Park, unsung diving-board stars, the affection shared through gambling, and so on. Bred in Texas, more bread in New York City, Meek spins outlaw ballads and quotidian fairy tales into a yarn, with Adam Brisbin on guitar (Jolie Holland, Sam Evian, Katie Von Schleicher), Mat Davidson on bass (Twain, The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion), and Austin Vaughn on drums (Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple, Sam Evian).
Buck Meek is a kaleidoscope of human relationships of widows, daughters, flight attendants, best friends, bar flies, neighborhood heroes, and troublemakers it illuminates mysticism in the temporal, humor unearthed in tragedy, the strength of vulnerability, and the words unspoken that elucidate love.
For the past decade or so, Mt. Davidson has cultivated his songs and sounds, attempting to create a bridge, a meeting place, between the terrestrial and the mystic. He is a ponderous and delicate sort of creature, short and vaguely leonine, who has spent most of his young life abiding in the midlands of transcendence.
