I had the absolute honor of reviewing an album from Coyote Kid over quarantine. It was one of the best things I had heard all summer and all I wanted to do was see this band live. Well, that chance is finally coming on Thursday, August 5th at The 7th Street Entry and I suggest you come join me!
Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis-based Coyote Kid (FKA Marah in the Mainsail). The sound is dark and mysterious at its core. With layers upon layers of dynamic turns, from the hopeful highs of “Fox hole” to the guttural darkness of “the Great Beyond”. Between Durry’s true grit voice, and Cassandra’s tender subtlety, you’ll find a vast array of narrative and stylistic possibilities. With imposing and wild jungle drums, soaring brass horns, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti western guitars. This band has all of the tools it needs to paint an epic picture.
Opening up for Coyote Kid will be Careful Gaze. I actually heard one of these guys’ new songs last month and it was absolutely amazing. It’s a bit dreamier than the music of Coyote Kid but it will absolutely pack the same punch live so get there in time to catch these.
Kicking things off will be Happy Birthday Mr. Baskets. I honestly know nothing about this performer but am so excited to see them get the night started off right!
Tickets are still available HERE!
