In support of his self titled new album, Ty Segall brings a solo acoustic rendition to the Turf Club next Tuesday. This show is SOLD OUT. If any last minute tickets become available through the venue they will be found HERE.
One thing for certain, this is an artist who is tough to pigeonhole. Over the past decade he’s written, produced and rocked around the world. Screaming, hard rock guitar or Beatlesque harmonizer; he goes where his muse moves him.
Back in April of 2018 Segall thrilled a packed First Avenue Mainroom and TCM was there to cover it. That time around featured The Freedom Band and was full on electric. The Turf edition is Ty alone with his guitar. The show promises to allow both the lyrics and his pyrotechnic guitar work to shine. No doubt his local fans thought that sounded like a good idea. Those tickets went quick.
Opening for Ty Segall is Minnesotan Paul Metzger. This set seems in keeping with Segall’s penchant for spotlighting both the strange and the eclectic. In this case it’s the high and lonesome cosmic hobo. Since way back when Paul Metzger has been experimenting, playing his art-guitar complete with a crash cymbal mounted to its bottom and his distinct heavily modified 23 string banjo. In 2003 he went public playing out sets of his own music, part old time strung out blues and raga’s and part deep listening compositions that wind their way through you inner ear.
