FIRST AVENUE PRESENTS: ELVIS PERKINS + TOBY THOMAS CHURCHILL
$16 IN ADVANCE/$16 AT THE DOOR - 9:30 PM
9pm doors/9:30pm showtime
Songwriter and recording artist Elvis Perkins will release his latest album I Aubade on February 24, 2015. Perkins’ third full-length is set to come out on his own label, MIR. This new work comes as something of a departure from his previous releases on XL Recordings. Whereas Ash Wednesday(2007) would not have been itself without the guidance of friend and producer Ethan Gold, and the eponymous Elvis Perkins in Dearland and subsequentDoomsday EP (2009) were group efforts, I Aubade was on the whole an autonomous project.
Toby Thomas Churchill:
Duluth singer-songwriter / multi-media artist Toby Thomas Churchill released his acclaimed second solo record, Where Is My Rumspringa Darling?, on Chaperone Records in November 2014 to rave reviews, and a growing buzz in the Minneapolis music scene.
Churchill’s dynamic live band is comprised of Danny Cosgrove, his longtime collaborator in The Alrights, along with the Grave Trio rhythm section (Roma di Luna, WAREY) consisting of James Everest (Lateduster) Ryan Lovan (Romantica) and guitarist / producer Ben Durrant (Andrew Bird, DOSH), who recorded the new TTC album at his Crazy Beast studio in Minneapolis.
