The Communion Club Nights Tour w/Birdie Busch & Prowler at JB’s Oct. 3

The Communion Club Nights Tour w/Birdie Busch & Prowler at JB’s Oct. 3

The Communion Club Nights Tour rolls into Johnny Brenda’s tonight. While the tour brings a trio of artists, Willy Mason, Roadkill Ghost Choir and Rubblebucket, it extends a friendly hand including local performers at each stop (in this case) Birdie Busch and Prowler. The show begins with Birdie Busch whose recipe for sound incorporates fundamental ingredients - memorable refined lyricism projected through vocals which embody a steady anchoring presence, all while the folk-oriented instrumentation works to encapsulate a peaceful yet ever-moving feel. Willy Mason uses a spoken-singing style that serves to authentically mold to his words lifting the emotions to the surface while echoing traditional folk. Six-piece Florida natives Roadkill Ghost choir are a hybrid of alt-country and indie rock. Then the tone distinctly changes as Prowler brings their customized danceable spaced-out electro-funk. The couple of Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth lead the group of eclectic, morphing horn-laced synth dance-pop of Rubblebucket ,who just released Save Charlie, wrap up this interesting and talent-littered night meshing sophisticated layered grooves and rhythms with succinct vocals. Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 7:30pm, $15, 21+ - Michael Colavita
