Weekend Warrior, April 27 - 29

Weekend Warrior, April 27 - 29

The assemblage of Port Arthur creates engaging, intimate folk. The proximity of the storytelling exhibits a trustful confidence, opening the curtains for all to see and coaxing communicable scenarios in the process. One finds joy in pensive vulnerability, which retains an elevated touch as a cavalcade of instrumentation paints the finer details. Tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, they’ll be joined by the unwavering, straight-shooting songwriting of Shannen Moser, which aches while simultaneously exuding a heartwarming resilience. Signals Midwest’s Maxwell Stern will also invite you on an observational caravan, tying together external sensations and circumstances with internal revelations. Chicago’s Friends of the Bog completes this formidable, folk lineup.
