Mary Lattimore

Weekend Warrior, July 29 - 31

Mary Lattimore is coming to The Foundry tonight for a dazzling spectacle of evocative avant-harp plucking. Lattimore is the new anomalous harpist that has been embraced by the wider indie music community, collaborating with artists such as Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Arcade Fire, and many more. Her whimsical music is largely improvised, and attempts to capture a certain mood, image, or theme in its wandering melodies. On tour with Lattimore is Quilt, the psych-pop crew that everybody loves for their pitch-perfect, effortlessly agreeable, upper-crust indie rock. Their sound is primarily rooted in Beatles worship, but there is also a resemblance to more contemporary indie bands like Tame Impala or Of Montreal. The Foundry, 29 E. Allen St., 9pm, $13, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

Weekend Warrior, March 4 - 6

After winning a coveted Pew Fellowship, Mary Lattimore set out on an journey across the wide-open roads of America with a friend and her trusty but bulky 47-string Lyon & Healy harp. This adventure inspired the compositions that now make up her full-length album At the Dam, a name borrowed from Joan Didion's essay about the Hoover Dam. The record is out today via Ghostly International, and you can help Lattimore celebrate its arrival tomorrow evening at PhilaMOCA. Kicking the night off will be garage-psych outfit Spacin', who will be returning home from being on the road with Kurt Vile & The Violators. They'll also be joined by the single gal synthpop project of New Zealander Annabel Alpers, otherwise known as Bachelorette. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

New Mary Lattimore LP Available for Streaming

Below is a new solo album from experimental harpist Mary Lattimore entitled At the Dam. Named after the essay written by Joan Didion about the Hoover Dam, Lattimore wrote the compositions after a road trip across the U.S. with a friend and her 47-string Lyon & Healy harp, which was funded by the fellowship that she had been awarded by the Pew Center. The tranquil five-song LP is set to come out this Friday, March 4 via Ghostly International, and you can help her celebrate its arrival the following evening at PhilaMOCA, alongside pals Spacin' and Bachelorette, the synthpop project from New Zealander Annabel Alpers.

Mary Lattimore Opening for Meg Baird at JB’s Aug. 27

Former Philly native now San Francisco resident Meg Baird will be returning home this evening at Johnny Brenda’s with her new album, Don’t Weigh Down The Light (Drag City/Wichita), in tow. She has tapped the experimental, contemplative sounds of local harpist and Pew fellow Mary Lattimore to lay down the groundwork of what should be an attentive mood for the night. Multi-instrumentalist Samara Lubelski will also be providing abstract drones to fill your headspace. Come out and take in an enchanting evening with a group of talented ladies who have definitely taken the road less traveled in music. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - H. M. Kauffman
