Wednesday: Gull, Katie Wood, Eula, maybe a cup of tea

3/25 @ The Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar: Gull / Katie Wood / Eula  9:00  $7

This should be a very nice Wednesday night show, the kind you weren’t necessarily going to go to but then are so glad you did. In the secret freedom of Wednesday night, away from the tumult and lies of the weekend, in a minor pause, we may receive the pure-hearted and offhand grace of music with all the gratitude due to it.

 

 

Gull is Nate from Snacktruck, doing his intense one-man guitar&drums/vocals-through-a-mask thing. He is a frequent and popular visitor to Charlottesville and you’ve probably seen him play but if not you really ought to get to it, you won’t be disappointed.

Katie Wood is a local singer-songwriter who has played many shows recently but not the ones I have been to. But listening to her on the link above makes me think I have missing out. Dark, with flecks of gold; no friend to the boring.

 

 

Eula is a Brooklyn band with a jagged, jittery, but slinky too, post-punk sound. They bring more of the compacted, intelligent intensity that should characterize the whole night. And they might bring it very strong, and be really exciting to see.

I started on this post just because it has been awhile since the last one, and not with any real interest in the show, which I was planning on skipping. But after doing the listening for it I have come around: this is not one to skip. This is one of those under-the-radar Wednesday night ninja assassins of a show that creeps through the window to slit the throat of the week’s tedium.
