The enigmatic Brattleboro songsmith, Chris Weisman makes an all-too-rare live appearance. Weisman is one New England’s most prolific and influential songwriters, guitarists, and vocalists; an iconic weaver of unfettered wordplay, clouded harmony, and pliant melody who has released more than two dozen CDrs, cassettes, and records over the last decade and a half. His music blends the immediacy of the classic records of the 60’s— hooky Lennon-McCartney choruses, warm balladry, and sentimental torch songs— with distinctive uncanniness, that peculiar allure of a lo-fi masterwork or a forgotten gem. Weisman imbues his stream-of-consciousness folk songs with a structural complexity, influenced by his deep jazz studies and his own original conceptual systems, yet his songs never stray far from a melody’s core or a sense of familiarity, that immediately recognizable, oft-imitated, but never duplicated sound of all things Weisman.
The evening will be opened by The Veazies, the far-out diva pop outfit of Janane Tripp (Visitations, 3D Jet Scooter) and Corey Jennings.
