The Humboldt Current, 6/5/11 at Chapel Hill's NIGHTLIGHT
Sara Morris is, well, The Humboldt Current. Her shows are rare, about like cicadas and beautiful blooms on a century plant. On Sunday, June 5, 2011, she played her first show in over 3 years. (Last one was 2/9/08.) It was worth the wait, and had me wanting to beg for more shows this year. Accompanying her were Laurie Desch on guitar and mandolin, Katie Spencer on accordion and glockenspiel, and Perry Wright on keys and maybe a synthesizer. Venue was Nightlight on W. Rosemary St, Chapel Hill NC (http://www.nightlightclub.com/)
FYI, Laurie plays under her own name; Katie is from the former Chapel Hill group, "Sweater Weather"; and Perry Wright is the heart and soul of "The Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellars". For fans of Perry's gorgeous, provocative music, he will be playing again, resurrecting his "Prayers and Tears..." group this September 2011 for Raleigh's Hopscotch Music Festival, along with the likes of The Flaming Lips, Guided By Voices, Drive-by Truckers, more national grabbers, and many local groups. -Not bad company.
