Don’t forget: Gabe Barnett and the Big House Jug Band play Thursday night at 8:00 pm.
A little quote about Gabe from City Pages, Best Folk Artist, 2009 (via Merlins Rest on Facebook):
[Gabe Barnett] embodies the spirit of the wandering troubadour, to be sure, but there are no gimmicks or mimicry to his music. When he sings, he stands up tall and raises his eyebrows toward the ceil…ing, projecting his words into the room with the unabashed earnestness that so many indie-folk kids are trying desperately to achieve. Barnett has stumbled onto the key that could unlock and then unravel the whole neo-folk movement: If you want to seem sincere, you have to mean it.
