The return of First Sunday at WSAC
- This weekend, First Sunday returns after a hiatus!
7:30 PM, Sunday, November 3
Headlining the show will be Little Rabbit. You may have seen them
earlier this year at Davis Square's ArtBeat, but if not, this
four-piece plays old-timey music. If you've seen "O Brother Where
Art Thou?", you know what I mean; though they really don't sound
like either Gillian Welch or Allison Krauss, both would approve. The
band features Eric Royer of the Resophonics, and of his own one-man
band; he played at WSAC a while ago with Sean Staples & they rocked
(or bluegrassed?) the house. If you're a First Sunday veteran, you
probably have also caught Willie Bernstein on one of their many
appearances; Little Rabbit features Willie's Tim Baldanzi, as well.
Opening the show is Matt Henry, who played at First Sunday at the
beginning of the year. Well-known in his native Virginia, and a
favorite of Colin Powell, he is just starting to catch on here in the
clubs & alleyways. His sensitive acoustic indie-rock is sure to
leave you with nary a dry eye and crying for more.
If you'd like, you can check out the controversial full-color flyer
here; it's about 1.1M in size, so you have plenty of time to steel
