ESI Events presents Mount Eerie live in the 9th Ward w/ Dan & Leanne and Darling Harbor!
Mount Eerie’s late-2013 release, Pre-Human Ideas, filtered Phil Elverum’s nuanced songcraft from previous albums Clear Moon and Ocean Roar through the digital ringer. Elverum’s experimental leanings have been well documented, from his abandonment of the successful Microphones moniker to forays into his own version of black metal (2009’s Wind’s Poem). The interpretations on Pre-Human Ideas are meant to be mostly that: Elverum’s previously humanoid compositions are tinseled with pitch-corrected silliness and MIDI-fied vignettes of trance-y mellowness. Whether Elverum chases that same vibe at his scheduled show Thursday April 17th at The 9th Ward or
not, you will likely be engaged. Even at its most intense, Mount Eerie’s music has a warm, soothing quality to it.
Dan & Leanne and Darling Harbor open the show.
Dan & Leanne: With Dan on the guitar and Leanne on vocals, the cousins play a blend of soulful bluesy rock originals while portraying a vibe that is a cross between Gaslight Anthem and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. They bring soul and power to the stage, being able to engage and entertain a broad audience.
Darling Harbor: Darling Harbor meets every audience with sincerity and honesty. Their music is as naked and genuine as the stories the lyrics are pulled from. Their stage show reveals the difficulties of loss, the joys of love, and the realities of moving forward juxtaposed against sing-a-long choruses, foot-tapping rhythms and walls of harmony. Darling Harbor has great talent, great personality, and a stage show that’s making waves.
