The Barr Brothers @ Joe's Pub
The Barr Brothers

The Barr Brothers are on a tour with Jocie Adams of the Low Anthem that hits Union Pool in Brooklyn tonight (12/8). As Bill wrote after seeing them recently in Montreal:

While not the type of music I normally listen to (KEXP/KCRW alt-folk), there is no denying they're skilled songwriters and a knockout live band. And clever arrangers too, prone to inventive instrumentation. In addition to a full-time harpist, Andrew Barr plays a "threaded" acoustic guitar which allows for a bowed-like sound, and homemade guitars and banjos. They really are great live and it won't be long before they are playing much bigger venues.
Check out more pictures from the show they played at Joe's Pub last night, below...

Unless that's Dean Ween in those photos, this show looks like a snoozefest

Great show last night...I have seen them a few times and they are quickly becoming one of my favorite new bands to see...Just to clarify, Brad plays the threaded acoustic guitar, Andrew is on percussion and various other interesting instruments. This band is definitely worth checking out!
