The Dutchess & the Duke @ Spider House
The Dutchess & The Duke

Seattle’s The Dutchess and the Duke are led by songwriters Jesse Lortz and Kimberly Morrison. Their most recent americana-folk LP, Sunset/Sunrise, came out in October 2009 (shortly before they played the BV CMJ loft party). Two songs from that record are above. The duo (who sometimes play as a full band) performed an amazing, informative set at the Hardly Art showcase at SXSW earlier this year (Jesse offered one *unverified* tip on how to get around Austin’s smoking ban: light up on stage, and it’s first-amendment-protected art). That same week they performed an acoustic-on-the-ground show at Spider House. A set of pictures from the latter are in this post. Most recently they opened for New Pornographers at the Bell House and other shows on the collective’s tour.

The group comes back to NYC for a pair of shows on a short tour this September. The first is September 3rd at Union Pool. Tickets are on sale. The second happens September 4th at Mercury Lounge with The Wailing Wall. Tickets are on sale.

Videos of the group, more SXSW pics and all tour dates are below…
