"It's not just a clever name. Slim Twig is also a comically accurate description of this emerging rocker's appearance -- tall and gaunt, with a jet black pompadour, pencil-thin moustache, starched-white button-down shirt and tight black pants, the avant-crooner carries himself like Tim Burton's idea of a Nashville star. On stage, gnashing at a semi-hollow-body guitar and howling in reverb-drenched tones about snake-oil salesmen and sweaty gunmetal, Slim Twig's persona is made flesh. Even his film debut last year alongside Ellen Page in Bruce McDonald's visually compelling psychodrama The Tracey Fragments bore the charcoal shading of his stage presence." [Eye Weekly]

Canada's Paper Bag Records showcase still happened at Pianos in NYC on Tuesday night (2/24), but without the band we were most looking foward to. According to Toby, "Winter Gloves who were headlining couldn't make it past homeland security at the Canadian border and were forced to cancel. The bill was therefore pushed back and Slim Twig took to the stage at 9.30." Josh Reichmann went on after that. More pictures from the show below...
