When: Sat., May 11 2013
pop-rock, 9 p.m. Proceeds will help support Igoe's first album recording.
Charleston-via-Charlotte band Brave Baby have been going non-stop since they played an epic record release show at the Pour House in January. That night they unleashed Forty Bells out into the world, an album for fans of earnest indie acts like the Arcade Fire and Grizzly Bear. City Paper staff writer Paul Bowers called the debut “a triumph of chiming guitars and yearning vocals,” and their shows are as grand as you can get. Since then, Brave Baby has toured the Southeast and Midwest, did a Daytrotter session, headlined big local events like Dig South and Jailbreak, and appeared on a free sampler put out by their locally based label, Hearts and Plugs. The guys are supporting local songstress Jordan Igoe, who’s hoping to fund a record of her own using the money collected at the door. Blacktop Desert, otherwise known as Johnny Delaware, also opens. —Susan Cohen SATURDAY
