They will be joined for this evening by guitarist Michio Kurihara ofJapanese psych-rock band Ghost. "[Kurihara] hasn't so much altered what they do as augmented it, often beautifully. The results are occasionally breathtaking.... rare and graceful" MOJO magazine
Adrian Crowley, a self-taught guitarist from Dublin, sings disparate songs with a deep, gentle voice, and writes touching ballads with a sensitive flair. "A satisfying and beautifully rendered collection of melancholia." Alternative Press
Toronto based Picastro are ostensibly a vehicle for singer-songwriter Liz Hysen There will be moments of heartbreaking beauty and heart-wrenching despair, made via an even more stripped down instrumentation of cello, guitar & Hysen's use of vocals more as a lead instrument than just another texture in the mix.
