Good Corners, Jonathon Millionaire at Dark Horse ArtBar

August 5 @ 10:00 pm - 11:59 pm

A promotional photo of the band Jonathon Millionaire shows three band members sitting down against the wall of a plastic space, with guitars and sound-treatment panels in the background.

Lawrence Gann played drums for the sparkling, dry-witted Madison band Labrador, but lately he’s shifted his attention to a solo project called Jonathon Millionaire. Gann’s husky voice (somewhere in the neighborhood of Jawbreaker’s Blake Schwarzenbach, but less grizzled) gives his songs a downtrodden heft on the album Unlimited Growth Potential, forming a sharp contrast with the bright layers of guitar and driving, almost playful drums and bass. Gann refines that approach further on a recent single, “Chrysalis,” a song that captures the feeling of being stuck in place but still offers hope for what’s ahead. For this show, the live version of Jonathon Millionaire will be Gann on guitar and vocals, Ben Strohbeen on bass, and Craig Hoffmann on drums. Opening things up is Good Corners, the duo of John Hitchcock and Ryan Lansing, which uses pedal steel, synths, and eerie samples to create entrancing landscapes of spacey twang. This show also celebrates the opening of Pushed To Abstraction, a group art show of work from Hitchcock, Samie Laine Scott, Jason Levy, and Evan Bradbury. Scott Gordon

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 


But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.
