Good Corners, Jonathon Millionaire at Dark Horse ArtBar
August 5 @ 10:00 pm - 11:59 pmFree
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
