Tonight’s Concert Pick: Alec Stewart at Bourbon and Branch
Haunting Philadelphia singer-songwriter Alec Stewart plays Bourbon and Branch tonight. Rooted in the blues, Stewart’s recordings take a deconstructionist approach, bathed in roomtone and a rumbling amplifier, free of the instrumental wankery and overglossed production of mainstream blues. Think of it like Songs: Ohia, or old Phosphorescant, but definitely think about catching it live. Stewart shares the bill tonight with Anna May and James Hearne, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
