Folk Family Revival with Watching for Foxes at Double Wide
When: Thursday, May 11
Where: Double Wide
Times: Doors: 8:00 pm | Show: 9 pm
Armed with a sound that mixes the rootsy stomp of the Southern states with the trippy swoon of the West Coast, Folk Family Revival make music for rock clubs and rodeos, dive bars and honky-tonks, or campfires and cantinas. A throwback to a time when Southern rock and psychedelic music dominated the airwaves, they may be best described as a psychedelic folk-
country rock and roll band, but they’re not wild about labeling their sound. They’d rather let the music do the talking.
Watching for Foxes is an apparition, an ode to tales of yore coming to vibrant yet elusive life here and now. Bending biography by infusing existential banter and folk motifs, the band is constantly pushing boundaries both sonically and lyrically in the pursuit of the portrayal of true feeling. Like a stack of old letters hiding deep in a drawer, tattered and rumpled from frantic use, the stories Watching for Foxes tells are equal parts cosmic myth and divine truth; memories you only unearth when you need to laugh, or cry, or on a rainy day lit up by a candle flame’s pyre, or on the day that your home is bleeding and on fire.
