Wovenhand @ 930 – 10/9

Wovenhand is coming to the 930 on Thurs, Oct. 9 and will be joined by Louisville’s Interstates. The press release says it best…

The grandson of a Nazarene preacher, David Eugene Edwards dropped out of a Colorado high school to play music. He is known for an immense personal humility—a contrast to his stark lyrics about the wretched state of humanity, although he is the first to tell you that he is singing to himself. Wovenhand’s latest record, Ten Stones, renders a beautiful encounter with healing, suffering and sorrow. “Not one stone/ atop another will stand,” sings Edwards, as creation lies motionless, paralyzed in the canyon of time. Then, as all great artists await a time when the pinnacle of their craft will be caught up in greater glory, he sings: “This weary melody ends/ The host of heaven descends/ Down beneath this bleeding ground/ Behold the lamb.”

Edwards’ powerful and authoritative musicianship (formerly with 16 Horsepower, now as Wovenhand), coupled with lyrics that hit the mark with unflagging consistency, results in compelling music that is brooding, dark, and yet maintains a tight grip on hope itself.

Tickets for the show cost $10 plus a $1 processing fee if you buy it online or at Ear X-tacy. The show starts at 8pm.

Jamie Barnes is excited about the show, so to show his excitement, he’s made a little video…
