Jeff Andrew w/ Beastie & Mary Matheson at the Wise Lounge
April 4 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10.00
Come howl at the moon with us! The dark of winter is fading, so bring your weird self and rock out with full-band sets by these 2 veteran BC road dogs.
Jeff Andrew’s world is one of back alleys, dark shadows, highways and hauntings. The folk-noir fiddler and singer-songwriter takes a head full of ghost stories, historic ballads, protest songs and post-apocalyptic train tunes and turns it into an electrified patchwork of folk, punk, Celtic and swing.
“A backroads troubadour with a few things to say by way of nerve, viscera and hard experience…basically a raunchy Bob Dylan with blood in his teeth.” – FAME Reviews
“Think the Pogues at their most engaging, singing early Tom Waits.” – Leicester Bangs
Beastie is made of meat and bones, like most people.
Born and raised in Vancouver BC, Beastie recorded her first demo at 15 and has been a professional singer/songwriter off and on for over 15 years, with a wide variety of styles of gigs in Canada, Central America, the US and Europe. Her performance style is intimate and sincere – An often eccentrically costumed blend of old country, blues, soul, folk and heartbreak with a sense of humor. She is currently working on a new album set to be released in the coming year.
