Tonight: Noble Lake / Virgin Forest

Tonight the mostly local trio, Noble Lake, croon the crowd at the Talking Head. Opening will be Virgin Forest, a Brooklyn group who feature members of Phosphorescent.

Half of Noble Lake comprise of Andy Stack and Jen Wasner, who make up the entirety of Wye Oak. Andy plays mostly upright bass for Noble Lake, and Jen is known to rock either the banjo, guitar, or harmonium. As Andy's freakish multi-instrumentalist talents are evident in Wye Oak, same goes to show for the musicians of Noble Lake. James Sarsgaard makes up 1/4 of the outfit, and is the band's singer and songwriter.

The sound is a bit different from the lush and beautiful noise of Wye Oak , as Sarsgaard's country twang and rootsy Americana take the forefront. The trio released its first full length titled Heyday via Creative Capitalism last summer. And in related release news, word on the street is that Andy and Jen are currently working on their next Wye Oak LP for Merge.

The show tonight at the Talking Head starts around 8 and is similarly priced at 8 dollars. Young Sir Jim is also opening the affair. Expect beards, lots of them.
