The Sweetback Sisters
April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10.00
Technically speaking, The Sweetback Sisters come from Brooklyn, but philosophically, they hail from a parallel universe, one where country music history zigged instead of zagged.
It’s been ten years since the Sweetback Sisters first began forging their own sonic universe, and on their new album, ‘King Of Killing Time,’ they push their sound into more adventurous and playful territory than ever before. Centered around the charismatic, airtight harmonies of Emily Miller and Zara Bode, the band mixes infectious originals with unexpected interpretations of everything from George Jones to Gram Parsons. Hints of jazz and ragtime flesh out the Sisters’ unique brand of classic country, as Miller, Bode, and their remarkably versatile band conjure up a singular blend of heart, humor, and virtuosic musicianship.
