The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one man band. From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, Amherst’s The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound. Performing on a tube amped dumpster guitar and instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartments worth of luggage – his is the road worn voice rising over original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance hall festivity.
Warren, RI-based singer-songwriter Jodie Treloar Sampson will open with a set of original music, blending elements of indie folk and country. Influences by such artists as Laura Marling, Camera Obscura, Sharon Van Etten and Ryan Adams, Jodie has been lending vocals to albums by Coma Coma, Six Star General, The Masons, Vertical Twin and other RI artists for years.
This show is part of the Warren Sessions presented by Common Fence Music. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7:30pm.
