Sound Series: Hiss Golden Messenger
with special guest The Dead Tongues
Tuesday, 31. January 2017 | 8pm
The Warhol welcomes Hiss Golden Messenger on a tour supporting Heart Like a Levee, its latest release on Merge Records. Led by singer/songwriter M.C. Taylor and multi-instrumentalist Scott Hirsch, the Durham, NC-based band has drawn comparisons to Bill Callahan and Bonnie Prince Billy by deftly blending elements of country, folk, and sparse blues. Their songs are underpinned by the earnest lyrics of Taylor, who also lectures on folklore, authors the blog The Old Straight Track, and has contributed to a music education curriculum for Quincy Jones. The Dead Tongues (aka Ryan Gustafson) opens the show with an eclectic folk-rock set.

Sound Series: Dungen
Saturday, 18. March 2017 | 8pm
117 Sandusky St, Pittsburgh, United States
The Warhol welcomes the eclectic Swedish quartet Dungen,
who deftly blend elements of psychedelic rock, folk, free jazz,
and ambient sounds. On this occasion, the band performs its latest (and first all-instrumental) album Häxan (“The Witch”)
as the soundtrack to Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926), which is considered to be the oldest surviving full-length animated feature film. Produced by Matthias Glavå, Häxan was sequenced separately from the linear narrative of
the film.
