Additional Information

Big Wheel and Others is CASS MCCOMBS’ seventh-and-a-half album, one that comprises twenty-two songs and marks a bold new chapter in the myth of this fascinating and singular artist. While “double album” implies bloat, prog, and concept, Big Wheel and Others is a bundle, a bindle, a hay bale, and an oil barrel of songs that brim with MCCOMBS’ gift for evocative storytelling, discerning introspection, and heartrendering melody delivered through a haze of mystery and romance. Some of the genres that are to be found in varying degrees in the songs on this album are: Road songs, rock songs, folk songs, blues songs, country songs, rhythm and blues songs, skronk non-songs, cinema songs, cult songs, poem songs, jams, and ballads – to use however you wish. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome this mythic songwriter to our stage tonight. Baltimore five-piece ARBOURETUM emerged this year with their fifth full-length, Coming out of the Fog via Thrill Jockey, building on their poetic lyrics and slow, heavy building songs that are not for those in search for a quick fix. The band has regained their maximalist tendencies, crafting languid ballads, fuzzed-out burners, and the heavier stuff that’s defined their unique, doom-laden folk-rock.
