Jeffrey Foucault & Cold Satellite
Rising stars in their respective fields and longtime friends, Jeffrey Foucault and Lisa Olstein began their collaboration at a distance. In the winter of 2007, when he was between albums and she was between books, Olstein handed Foucault a folder of unpublished poems and fragments. Guitar in hand and with a field recorder on the table, he approached each piece cold, creating songs by elision and arrangement and leaving the listener to unify the intentions of the two artists in a single experience. The result is an expansion of the notion of authorship, and an experiment in the invention of meaning. It's also rock n' roll.
With a world-class lineup that includes Foucault, Billy Conway (Morphine) on drums, Jeremy Moses Curtis (Booker T) on bass, David Goodrich (Chris Smither) on electric guitars, Alex Mccollough on pedal steel, and Hayward Williams on backing vocals, keyboards, and electric guitars, Cold Satellite weaves together strands of primitive rock, blues, R&B, and country in a modern refiguring of the nexus of poetry and song.
Opening will be Rusty Belle, a roots-rock-junk-folk trio out of Amherst, MA. They have been entertaining the masses for the past five years with their unique blend of clangy percussion, country guitar, whiskey lullabies and jump-around dance numbers, all smoothed out with a tight blend of vocal harmonies. Matt Lorenz, Kate Lorenz, and Zak Trojano each play drums (some with their hands, others with their feet) and sing out original tunes influenced by such artists as The Band, Tom Waits and Etta James, while entirely making a sound all their own. Their shows are honest, dynamic and never predictable, swinging easily from busted bluegrass to folk punk anthems to whiskey lullabies, before sending you home with a quiet "goodnight."
