Minor Poet - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Minor Poet
Minor Poet is the brainchild of Richmond, VA’s Andrew Carter, who holed up in his basement for
two months and played every instrument on Minor Poet’s debut album And How!, released by
Egghunt Records (Lucy Dacus, Eric Slick, Avers) on August 25th, 2017. Inspired by the
harmonies and sounds of classic 60’s groups the Beach Boys and the Zombies, as well as the
lo-fi auteurism of artists like the Magnetic Fields and Yo La Tengo, the resulting songs feel
neither modern nor nostalgic, but rather exist in their own little world. The lyrics weave in and
out of pondering existential crises and fixating on everyday mundanities, referencing Samuel
Beckett, Jacques Lacan, Neil Young, Sudoku, and everything in between, ultimately shrugging
at the silliness of taking it all too seriously. A stellar cast of Richmond musicians bring the songs
to life, including Noma Illmensee (Manatree, Egghunt Records), Jeremy Morris (the Mad Extras)
and Micah Head.
Queue - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Queue is an ethereal indie-rock band born out of the Washington D.C. and Philadelphia
areas. Drawing influence from the moody, guitar-driven rock specific to the late 80s/early 90s,
the band’s blending of contemporary grooves with chiming guitars and lush vocals has drawn
comparison to The National, The Smiths, and Wolf Alice. Having just released their latest
single,”Aimless Kid”, as a teaser of what's to come, Queue is back in the studio finishing up
work on their debut EP, expected later in 2018.
