Ezza Roses music flows effortlessly into one ear and out the other, leaving behind melodic traces. Her beautifully delicate, mournfully classic voice floats amongst the loosely bound, misty particles in the air and our minds and fills the cracks with a sound that’s chilling and comforting, all at once.
Whiskerman is a rock-and-roll overture to the great unraveling. Over the last 7 years, the Oakland band has developed an underground reputation for tackling the sublime with their ambitious songwriting, thunderous stage show, and acute lyricism. They have since emerged as an engine of the Bay Area’s revitalized psychedelic and festival scenes. Frontman Graham Patzner, who will crow like a medicine show preacher, and then coo you into the arms of his lovesick eternity, might be a spitfire protege of the underworld himself, though he will remind you that there is no rapture without artistry. On the surface, this is splendid rock-and-roll, rooted in the classic, psych, and glam rock tradition, but the pageantry and chaos of Whiskerman’s performances will leave you describing an experience more than a sound.
Catch Whiskerman and Ezza Rose at Fort George Brewery and Public House on Thursday, November 18th from 6-8 pm – rain or shine. In the Courtyard if the skies are clear, or in the Lovell Building should it rain. All ages welcome and never a cover!
