Folkal Point: Howard Markman & Acoustic Palookaville WHEN: Saturday, Sept 1 - 7:30 pm TICKETS: $10 in advance/$12 at door /$10 full-time students with ID Get Tickets
Looking at the world through soot-covered glasses, Palookaville slides through a variety of musical moods with uncommon grace and biting humor, combining pop sensibilities with twangy guitars, mandola, upright bass and a quirky, delightfully cynical worldview.
Palookaville tackles American musical forms with just the right mix of familiar touchstones and new ideas, infusing rootsy Americana with lyric sensitivities and insights more commonly associated with folk and jazz.
Howard Markman, Andy Thurston, Celeste Thurston, Thom Huntington, and Jim Hannah deliver a sound that is both fresh and familiar. Great players, great tunes, kitschy and cool as a neighborhood diner but with a much more tantalizing menu.
