The Suitcase Junket in Warren

Posted

The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one-man band. From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, Amherst's The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound. Performing on a tube amped dumpster guitar and instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage - his is the road worn voice rising over original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance hall festivity. Warren and Cape Cod-based indie folk artist Jodie Treloar Sampson will open the show.

WHERE: Hope & Main, 691 Main St., Warren
WHEN: Friday, Dec. 15; 7:30 p.m.
COST: $18 in advance, $20 at the door
