Tonight: Dovekins at the Oriental
Dovekins (due tonight at the Oriental tonight with Brethren Fast) is a hard band to pin down. The group employs bluegrass instrumentation, gospel-style singing and a little bit of psychedelic folk rock to create its own unique sound. Each member's contribution is key to making the group work as a whole, but there is no doubt banjo player Laura Goldhamer's insightful wails are what make the family-style band stand out.
Live, Dovekins' shows are just as much about the band as they are about the fans -- dance circles, waltzing couples and energetic waves of hand-clapping and hollering can be seen and heard coming from the devoted crowd. This show is 21 and up, and admission is free. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the bands start at 9 p.m.
