Big Harp at Slowdown Jr., July 8, 2011.

by Tim McMahan,

Just a quick note to remind you that Big Harp is playing tonight at Slowdown Jr., opening for ageless troubadour David Dondero (Ghostmeat Records).  Big Harp’s Saddle Creek Records debut, White Hat, is slated for release Sept 13, though you can stream the entire album right here at Tonight’s show is the closest thing you’re going to get to a Big Harp CD release show. Big Harp vocalist Chris Seseney talked about the origin of the band, which includes his wife, Stephanie Drootin, in this here Lazy-i interview from July 7. Check it out before you head to the show, which starts at 9, and will run you $10. Also on the bill, Thunder Power.

  • I know you love to tout Gus & Call as THE band from Slumber Party Records… but dang. Thunder Power is also playing the Dondero/Big Harp show.

  • Got the info from the One Percent site, which doesn’t list Thunder Power. I’ll update. Thanks!
