Morning Ritual // Rio Grands // Mojave Bird // 5.13

Morning Ritual // Rio Grands // Mojave Bird // 5.13

A common theme running through the lineup at Holocene Wednesday night is piano folk, but there will be a lot variety within this niche. Opening the show is Mojave Bird with her beautiful and hauntingly ambient songs. In the middle of the bill are Rio Grands. Their almost Latin influence on soft driven tunes relies on smooth rhythms and a dynamic vocalist that somehow comes across as soulful surf rock. Headlining the evening is Morning Ritual. Featuring the Shook Twins on vocals, they are rooted in folk, but have lately introduced a soft, electronic R&B element to their lively sound. These three groups would make for excellent nights of music on their own, but will be joining forces for a songwriter’s showcase Wednesday night. The show starts at 8:30 and there is an $8 cover.
