PRYPYAT (pri-pee-at) is Leah Gibson (Lost in the Trees) and Duncan Webster (Hammer No More the Fingers) and it is said that “…the two create a full and refreshing sound – rich, absorbing melodies floating over the rhythmic fingerpicking of Duncan Webster. A little sun-shiney, a little moon-lighty, sometimes nostalgic, sometimes quirky, with a hint of darkness, Prypyat will make you feel like you’ve been swept up by a cloud and dropped off into some enchanted night-meadow.”
Being paired with Prypyat for an evening of music just might bring you close to that blissed-out catharsis you’ve been needing -you know, the one that causes you to crave chocolate cake and whiskey? BYOCCAWTS*
Show begins a bit after 8pm. Who is playing first? No idea. But whatever the line-up, we aim to be a delicious pairing.
See you there.
*Bring your own chocolate cake and whiskey to share.

Pleased as punch? More so. Pleased as a punch to the ribcage of a detested nemesis who stole your beau? Getting closer! The Drowning Lovers are honored to celebrate the beautiful works of artist Jamie B. Wolcott on Sunday, May 20th at 8pm at the Carrack Gallery. See Jamie’s artwork from the 14th to the 24th with a four-day hoo-rah of musicians, theatre artists, and filmmakers! We’ll be sharing the evening with super-actor Kashif Powell of Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, and filmmaker Jim Haverkamp will be screening his film, When Walt Whitman was a Little Girl.

Swimming hats and Southern light,
