Josh's Adventure

We were DEAD, but now we’re ALIIIIIIIVE!!! So lucky to be opening for our talented and dear friend, Josh Starmer. He is releasing his new CD, Germany Zulu Josh Starmer Germany Zulu, and will celebrate this release at The Cave in downtown Chapel Hill on Friday April 17th. The DLs will play a short set and will begin between 9 and 9:30 and Joshy will sink his teeth into it around 10:30pm.  According to Mr. Starmer, there will be some prizes. Oh, goody! Hope to see you this Friday!

Love, Mer

Drowning at Driade June 21st 8pm!

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Driade2013The Drowning Lovers are happy to announce a Friday-night affair at Caffe Driade. We’re meeting up with cellist, Josh Starmer, who will be rocking it solo with -rumour has it- some tap dancers. (No, not lap dancers. But who knows what will happen, really?!)

Perhaps John will play a short set and then Paul and Meredith will play a short set and then Josh will play a short set, and then the drowning of the lovers will begin.

Come hang out in the old woods, ya’ll!

Prypyat & Drowning ♥ers @ Open Eye

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

PRYPYAT (pri-pee-at) PosterPrypyat_DLsis 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.
