Drowning at Driade June 21st 8pm!

By Drowning Lover June 13th, 2013, under News

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

By Drowning Lover February 27th, 2013, under News

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.
