Julia Anrather & Grand Kid
Friday - July, 13 @ 6:00pm
Brooklyn’s Grand Kid is the eclectic alternative rock, soul, and roots project of singer, songwriter, guitarist Dan Kleederman. Growing up channeling electric blues heroes while equally mystified by the songwriting craft and experimentation of the Beatles, music has always felt to him like disparate pieces asking to be put together. Often compared to the Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, and Jeff Buckley, Grand Kid dives headfirst into the world of love and loss through its unavoidable highs and lows - journeying all the way from otherworldly psychedelia to rootsy lullaby. No matter where the music goes, it carries with it an arresting beauty and warm intimacy.
Often supported by a high flying trio, Grand Kid also performs solo with vintage drum machines, organs, and brass by way of a Panasonic tape player. Grand Kid will release a live EP/video called “We’ll Be” later this summer with a full album coming in 2019. Follow him @grand.kid on instagram to stay updated on tour dates and upcoming releases.
