FAUN FABLES have been travelling the music club, grass roots and festival circuits in North America and Europe since 1998, releasing to date eight records on DRAG CITY. Dawn McCarthy’s writing and voice, which THE NEW YORKER described as “one of the more compelling instruments in contemporary music,” can open hearts and minds with a whisper to a rallying battle cry into her mythical world, animated by the adventurous musicality of her partner Nils Frykdahl (Free Salamander Exhibit, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) with electric guitars, bass, flutes, and a rich, weathered voice. They return to the road this Summer 2022 with a live show embellished by their daughters joining them on vocals, percussion and dance.
Hailing from the singularly vibrant musical hotbed known as Chicago, CHEER-ACCIDENT has been a creative, vital force in rock music for over 20 years. They constantly strive to surprise their audiences and themselves through relentless reinvention. From dreamy pop to angular art-rock, CHEER-ACCIDENT strikes a powerful balance between personalized and unique studio wizardry and the visceral excitement of a well-honed, explosive live rock band. The band is a quintet at its foundation, fronted by Carmen Armillas, whose powerfully emotive voice has recently led CHEER-ACCIDENT down the path of even deeper connectedness with their already-loyal audience. Presenting itself in various configurations, the band’s core personnel is frequently augmented by some of Chicago’s finest musicians. Their body of work is unparalleled in its ambition and originality, and their two latest releases, “Fear Draws Misfortune” and “No Ifs, Ands or Dogs” (both on Cuneiform Records), demonstrate how the band continues to improve with each passing year.
