Something has seemed off this summer. For the longest time, I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then the other day I looked at upcoming events for DIT Kalamazoo and it all became clear: We’ve had no Milhouse porch show thus far in 2014. Weather permitting, that shall all change this upcoming Sunday.
Detroit freak folk artist Jeremy Waun is returning to Kalamazoo for the first time in a couple years. Jeremy was one of the first people to participate in a DIT Session, with his edition being the highly-collectible 3rd installment of the series. A strong voice and distinctive delivery, often melodic and hooky but at times oddball and disjointed, cause Jeremy’s music to stand out from standard singer/songwriter fare.
Justin Krolczyk also hails from Detroit. He has created a vast array of experimental sounds over the years, the kind of performer where music seems to flow effortlessly from his limbs, channeled from somewhere beyond time, space, or thought. Peep the percussion improvisation below for just a small sampling.
Kalamazoo’s recognized fingerpickin’ folk singer Axel Quinlan will also be gracing the porch to deliver a batch of his freshly-baked ditties. Quinlan is known for copious quality songwriting and, according to his bandcamp, has much in store. Check it out:
This all takes place at Milhouse on Sunday, August 17th at 8:00 p.m. Please bring some scratch to donate to the two touring artists. If we keep treating traveling performers well, we will have the benefit of them continuing to stop in our town during their ventures and performing for us. If you do not know the address of Milhouse, you can message firstname.lastname@example.org or post on the Facebook group asking for the address (recommended!): https://www.facebook.com/groups/milhouse/. Can’t wait to see you there!
