Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesJoin Us This Saturday at Evanston SPACE for Dolly Varden and Frisbie!

The CHIRP Radio 2020 concert calendar kicks off in Evanston on Saturday January 11 when we welcome local bands Dolly Varden and Frisbie to Evanston SPACE for an all-ages show at 8:00pm.

"For 18 years Dolly Varden has been wowing and charming audiences with the warm, sublime interplay of Steve’s and Diane’s voices (yes, they’re still married); the emotional potency, intelligence and undeniable melodicism of Steve’s songwriting; and the supple backing of supremely versatile guitarist Mark Balletto and the limber rhythm section of bassist Mike Bradburn and drummer Matt Thobe as the band encompasses rock, folk, country and R&B/gospel influences to create something solely its own. From the 1995 debut, Mouthful of Lies, through The Dumbest Magnets (2000) and The Panic Bell (2007), Dolly Varden has built a sizable, loyal fan base, and now listeners new and old can reap the considerable rewards of For a While. It’s an album that feels like it couldn’t have been created at any other point in the band’s history."

"Frisbie's debut, The Subversive Sounds of Love, was hailed as 'the power-pop album of the year." (Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune)...now the band has completed New Debut, a 40-minute burst of imaginative and affecting songs...In short, New Debut will kick you in the head and the pants."

Evanston SPACE is located at 1245 Chicago Avenue Evanston, IL 60202. Tickets are available at the venue's Web site.
