Blackfox Concert WSG The Yum Yum Tree and Orchid Mantis

From the event description:

Blackfox is a ragged tale told in a burned-out brothel behind an abandoned church; folk forms wrapped in wire and soaked in bourbon. The songwriting and genre experimentation of veteran multi-instrumentalist and seer of visions Stacey Cargal rides on a carpet of sound built by a collection of longtime friends. The band works a mix of garage, blues, gospel and country-inflected songs and pushes them into new sonic territories with aspects of noise and space rock.

When: Saturday, Jan. 11, 9 p.m.-Sunday, Jan. 12, 12 a.m.
Where: Atlanta Room at Smith's Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Ave. NE
Admission: $8-$10
