Join us for a night of locally-grown original folk, rock, and beyond as Bay Area favorites 20 Minute Loop (https://www.facebook.com/20minuteloopofficial) play one of their first shows in years. This event features the "absolutely stunning...sorrowful and redeeming" original songs of Briget Boyle and the heartsprung harmonies of Iron Henry.
20 MINUTE LOOP
20 Minute Loop's Greg Giles and Kelly Atkins have been singing together for over 15 years. They've reunited with new inspiration from Kevin Seal of Griddle, to unearth a set of 20ML golden oldies and some choice gems you've yet to discover. Hear 20 Minute Loop stripped down to its foundation of seamless vocal harmonies, cinematic lyrics and topsy-turvy melodies.
Pitchfork.com describes 20 Minute Loop: "Say you've got XTC. Now subtract the TC, and pair the remainder of John Doe and Exene Cervenka with J. Robbins in a six-by-six cell haunted by Frank Black's muse, with only a Radiohead CD, a Flannery O'Connor novel, and occasional visits from the members of Seely to break the psychosis."
The newly formed trio is currently finishing up the recording of a new CD of unreleased and re-imagined songs, including performances by Nils Erickson (guitar), Darren Johnston (trumpet), Laela Peterson-Stolen (viola), Caitlin Tabancay Austin (vocals), Rebecca Seeman (wine glass organ) and Melanie DeGiovanni (accordion). Nils Erickson and Rebecca Seaman will join them at this live event!

Iron Henry came together out of love for harmony. Drawing vocal inspiration from ancient music, sacred harp spirituals, pop, and more, their orchestration could be described as quirky, folky, and eclectic. Simple songs which strive to cut through your heart-bands. Iron Henry is Caitlin T. Austin, Thomas Purtill, and Tim Silva.
