ONCE the roommate of Beck, discovered and managed by Danny Field’s (major NYC punk scene journalist, artist manager, who discovered the Ramones), who helped him get signed to Sire Records, Paleface is described by Seth Avett of The Avett Brothers, as today’s Neil Young.
McMenamin’s brings Paleface to our little neck ‘ the woods. Today’s neofolk scene has Paleface at the top o’ the heap. He recently released One Big Party, with drummer/girlfriend Monica (MO) Samalot. He’s been doing his thing since the early 90’s, was one of SXSW 2010’s 10 stand out bands, and shared the stage with Avett Bros. this past October at Radio City Music Hall.
Get to know the guy on a recent PASTE Magazine documentary in the making of One Big Party , then get out to enjoy music from an artist whose consciousness was made to give you his music. Or, save your $$$ for Reba. But then again, there’s no cover. Friday, April 15, 7pm at the Sand Trap in Gearhart.
