Brian Elmquist of The Lone Bellow with Hugh Masterson
The Basement
Wed, Jul 11 9:00 pm


Brian Elmquist Of The Lone Bellow: Elmquist is a roots rock singer-songwriter. He is a Georgia original, a Nashville noisemaker and now a Brooklyn urbanite. He pens tender laments and angry regrets about hometown ghosts, front porches, empty guns and bankrupt hearts. His hero is Springsteen. He studies Bono and follows Neil Young. He can easily coast between roles. He can be the dealer, the gambler, the captain, the captive, the lover and the fighter. He'll fight against adversity, but for the girl he loves. He celebrates the small things and leaves the past behind. He's walking toward the sun to meet you at the crossroads. From there, heaven only knows. Hugh Masterson: Hugh Masterson gives a Midwestern feel to country music songwriting. After leaving his hometown of  Butternut in Northern Wisconsin, he moved to Milwaukee for college. The transition proved to be dramatic, as his jaw was broken in two places after being mugged, and his house shot through five times. However, he persisted with odd jobs, working as a janitor at a bowling alley and as an apartment painter.
