The Ragbirds at Founders wsg: Wire in the Wood-Ebird’s Birthday Bash

Thursday, February 1, 2018, 9:30pm–12:00am   [add to calendar] 2018-02-01 21:30:00 2018-02-02 00:00:00 America/Detroit The Ragbirds at Founders wsg: Wire in the Wood-Ebird’s Birthday Bash Join us as we return to Founders for a FREE SHOW to celebrate Erin’s Birthday! Thursday night Dance Party!! 9:30pm / FREE / 21+ wsg: Wire in the Wood ---------------------------------------------------------- For years, "home" was a place The Ragbirds rarely visited. The band's music — a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global rhythms and songwriting styles influenced from all over the world — was as broad as their audience, which stretched from the group's hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the shores of Osaka, Japan (where they scored a Number One pop hot with the song "Book of Matches"). Show by show, in venues ranging from rock clubs and performing arts centers to festivals encompassing everything from bluegrass to electronica, The Ragbirds developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music. Written and recorded in the wake of the birth of co-founders Erin Zindle and Randall Moore’s first child, ‘The Threshold & The Hearth’ — the band's fifth studio album, out NOW on Rock Ridge Music - adds another dimension to the band's catalog. It's an album that explores the ways in which love and family relationships can weather the storms of life, year after year. An album that asks questions. An album that offers an answer, too: hope. Released three years after 2013's We Belong to the Love, a live album that shone a light on the band's punchy, positive-minded stage show, The Threshold & The Hearth is louder and livelier than anything they've done before. The guitar solos, played by Erin’s brother T.J. Zindle, point to a longtime appreciation for rock and roll. The deep-seated grooves, performed by the three-piece rhythm section of drummer Jon Brown, percussionist Moore and bassist Dan Jones, mix punch with precision. And Zindle's conceptual storyline for the album — a make-believe tale of two lovers who meet, fall in love and spend the next 20 years dealing with the joys and struggles that come with any long-term relationship — turn The Threshold & The Hearth into a universal album that appeals to anyone looking to forge a home out of the chaos of everyday life. With influences ranging from Paul Simon to Peter Gabriel, the band turned to Grammy-nominated producer Jamie Candiloro for his help on the album. Candiloro's influences were similarly wide-ranging, with a resume that included credits on albums by R.E.M., Willie Nelson, the Eagles and Ryan Adams. Together, the group captured the spunk and spirit of a Ragbirds show, with Zindle's new daughter serving as an inspiration.

Wire in the Irish Hills

Thursday, April 19, 2018, 7:30pm–10:00pm   [add to calendar] 2018-04-19 19:30:00 2018-04-19 22:00:00 America/Detroit Wire in the Irish Hills This is a fundraiser for the Brooklyn Food Pantry. Any donation will be accepted for admission. Every little Bit Helps! We believe that children should NOT have to go to bed or school hungry. Wire in the Wood is a prog-bluegrass locomotive pulling a lonesome psych-folk boxcar and a swingin' Hot-Club caboose. Billy Kirst's drama-infused original compositions meld with an eclectic selection of traditional swing and folk covers to create the tracks for this kinetic train. "This band has quickly become one of my favorites to see live. It will not take long and you will understand why I say this." —Rick Jerry's Pub & Restaurant, 650 Egan Hwy, Brooklyn, MI, 49230 Wire in the Wood
