Big Silver / Karly Driftwood (TN) / William Blackart
March 7, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$7.00
Lotta’ rock from Little Rock. Be cool, my babies!
The Virginia-born singer-songwriter eschews country music status quo and instead leans on the dark themes of life. The songs are just as much influenced by the Misfits or Danzig as they are Johnny Cash or Dolly Parton; to put a finer point on it, Karly Driftwood is a potent mixture of equal parts Sylvia Plath and The Drive-By Truckers. Even her stage name, “Driftwood” is a nod to Otis Driftwood from Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects.
Arkansas native William Blackart plays a lo-fi country brand of folk music. With lyrics described as “poetic and captivating,” vocals pegged as “rough and emotive” and guitar work called “hypnotic and spare” (Dakota Discography), his influences range from Townes Van Zandt to Leonard Cohen to The Clash.
