The Twilight Hours

Sun, April 22, Doors: 6:00 pm - Show: 6:30 pm - All Ages - $15  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
John Munson and Matt Wilson of the Minneapolis band The Twilight Hours grew up on opposite sides of Minnesota's Twin Cities. But the two came together as teenagers in a rock band, and they've been drawn to one another ever since. The group's primary songwriter Matt Wilson was raised in St. Louis Park where he became a fan of Elvis Costello, The Police and Bruce Springsteen. Initially, Matt had chosen to play the drums which suited his hyperactive energy. As a drummer, Matt and high school friends formed a rock group called The Panic, spending much of their high school years as under-aged performers in Minneapolis nightclubs, warming up for future luminaries Husker Du and The Replacements at Minneapolis' 7th Street Entry, and for U2 at First Avenue. Matt eventually followed his brother to college at Harvard University where they performed in bands together, including the Love Monsters, marking Matt's first turn as a songwriter and lead singer. That group won the school's Battle of the Bands earning a chance to record a 4 song 7-inch EP. Matt quit school before his senior year to learn to play guitar and to make music full time.

The Native Howl

Mon, April 23, Doors: 8:30 pm - Show: 9:00 pm - 21+ - $10  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Lead vocalists and guitarists Alex Holycross and Jake Sawicki had been friends and musicians in the same area for several years before venturing into what would result in the current lineup of The Native Howl. In the fall of 2013, primarily as a duo, they released a 6 song EP, "The Revolution's Dead." With the addition of Josh LeMieux on drums, and Mark Chandler on bass, the Howl's music has evolved into their own unique blend of rock, folk, bluegrass, alternative, and experimental genres. Throw in some keyboards, harmonica, banjo, some djembe, and you get a glimpse of the musical complexity that defines their sound. Their lyrics embody a folk-like storytelling style; the music shines through with a rustic and clean sound.

Wed, April 25, Doors: 9:30 pm - Show: 10:00 pm - 21+ - $8  Artist Website
The Vaudeville Mews presents...
Ben de la Cour is the offspring of US Poet Laureate Maxine Kumine and Groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons. De la Cour was born a Virgo but transferred to Sagittarius after his Freshman year for more playing time. He currently is touring around America as the countries' future "folk songwriter in residence" after spending most of last summer banishing himself to the desert, maintaining a strict diet of pistachios, peyote, and diet Snapple. Ben de la Cour is probably allergic to corn starch or something else weird like that...
