Michigan singer, songwriter, and producer Fred Thomas celebrates the re-release of his album Sink Like a Symphony, originally issued in 2006 but available on vinyl again for the first time in over a decade. Thomas has been making music independently for years, playing in countless bands (notably indie pop group Saturday Looks Good To Me, mercurial 4AD signees His Name Is Alive, Detroit summer punks Tyvek, and many more) but is always at his most intense and impassioned in solo form.
Shelley Salant, a.k.a. Shells will play a set of lucid-dreaming solo electric guitar to open the early show. Salant and Thomas have been friends and collaborators for the better part of the last 20 years, and her accomplishments in D.I.Y. circles as a touring musician, promoter, and general keeper of the culture are far too numerous to list.
