Tonight, Broad Street Books' Red and Black Cafe is offering a free indie folk concert featuring The Grimm Generation, "Dinner With Grimm."
The 6:30 p.m. show will feature independent singer/songwriters Carmen Champagne, Jason P. Krug and Lys Guillorn, a self-described alt-psych-folk troubadour, to celebrate the release of their new album, "Coming Home."
Coming Home is a collaboration between The Grimm Generation and Adam Hagymasi (Daytonville Express), who recorded it in his home studio and played most of the instruments. The noir suburban tale telling of The Grimm Generation is matched by Adam’s layered, deep tracks.
The EP deals with the themes of sex and loss with songs that speak of unspeakable crimes [Blink, I'm Gone], base desires [Your Body Betrays You], unwanted homecomings [Coming Home], questions of “what could have been” [Brooklyn Good] and the only act that matters [Come to Me].
Hagymasi’s production and playing frames these tales in reverb guitars, minimal drums and careful arrangements which has created songs that are quirkier and more expansive in their storytelling style.
If you can't catch them tonight, the band's next show is Oct. 6 at the Independisc Anniversary Bash at Cafe Nine, New Haven, 9 p.m.
