Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds played its collective backside off last year at Awful Arthur’s Towers, as though it didn’t matter that the crowd was sparse. It was a heck of a show, and the band returns to the venue, now named Growler’s American Grill, for a show on Thursday. If you dig funk, rock and soul with deep grooves, hip horn lines and powerful vocals, you’d be foolish to miss this one. Read more, get show details.
On this podcast, we talk with lead singer Arleigh “Sister Sparrow” Kincheloe about the musical atmosphere in which she and her harmonica-playing brother, Jackson, grew up, and other fun topics. We stream music from the band’s CD, “Pound of Dirt” –”Another Ride,” “Bulldozer,” “Dirt” “Hollow Bones” and “Lasso.” “Dirt,” maybe the funniest track on a seriously funky disc, “conveys the attitude and the grittiness of the live show … it’s a very high-energy situation, and we hope you enjoy it,” she said.
