Omaha folk legend Simon Joyner
is travelling around the country on his Living Rooms & Discrete Spaces Tour—turning regular folks' houses into makeshift theatres to support his new album, Out Into the Snow
—and next week, he's coming to play a living room in Portland.
Joyner plays bittersweet country-tinged ballads that sound a bit like a drunken Conor Oberst
(or rather, Conor Oberst sounds like a sober Simon Joyner—the Bright Eyes singer regularly cites him as his biggest influence).
He'll be playing at a house in Southeast on Wednesday, July 22, supported by local Dustin Hamman (Run On Sentence) and Iowan singer Sam Locke Ward. Tickets are $10, but space is limited, so to secure a spot on someone's old couch to watch this intimate, lamp-lit gig, visit this site and snag one early
