Schwervon! + Paleface + Folkicide @ Davey’s Uptown Ramblers Club/ Kansas City, MO / Nov. 14th / 9pm
PALEFACE: "a neo-folk icon" (The Flagpole, Athens GA) is currently on tour as a three piece band in support of his Ramseur Records follow-up, One Big Party. The band celebrated the release with a special guest-performance alongside The Avett Brothers at NYC's Radio City Music Hall, followed by US and Europe tours. And soon after, PASTE Magazine premiered "PALEFACE: The Making Of One Big Party", a short documen
tary which follows the band as they record their new album and travel across the US, including clips from live performance in NYC and Boston's The House of Blues. Paleface has released over a dozen records including two major label releases, and he's collaborated and performed on three albums by The Avett Brothers. He's also influenced and inspired a wide range of musical acts, from electropopsters YACHT, to Grammy Award recipients Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches / Juno), and Beck who calls Paleface “a big influence on my early work” on Annie Leibovitz’s book American Music. At the moment, Paleface is in the process of writing a new album to record later in the year, and in the meantime he's self-released Multibean Bootleg Vol.3, a collection of raw demos, live performances and outtakes.
"Paleface's One Big Party is one big sonic shit-eatin' grin. Joyous, carefree and catchy as hell, this record is a perfect and cost-effective antidote to whatever ails ya" My Old Kentucky Blog
