The Milk Carton Kids
Amoeba Hollywood - March 26th @ 7:00pm
Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale celebrate their new album, The Ash & Clay (out 3/26 on ANTI- Records) with a live set and signing at Amoeba, Hollywood.
"a sweetly dazzling variation on close-harmony vocals, part Simon and Garfunkel and part Everly Brothers, with occasional acoustic prestidigitation." - The New York Times
They will host an evening of collaboration-in-song at Largo on March 27th providing musical and vocal accompaniment to performances from Joe Henry, Over The Rhine, Tom Brosseau, Ed Helms + others.
After forming in 2011, the duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan quickly built a devoted following with the simple purity of their music, touring with a host of established acts (Old Crow Medicine Show, Punch Brothers, and more), appearing on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series and charming audiences with their deadpan on-stage humor. While their most obvious musical reference is the classic folk revival sound of twin acoustic guitars and matching harmonies, the band both expands and contradicts that rich legacy with highly inventive guitar lines and their intricately interwoven vocals.
