Born Twins features a couple of names that might be familiar to you – the latest musical incarnation of songwriters Singer Mayberry and David Lujan (Red Leaves, Bitter Birds). They’ve been in groups together since the early 2000’s, but Born Twins is their most recent endeavor, with Mayberry taking the lead on guitar and vocals. “Born Twins” is a reference to Philip K Dick‘s early-’70s existential exploration of reality and personal identity, A Scanner Darkly, in which the main character becomes aware of his mind being two distinct halves, processing information separately at the same time. For Lujan and Mayberry, Born Twins is their immersion into the fluidity of their music – moving back and forth, the journey onward while simultaneously embracing earlier influences.

Born Twins performs tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, sharing the bill with Silver Bars, and The Sour Notes’ side project Memory Keepers. The music starts at 9 p.m. Recommended.
