Great minds think alike, and in this case, you have an entire crew of like-minded artists who love working together. Everything simply fell into place after just one rehearsal.
Songwriter Dana Falconberry and folk/post-rock group Some Say Leland wrote a couple of new songs in practically no time at all, and both were recorded the following day. They’re being released on a new split 7-inch vinyl, After, featuring an artwork collaboration by Falconberry and Some Say Leland songwriter Dan Grissom, as a project presented by the Annie Street Arts Collective on the Punctum Records label. It really is the perfect match; both artists are known for some rather beautiful, engaging compositions, but their fans know they’ve been longtime collaborators on various other projects, and have played several shows together.
Falconberry and Some Say Leland are celebrating the release of their new vinyl with a show tonight at the Cactus Cafe, at 24th and Guadalupe Sts. in the Texas Union. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 8:30 p.m. Get there early for good seats; the room may fill up pretty quickly for this show. Very recommended.
