You've heard of The National, which consists of brothers Bryce and Aaron Dessner. Bryce Dessner is also a member Clogs, whose new album (The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton) features not just Sufjan Stevens but also Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond. And, we might add, quite prominently.
To promote the new album Clogs will playing selections from the record this weekend in Minneapolis, and of course Shara will be performing as well. Tickets are $22 and shows are on Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th. Info here. And on Saturday at 5:30pm you can also catch a discussion of the musicians' art with the Brothers Dessner and Shara Worden at the Weisman Art Museum. That event is free but you should RSVP – details are here.
