From Graves to Caves

March 30th, 2011

When his previous band, Pretty Girls Make Graves, called it quits in 2007, guitarist Derek Fudesco joined together with former Cobra High drummer Marty Lund and former Hint Hint singer Pete Quirk to start a new band, the Cave Singers. This is rock music with a folk bent (think: Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie). And the Seattle trio had enough material for their first album, Invitation Songs, within months of forming. A second disc, Welcome Joy, followed two years later, and the third, the-more-electric-than-acoustic No Witch, was released earlier this year. Why bother telling you all this? Because the Cave Singers (above, doing “Haller Lake” for Seattle’s KEXP FM at last year’s No Depression Festival) play Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night and you should go see them. Obviously.
