Don’t Miss Dry the River Tomorrow Night at The Bowery Ballroom

September 19th, 2012

Peter Liddle (guitar and vocals) originally started Dry the River as a solo project. But wanting a bigger sound, he invited Will Harvey (violin and keys), Scott Miller (bass and vocals), Matt Taylor (guitar and vocals) and Jon Warren (drums and percussion) to join him in making what he calls “folkie gospel music played by a post-punk band.” Appearances at Glastonbury and SXSW last year earned Dry the River (above, doing “Bible Belt” on a boat in an Amsterdam canal for Face Culture) comparisons to Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons. And following the release of their debut LP, Shallow Bed, this past spring, the English five-piece has hit the road. See them, alongside Houndmouth and Yellowbirds, tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom.
