Converge Radio and Xpeditions Bar and Coffee are proud to present three upcoming shows.
Humbird (March 28th)
Bio: Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars. Currently based in Minneapolis MN, Humbird’s companion EPs “Elsewhere” and “Where Else” were released in summer 2017. Both collections explore themes of the human body within various environments and showcase minimalist soundscapes, looping, and extended vocal techniques to create an otherworldly, though familiar sound rooted in folk music traditions.
Now, moving between intimate solo performances, improvised duo sets and full band arrangements, the songs and stories continue to evolve, shift and flourish. Humbird’s debut full length album is set to be released in 2019.
Annie Mack (April 11th)
Bio: Annie Mack has built a reputation for writing meaningful, relate-able and inspirational songs. Live, she delivers her songs with power, soul and conviction.
A dynamic vocalist and charismatic performer, she takes the audience on a journey; from velvet lined melodic depths to exciting, gritty, full bodied church hollers.

Elvessa (May 23rd)
Bio: Elvessa is introspective ghost rock laced with mystery, lost in ether, featuring Elizabeth Weidner (guitar, vox, songwriting), Kari Gallagher (violin, backup vox), and Joe Decker (bass guitar). Expect dry, bittersweet freak folk with undertones of dark chocolate and tobacco, a delicate blend of smooth and biting aromas with a lingering finish. Let’s get weird.
