Show Preview - Vandaveer - 10.1.11 - Brillobox - Pittsburgh - Concert Preview

Vandaveer are performing this Saturday, 10/1 at the Brillobox. We featured this duo back in May of this year when they played at the same venue. Let me say, do yourself a favor and see this duo life. You will not be disappointed. The band is touring behind their third album entitled Dig Down Deep which was released this past April. Mark Charles Heidinger is the musician behind the band who currently resides in the Washington, DC area.

 From his bio:

Vandaveer offers up melodic Americana with a revolving cast of characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, singing the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden. Heidinger and Guerin met during the heyday of DC’s folk collective known as The Federal Reserve. Informal collaborations in that environment soon galvanized, with Guerin’s voice becoming a reliable fixture in Vandaveer, both on record and on stage.

We recorded the last time they were here:

From their press:

Vandaveer’s third full length, Dig Down Deep, offers a collage of churning rhythms, steady guitar and ringing piano beneath tales of war and impermanence, loss and love. The music serves as both mirror and platform for Vandaveer’s stories—booming bass drum during moments of turmoil and conquest, throaty cello in moments of peace and predation, trembling keys in moments of uncertainty and hope. Out of the mosaic rise two voices in perfect harmony narrating and navigating the lives of Vandaveer’s characters with confidence and grace. 

If you enjoy the music they are 10x better live. Tickets are only $7 and can be found here
