CANCELLED EVENT: Glenn Echo with Slow Dress

Date(s) - Tue. Mar. 31, 2020
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This event is cancelled.

Glenn Echo is an alt-folk indie project from Matt Gaydar, started in 2015. Finger style guitar, introspective lyrics, and crooning melodies make up the atmospheres of songs, creating intimate spaces for connection, reminiscent of such acts as Big Thief and Feist. Based out of Brooklyn, NY, Glenn Echo has soaked up influences from past residences, such as Nashville, TN and Northampton, MA, ultimately teaming up with engineer/producer Peter Brownlee to record an EP coming out in 2020. The project’s first single, “Overwhelm,” was featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist.

Slow Dress’ sound is as accessible as it is unnerving — an honest reflection of vocalist Katie Solomon’s thoughts on the uncertainty of life, love, and her emotions. Writing for Slow Dress, Solomon reaches to express the complexity of her often conflicting feelings. Over Bredon Jones’ intricate guitar lines, Solomon explores her fears with wrenching vocals and an evolving self-understanding – evoking the sauntering, emphatic sound and confessional lyrics of artists like Julia Jacklin and Lucy Dacus. Tackling personal and existential questions with a sprinkle of apocalyptic dread, Slow Dress navigates the contradictory nature of being human.

The mission of Arts at the Armory is to provide an inclusive and accessible venue for arts, cultural and community events, exhibitions, markets, classes and more.
