This Saturday Eureka's Shanty will host a rock extravaganza of epic proportions.
Headlining the event is Johnny Render supporting their recently released record "Rendervoux." The album combines the simplicity of songwriting found in bands like the Ramones with the vocal harmonies and the subtlety of The Carpenters. Render's songs have an easy listening feel, like a stoned version of Guided By Voices.
Moira Scar Interview and Show Preview
Ben Allen, Music Editor
This Friday, Eureka’s Shanty plays host to Bay Area duo Moira Scar. The band is Roxanna Faustus and Gamma Ray (LuLu). Both are multi-instrumentalists and create music they describe as "death-garage rock/freak-jazz/monster-wave." In addition to their often enjoyable, occasionally challenging music Moira Scar adds a unique visual aspect to their shows in the form of "creature costumes."
I asked the band a few questions to find out more about their music and live performance.
