Tonight we have the distinct privilege of presenting the tour kickoff for our friends Krist and Sarah in East Nashville for what will surely be the most ‘punk’ Cause A Scene show to date. We’ve been big fans of their music for some time now and can’t wait to see what they have in store for us tonight. Come out to The Owl Farm (811 Dickerson, Unit 1, Nashville, TN 37027) for the show. Music starts at 8:00. The show is free, but we encourage a $5-$10 donation to help the artists as they begin their tour. Hope to see you all there!
Krist (Yards) and Sarah (Gardening, Not Architecture) have been friends for over a decade, first working together to host and promote shows in Madison, WI. Over the years, they have collaborated as both entrepreneurs and musicians, working together through their organizations Self Group and Earn It Yourself, as well as touring together with their various musical projects.
In 2012, as the world is coming to an end, they have decided to reunite one last time to tour their old midwestern stomping grounds, and visit the east coast once more before the Apocalypse. Both strong proponents of the do-it-yourself philosophy, Krist and Sarah have decided to co-book the tour themselves, focusing on house shows and smaller, DIY spaces.
“A cauldron of methodical yet deeply moving instrumental rock that combines forlorn piano motifs with gradually intensifying, swirling drones and portentous orchestral swells.” writes the Seattle Stranger of the release that initially spurred Yards, Southerly’s “Champion of The Noisy Negativists”. Though not entirely instrumental, Yards directs its focus on a wider range of compositional concepts. Creating in one track what could be a dark contrasting club hit to a simplistic conceptual piece based on select subject matter.
