WIN TICKETS: Jenny Hval & Mark McGuire at the Chapel 4/9

Jenny Hval & Mark McGuire //
The Chapel — San Francisco
April 9th, 2014 (Wednesday) //

Former gothic metal vocalist Jenny Hval has come a long way since the 90s. Now as a singer-songwriter, Hval unsurprisingly centers her sound around expressive lyricism bathed in mellow musical beds and minimalist drone, the latter of which is a new concept from her 2013 record Innocence Is Kinky. Hval has also worked as a freelance writer, which speaks to the importance of the words she utilizes in her compositions. Jenny Hval’s live performance offers a combination of impactful poetry and suitably subdued instrumentals to let the lyricism shine.

This show at The Chapel on Wednesday is considered a co-headlining venture for good reason. Experimental solo musician Mark McGuire will play first Wednesday, likely playing cuts from his lush, kaleidoscopic 2014 record Along The Way. McGuire’s ambient sound collages are visceral and encompassing, music that could be read as both spiritual and inspirational. Along The Way is a magnificent work that deserves more attention — which you can give in person (for free maybe) by entering your name and email below.
