Paul Fonfara of Painted Saints to be playing Fort Collins on December 29th. Go see him. [Dec. 22nd, 2008|09:30 pm]
Schwa Love
Paul Fonfara of Painted Saints will be playing a show at Road 34 on Monday, December 29th, (along with Stella Luce which includes Brett and Alana of The Slow Crash) and I encourage anyone who is in Northern Colorado to go. Paul is an accomplished musician who is a former member of local favorites DeVotchka and The Denver Gentlemen. He puts on a hell of a solo show, playing songs with multiple instruments that he will sample from and mix together on stage, including guitar, clarinet, bandoneon, and accordion in a unique mix of spaghetti western and klezmer music. Since I am incapable of writing well about music, I'll quote what another reviewer said at hotindienews.com:
If Disney's Fantasia grew up and released an album, if Golgo Bordello mellowed out and acquired an orchestra, if Morrisey was actually as deep as he wants to think he is, you would have somewhat of an idea of the sound of The Painted Saints.

This reviewer is not exaggerating. THIS IS SCIENTIFIC FACT!

His music makes me weep like a little girl, but granted, so does a weak punch to my shoulder and that episode of Futurama about Fry's dog.

Anyway, go see Paul and Stella Luce. You shan't be disappointed. I never say that about live music, but this time, I make an exception.

Dude, it's cool.
Not only does the episode about his dog make me cry, but the one about his nephew, who was named after him, does too.

What about the end of "The Luck of the Fryish," or the Pizzicato 5-montage from "Leela's Homeworld?"

I will definitely be there. BTW for those of you who don't know Stella Luce is the new project by Alana Rolph, the leader singer of The Slow Crash. I'm excited, I haven't seen Paul play in about a year, he's a pretty amazing musician.
