ITASCA - "Aloneness is a state of being," Townes Van Zandt once observed, "Whereas loneliness is a state of feeling." On her second proper album Unmoored by the Wind, Kayla Cohen, a.k.a. Itasca, spends much of her time navigating between those two states. Her folk-derived style is one that seems necessarily borne from many hours spent in solitude and quiet contemplation. And though this solitude has clearly given Cohen the space to perfect her instrumental craft and to revel in the rhythms of the natural world, there is also a subtle tug of melancholy coursing through many of these songs that speaks to a sense of displacement and a yearning for community or connection. Cohen’s delicate and expert fingerpicking places her work somewhere in the area of American Primitive. But on Unmoored by the Wind, her vocals are an even bigger draw. She has a voice that is at once striking and vaguely familiar, the type of voice that will send folk-nerds to rack their memories to decide which other obscure or semi-obscure singer she most resembles. (I’m going with Bridget St. John and/or Sibylle Baier for now.) - Matthew Murphy
This is Itasca's second performance at Trinosophes and her first backed by a band.

DAVID KENNETH NANCE - "Goldilocked hero and Unread Records cassette veteran, Nance recently stepped out of his burned out basement in Omaha, Nebraska and steeped himself in the city of angels, provoking collective grief and inciting small riots in the hearts of the house show universe here. Rocker and singer-songwriter from the catchy, shambolic mess called The Prairies, he also plays lead guitar and shouts in Simon Joyner’s band, the Ghosts." - Static-Age

SHELLS - Meditation via guitar.

$8, all ages, doors at 8 pm.
