Best Bets: The Summer Show of Awesomeness

July 11, 2013

July 11--The Sparhawk-Parker-Garrington trio returns for a show on its home base. The members of Low and special guests play Sacred Heart Music Center at 8:30 p.m. today. The band is coming off a "Rock The Garden" performance that still is getting head-scratches and/or applause from fans, future fans and the Low curious who saw the band perform a 27-minute version of "Do You Know How To Waltz?" at the June concert, punctuating the one-song set with Sparhawk saying "Drone, not drones." Not that Low fret a "what the ..." or two, but they can be safe in knowing that Duluth fans can take it: bring on the artistic challenge.

Low recently released the Jeff Tweedy-produced album "The Invisible Way."

But don't be mistaken. This isn't a Low show; it's a collaboration of several artists, including a rare local appearance from Tim Kaiser, who takes all sorts of found objects and turns them into music-makers (a lawnmower no longer is just a lawnmower; toys that beep and blink no longer are just toys that beep and blink). Anne Le Berge (flutist, improvisor, composer) and the computer musician duo Willful Devices also play.
