With vocals reminiscent of Bon Iver, and an blend of keys, electric guitar and synthesized beats, Big Scary create melodic sounds in a swaying atmosphere that touches on both happy and sad emotions in an intricate way.

American singer/songwriter and poetic lyricist Joseph Arthur plays Tin Angel this evening. Known a formidable output of recordings in a short span of time, the Akron, Ohio native has collaborated with a slew of established artists over an extremely impressive career, including Peter Gabriel and R.E.M’s Michael Stipe. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist and winning performer, Arthur should not be missed. Get tickets and info on the event here. Watch “I Used to Know How to Walk on Water” below.

Indie rock/ orchestral pop ensemble Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s will play First Unitarian Church tonight in support of their recently released album Slingshot to Heaven. The dreamy sounds of Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s is reminiscent of The Decemberists and Conor Oberst, and the self-produced, self-recorded Slingshot to Heaven acts as a spacey, “coming of age” lullaby.
