THurd THursday Presents: Rattle & Megan Reilly

Stop by the City Reliquary this THurd THursday, June 17th, for a musical concert of civic proportions. Performing on our backyard stage, not one, not three, but two luminaries of the Brooklyn lo-hi musical ephemera, to perfectly fit our quirky museum categories. Both acts will be performing to suit your musical ears, and as always, Brooklyn Beer will be served nicely chilled. $5 suggested donation, doors open at 7 and the music gets going promptly at 8.

Rattle is a new band comprising Pat Gubler (guitar), Greg Peterson (guitar), Sue Garner (bass) and Rick Brown (drums and electronics). Its members, all of whom also sing, have played in NY for many years in various groups including The Scene Is Now, P.G. Six, Run On, Batillus, The Shams, Metal Mountains and V-Effect. Rattle uses the classic instrumentation of rock music but the result has touches of ambient electronics and Appalachian harmonies, hints of folk-rock and inspirations as varied as black metal and Haitian rara.

Memphis native Megan Reilly’s Let Your Ghost Go “comes on like a fever-dream, slow, hot and swooning, brimming with love and death and sadness and joy…a voice both hazy and powerfully direct…a wonderful, timeless sophomore record of quiet, haunting country pop.” (Other Music) It received 4-Stars from Uncut magazine. “Drop dead gorgeous, melancholy folk-pop of the highest order.” (No Depression) “… as if Dolly Parton sang in her sleep and occasionally wailed in terror at a nightmare.” (Dallas Observer) She’s currently at work on her third album.
