Angelo de Augustine headlines Sunday matinee show at the Bartlett
No need to debate where to go for brunch on Sunday; the Bartlett has it covered.
Well, at least the drinks portion of brunch.
Every ticket purchased for the Bartlett’s matinee show with Angelo de Augustine on Sunday comes with a mimosa, alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
“We were already booked this night but we are obsessed with Angelo de Augustine’s music so we had to make it happen,” Bartlett staff wrote on Facebook.
De Augustine released his second album “Swim Inside the Moon” in August of last year.
The album came about after a bout of whooping cough caused the Los Angeles-based singer to lose his voice for several months.
The illness gave de Augustine time to focus on songwriting and his ideal recording setup, which ended up being in his bathtub, with an analog reel-to-reel in his bedroom.
Throughout the “Swim Inside the Moon” recording process, de Augustine was looking for “a sound behind the voice.”
“I noticed that when you sing off a reflective surface you hear two voices,” he said in a press bio. “One is the representation of yourself and the other is similar to a shadow that follows the sound. I was compelled to isolate that voice and bring it more to the front of the songs because in many ways I feel more connected to and comforted by that voice following me.”
If you stick around town after de Augustine’s show, head back to the Bartlett at 8 p.m. to see Portland’s Blitzen Trapper, which released “Wild and Reckless” in November.
In September, Seattle’s Sub Pop Records will release a deluxe edition of the band’s 2008 album “Furr” to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The expanded edition will feature the original album and 12 rare and previously unreleased songs.
