Nathan Moore, opens the show tonight at @theindependentsf We met Nathan about 20 years ago when our vans were simultaneously loaded up and pulling away from the High Sierra Music Festival in California. I approached him: “I caught your set. You guys are phenomenal!”(...or something). “Caught yours too.....back at ya”. He was shirtless except for a vest from a 3-piece suit. He had a rolled up smoke in his hand. “The lyrics, the songs", I said...."It was my favorite set of the weekend”. Nathan: “Yeah, we’re not fuckin’ around.” 20 years later, that comment is suspect. Since I've known him, Nathan has done a lot of fucking around--with magic, with film making, with technology, with social experiments, with politics, with recording, with people’s expectations.....but not with songwriting. When it comes to songwriting, he’s still the most articulate, clever, abstract, and direct-to-the-heart craftsman I know. I’ve seen him bring a room of people to tears and have them all laughing within the same song. His measure of humanity is as wide and as deep as the Potomac, yet he somehow finds room within the glass frame of a song to fit every last drop. He's one of my biggest inspirations, one of my dearest friends, and we are beyond thrilled to have him open for us at the Independent tonight - night 1 of our "An Album Nightly" run in San Francisco. We hope you can make it and make it early!
We'll be in Portsmouth at Prescott Park Arts Festival on June 26th! https://prescottpark.org/event/the-barr-brothers

We will perform our 3 full length albums in their entirety for three consecutive nights(The Barr Brothers on the 5th, Sleeping Operator on the 6th, and Queens of the Breakers on the 7th).
