Simon Joyner / False Figures / Raw Honey / Idle Ray

Life Like Tapes proudly presents the return of Simon Joyner.
Active since the early ’90s, this massively influential singer/songwriter is the real deal. Doing it without the aid of publicists, booking agents, managers and the like the entire time, Joyner’s artistry is front and center on songs that spill out like parking lot poetry and haunted Midwestern landscapes. Somewhere between Blonde On Blonde era Dylan surrealism and the bevy of artists he directly informed (Angel Olsen, Bright Eyes, Beck circa “One Foot In The Grave”), Joyner’s songs breathe in heavy sighs and silent revelations. Absolutely not to be missed.

False Figures and Raw Honey provide more excellence and the night opens up with a short set from new project Idle Ray.

This is an all ages event and costs only $5.00. If you’d like to ensure a spot ahead of time, please DM me (Fred) and we can work something out!
