[ALT-FOLK] + FRI., JAN. 12
As agreeable as they are enticing, the sounds of alt-folk group Driftwood are rooted in the land, but elevated to folk-pop radio standards. The band features a masterful fiddle player and offers warm live vibes, so it would be a shame to miss the kickoff of its winter tour at Club Café. For openers, Arlo Aldo is more than worth a mention — having left its mark in the world of American alt-folk with its swirling harmonies and cathedral-esque organ — and Pittsburgh’s cowboy-pop standalone Sam Stucky is guaranteed to deliver some sweetness.
