Mother Vinegar Celebrates CD-Release With Post-moe. Set
Ashevilles Mother Vinegar has quickly become the source of much buzz. Their electrifying shows have many folks wondering what they could accomplish in a studio setting. They have been working on their self-titled debut CD in three North Carolina studios over the past six months. The thirteen tracks touch on everything from acoustic folk and Middle Eastern music to funk and heavy metal. The guitar-driven quartet is augmented at various times by sitar, melodica, trumpet and other instruments. The CD is set for release tomorrow and the band will celebrate with a night owl set at Ashevilles Grey Eagle.
Wishing to accommodate moe. fans that may be looking to continue the revelry after the middle of three nights of their New Years run (thats Friday, Dec. 30) the ever-accommodating Mother Vinegar organization has arranged for a free shuttle from The Wolfe (where moe. is performing earlier in the night) to The Grey Eagle. The shuttle will also be available to return people to The Wolfe after MVs performance. Those who will not attend moe.s show may want to come by and check out the opening set from the drum and bass duo Speedsquare, who will start shortly after 10pm.
Mother Vinegar is fronted by Karl Engelmann, a frequent Umphreys McGee collaborator and veteran of Jake Cinningers Ali Babas Tahini band, and driven by his dynamic stage presence and the searing guitar work of Tommy Dennison. They will also perform at the Main Street Cafn Sylva on January 13. _Reporting by Rob Turner _
