The Ohio-based folk-rock quartet Southeast Engine will be rumbling into Nippertown on Tuesday night, making their area debut at Red Square in Albany. Led by principal singer-songwriter Adam Remnant, the band is touring the northeast in support of their new EP, Canaanville, and their latest full-length album, Canary, a reflection on an Appalachian family making ends meet during the our first Great Depression, with ghostly resonances to the same population’s contemporary struggles. It is, in short, a collection of songs of joy in the face of sorrow.
Although this is their first national headlining tour, Southeast Engine has been steamrolling through the Americana musical landscape for more than a dozen years, recording such acclaimed albums as 2007’s A Wheel Within a Wheel and 2009’s From the Forest to the Sea and garnering national attention while touring with such bands as Deerhoof and These United States.
Southeast Engine chugs into Red Square in Albany on Tuesday night (November 6). Doors open at 8pm, and the show is slated to begin at 8:30pm with Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned and Gordon Street. Tix are $8 in advance; $10 at the door. Patrons under 21 years old will be charged a $5 surcharge at the door per venue policy.
