The Suitcase Junket

October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz’s internationally touring, throat-singing, slide guitar playing one-man-band.

Painting with a fantastic sonic palette that includes jangly folk, fuzzed out blues and oddly textured psych rock, The Suitcase Junket makes an undeniable case for infinite curiosity as a potent antidote to jadedness and despair. He sits atop of a one-of-a-kind handcrafted percussion kit compiled of found materials, tears into a metal body guitar retrieved from a dumpster, and sings about characters in various states of reverie: leaning on jukeboxes, loitering on dance floors, lying on the bottoms of empty swimming pools in the sun. Keenly aware of the chaos of life, he meets it with joyful wonder and endless infatuation with humanity. His new album, Mean Dog, Trampoline, was engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz) and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Houndmouth).
