On Friday, April 15, shed your tax day blues with Salt Lake City’s The Devil Whale as they make their Madison debut with a house show at the North Mendota Supper Club. Featuring lyrics by frontman Brinton Jones, the band has a vintage, yet forward-looking sound that will appeal to fans of Destroyer, Ryan Adams, and Frontier Ruckus. Their 2010 EP, Young Wives, randomly showed up in our mailbox last fall and we were immediately hooked. It should be a great, energy-packed show. Supporting The Devil Whale will be Count This Penny, a Madison duo transplanted from East Tennessee. Veterans of the club scene in Knoxville, Count This Penny is just starting garner a following in Madison, receiving a big push from ISTHMUS a couple weeks ago. If you like the Everybodyfields, the Civil Wars, or some old school Gram and Emmylou, you will dig Count This Penny. Doors open at 8:30 with a showtime of 9:00. An $8 donation at the door will get you in for this excellent double bill – send an email to email@example.com for the address and other info.
