Noah and the Whale bring their compelling live performance to the intimate San Diego Woman's Club.
"From the beginning I wanted to write a record that had that excitement of being young and being in the night. I think it's that naivity -- that feeling that things are happening everywhere except where you are, wondering what's out there in the wide world," says Charlie Fink of Noah and the Whale in reference to writing the band's third album, Last Night on Earth. "It's when you're on a bus, you don't know where you're heading, you don't know what's at the end of it, and you have this fantasy that whatever's at the end of it is going to be remarkable and magnificent." Although the sentiment is captured beautifully on the new record, Noah and the Whale are best enjoyed live, where the space between the band and audience is completely lost and everyone is on that same bus together. Tonight, Noah and the Whale performs at the all-ages San Diego Woman's Club. This is an early show, with doors at 7 p.m., so don't miss your chance to see one of this generation's best storytellers.
Noah and the Whale will be joined by Bahamas, the moniker of Afie Jurnaven, a much-sought-after musician whose Pink Strat was nominated for the Polaris Prize and a Juno Award in Canada, and was released in the U.S. by Brushfire Records last Tuesday. They've toured with Wilco and opened for Calexico, Elvis Costello and tonight will kick things off for Noah and the Whale at the intimate Woman's Club.
