Boston Band Crush Archived Article: Show Crush: The Low Anthem and Anais Mitchell at The Brattle Theater

This article originally appears on Boston Band Crush ).

I always enjoy seeing bands in movie theaters. It makes me think of the days of Vaudeville and then I begin to wish that we didn’t end up losing it all to so much home entertainment. I’ll take a moment now to wipe away the tears. Okay, so, tomorrow (6/18), at The Brattle Theater, there’s an excitingly sedate show.

Semi-local Providence, RIers and recentish Nonesuch additions The Low Anthem will be downtempoing us into compliance with their beautifully constructed, almost hymnal tunes. Neo-folk is still alive, at least for 2009! If neo-folk is too neo for you, the show has also got the far-more-traditionally folky Righteous Babe artist Anais Mitchell.
