Philly-by-way-of-Georgia troubador Adam Arcuragi brings his roadshow to the Sunset tonight in support of his soon-to-be-released third album, Like a fire that consumes all before it, out January 31st on Thirty Tigers. Arcuragi is credited as the creator of the awesomely-named "death gospel," which is pretty much what you'd imagine-- a genre that takes inspiration from country, folk, hymns and gospel music to form a lyrics-driven, singalong sound that is meant to bring people together. Or, as a member of his band once described it, "like going to church, but without all that annoying religious baggage." In other words, perfect for these dark January days, when we could all use a little human connection.
To get you in the mood, listen to a song from the new album and watch a video of Arcuragi performing for La Blogotheque after the jump.
Adam Arcuragi and the Lupine Chorale Society plays with Curt Krause (of Buffalo Death Beam) and Kellee Bradley tonight at the Sunset Tavern. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the cover is $7.00.
