LIVE! He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister – LA Public Library in Los Angeles, CA (3/3/2011)

March 10, 2011

He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister’s recent set at the LA Public Library was a short but lively ramble into American roots music. Part of an ongoing series at the Mark Taper Forum, the concert was one segment of an evening that included a panel with comedian Patton Oswald, singer and writer John Wesley Harding, and photographer Catherine Opie.

Playing in an outdoor courtyard, the performance suffered a bit from from the chilly temperature and acoustics, but the energy and musicianship were enough to keep the audience listening until the finale. An interesting outfit with a lineup that includes a tap dancer, pedal steel guitar, and upright bass, He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister’s music might best be described as one part alt-country, one part Sushine pop. The Bakersfield country sound meets the Mamas and the Papas, more or less. With an upcoming residency at LA’s Spaceland, I’ll be sure to check them out again for more insight into their unique cross section of Americana.

    Photograph courtesy of Bryan Swarberg, with zero warning and inferior tools. He’s done a lot better. He’ll do a lot better…for you.

    Not even his first choice of the many stills he snapped, I hear.

    Bryan C. Crawberg is one of the most talented photographic artists to hit the scene in a long while. Huge win for Clifford getting these intensely beautiful still for his “website.”
