10 Items or Fewer w/ Annie Enneking of Annie and the Bang Bang $12
Saturday, September 16 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
10 Items or Fewer is music by Mike Hallenbeck & co. The music soaks post-skiffle X-treme folk in the depths of flyover country and psychedelia– harboring lyrics about dinosaurs, mammoths, Evel Kneivel, Star Wars, a crashed Russian space station, and Planet of the Apes.
Before he exited the Witness Protection Program, Hallenbeck was known back in the day for his work as leader of Mike Merz & the Can O’ Worms— honored as Songwriter of the Year by City Pages until Mason Jennings moved into the Songwriter’s Mansion the year after. Hallenbeck has also worked with artists ranging like Pimentos for Gus. Lori Wray. Charlie McCarron, and Brown Rainbow— honing skills as a songwriter, arranger, performer, and mix engineer.
A new album appropriately titled The Fossil Record creeps toward conclusion. Begun as home recording sessions back in 2002, abandoned in slow motion in the succeeding years, and resurrected during 2020 quarantine, the record uniquely blends performances across decades and purees the results into a rootsy, genre-bending, art-damaged parfait.
Annie Enneking is lover and a fighter. She writes songs about having a body at a particular place in time. She fronts and founded the searing, mischievous rock band Annie and the Bang Bang, and, as a more mellow, acoustic-based singer-songwriter, gets to the heart of the matter on albums like what i want now i will want later and Lyndale & 24th, where everything is spare and true and hurts just right.
