“Many of the songs on the new album are motivated by a shift from private to public concerns,” says Felice Brothers songwriter Ian Felice. “It isn’t hard to find worthwhile things to write about these days; there are a lot of storms blooming on the horizon and a lot of chaos that permeates our lives. The hard part is finding simple and direct ways to address them.” The local heroes of shambolic folk/rock celebrate the release of their new record Undress (Yep Roc Records) with a performance in the big back-room theater at BSP on Saturday, May 11. Johnathan Rice opens. Tickets cost $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
