Auctioneer EP Release Show at JB’s Oct. 6

Published on the Deli Philadelphia – Thursday, October 6, 2011

Craig Hendrix, like many Philly music scene vets, has been around. There’s his work with Birdie Busch and Aderbat (and its offspring, Mammal of Paradise), his status as founder & composer of the music-meets-visuals collective The Agave Opera Company, and his position as musical director of the Puppetyranny performance group. He also spearheads Auctioneer, his latest project featuring fellow Mammal of Paradise/Aderbat bandmate Todd Schied, Birdie Busch/Hoots & Hellmouth‘s Todd Erk, and Ladies Auxilary‘s Jesse Moore. The outfit’s self-titled debut EP, which was released digitally in August, is a minimalist dream of indie delight – a sunny day bitterness with elements of art-house world and stripped-down power-pop. Tonight, Auctioneer will celebrate the physical release of the debut, which drops today, at Johnny Brenda’s, along with fellow minimalist weirdo-folk animals Norwegian Arms (who released the EPs Сибирь (Sibir’), and Trimmings of Hides in August and March respectively). In other words: get ready for a night of ironic pleasantness. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
