REMINDER: Matt Alber Will Perform to Benefit Larkin Street Youth Services; SF CA 6/3

READ MATT’S FULL INTERVIEW WITH ACCIDENTAL BEAR

Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Matt Alber will be performing on June 3rd at the Hotel Utah in San Francisco with proceeds benefiting Larkin Street. “Seattle-based singer/songwriter Matt Alber has been writing about that same sliver of hope since he quit his day job and started making records at home. Alber’s first full-length album, Hide Nothing, does just that. He sings openly about a boyhood crush on a Field-trip Buddy. In Beotia, he sings both parts of a duet (one in coloratura soprano) between male lovers in an ancient army. He even plays a 1960′s crooner in the music video for End Of The World finding love in a barbershop with a gentleman getting his shoes shined. Sonically he culls everything from chopped-up beats to children’s choirs– and did I hear a real bassoon? But Alber’s songs, while keeping the pronouns honest, seep deeply into the heart of any listener who’s ever wondered if things were going to work out.”
