Bowerbirds: Phil Moore and Beth Tacular
San Diego will be treated to another great male and female fronted band this week as the Bowerbirds perform this Friday night at the Casbah. I was able to enjoy their rich, orchestral, folk music last time they performed at the Casbah and while their most recent release, “The Clearing”, has them drifting to louder regions than they have explored before, their performances never drift from feeling intimate. The harmony between Phil Moore and Beth Tacular is hard-earned, their relationship goes well beyond being bandmates and they have had their fair-share of troubles and conflict. Despite that, the Casbah will showcase such poignant songs as “In the Yard” and a personal favorite, “Tuck the Darkness In”, which can be listened to below. Opening for the Bowerbirds is the dark folk band Strand of Oaks. Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
