This article should only contain: “The Tree Ring, album release show, Saturday, Birch North Park Theatre” and that should be enough to convince you to go. But I am in the unique position of being a Point Loma Nazarene alum, which means I only had to look for the closest find a feather-hair-extension or a mustache (student’s or professor’s) to find a fan. The local five-piece chamber-pop group includes the prolific Joel P West, who recently wrote the music for the film “I am not a Hipster”, the multi-talented Kelly Bennett, who spends her days as the Arts Editor for Voice of San Diego, Douglas Welcome, Darla Hawn, and Jon Titterington. While the idea of strings-and-organ-heavy rock may turn off some, The Tree Ring’s music is always engrossing and often transcendent. They’re bringing their intimate and complex music to the Birch North Park Theatre tomorrow night to celebrate the release of their new album, "Brushbloom". You can listen to a few tracks embedded below before the album releases this Tuesday. The Shivers are opening. Be sure to get your tickets early here.
