Preview: Noah Gundersen plays Soda Bar tonight with Armon Jay

Noah Gundersen

Noah Gundersen, after building strong body of work with songs featured in episodes of Sons of Anarchy, Vampire Diaries, and One Tree Hill, returns to San Diego to the play the Soda Bar tonight.  The surprise is that it is in support of his debut full length album, the spare but achingly lovely, Ledges.  While many musicians lean towards bombast and spectacle when embracing the neo-folk sound, Gundersen's bluesy approach is just as arresting in its quietest melodies.  Opening for Noah Gunderson tonight is Armon Jay, who is also touring in support of a Kickstarter-backed debut album of his own, Edge of the Dark.  Soda Bar is a 21+ venue, tickets are $12, and doors are at 8:30p. Be sure to watch a live performance of "Dying Now", one of my favorite tracks on Ledges, after the jump.
