LAST SHOW: The Fairer Sex

with The Roseline

Eighth Street Tap Room

After this show The Fairer Sex five are going their separate ways. The Lawrence band is known for their catchy pop tunes from simple acoustic guitar-based melodies fleshed out with keys, trumpet, bass, and drums. Among the ranks are Ghosty keyboardist Dave Wetzel as well as good ol' boys Zach Hart, Tim Schapker, Ed Epps, and Charlie Naramore. Recalling upbeat twee poppers like The Lucksmiths and Belle and Sebastian, the group hooked up with Ionik Recordings to release its "Two Can Win" LP.The Roseline purveys a style of rootsy, melodic Americana influenced by wide-ranging artists such as Ryan Adams, Tom Petty, Gram Parsons and Josh Ritter. The band's second release, "Lust for Luster" sees an increased role for keyboardist/percussionist Ehren Starks, who split writing duties with principal songwriter Colin Halliburton. Riding shotgun are Jeff Jackson's sublime pedal steel licks and an understated rhythm section that you'd totally let make out with your sister. Listen to our podcast preview of the Roseline's new album.
