He's My Brother She's My Sister, the western-tinged, folk-rock ensemble, with a touch of vaudeville glamour, will be bringing their expanded (and slightly experimental) new show to the Troubadour in West Hollywood, on Friday, February 3. This will be the acclaimed band's first Los Angeles live performance of 2011 after coming off the road opening for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes last fall.
The Los Angeles band's mixture of colorful costumes, alleyway rhythms, and high energy entice audiences of all tastes and generations. The band will be testing new material for an album along with their fan favorites from their recent self-titled EP.
Brother and sister, dueling lead singers and songwriters, Rob Kolar and Rachel Kolar, and tap-dancer Lauren Brown, will be joined on this special evening by an extended family of musical accompanists including the brilliant lap-slide player Aaron Robinson (Sea Wolf, The Hi-Ho's), Oliver Newell on upright bass (Amanda Jo Williams, Henry Wolfe), and Patrick Joseph on a non-traditional standing drum set up.
If you have yet to catch He's My Brother She's My Sister live, come see why they have been called "delightfully original" (Indieshuffle) "a time warp to the golden present" (LA Record) and "forward thinking folkies forging new ground"(New Times). "Rob and Rachel's voices mingle like glamour in the desert" and serve up "party music for coyotes drunk on champagne," (LA Weekly). "Their mojo (has) the power to heal the afflicted" (Deli Magazine) so "see them before your friends do." (Jambase)
