Gary Higgins is back from the time-space continuum with not one, but TWO, upcoming live performances! Way back in 2005, Drag City introduced his 1974 psych-folk classic, the previously privately pressed Red Hash, to listeners around the world. The world has never been the same, as we were all acutely touched by Gary’s carefully-arranged, darkly utopian songs - songs that proved an inspiration for many, including some of our very own sons of darkness, like Six Organs of Admittance. Red Hash has been widely recognized over the past decade as a classic of its time, and its resurgence kept Gary busy traveling through the cosmos and releasing more righteous tunes: new material in Seconds., and more from the vault in A Dream A While Back.
Despite all that activity, Higgins live performances have been rare. So with two shows on the horizon, it goes without saying but we're going to say it anyway: this is a BIG DEAL! Adding icing to the cake, these shows will feature a set byGary's old band, Random Concept, as well! Catch the mythical man NOW, East Coasters!
