Spottiswoode & His Enemies 

When: Sat., May 3 2014
Price: $12/$15

Ranging from malevolent vaudeville to plangent folk-rock to lush and heartfelt pop, Jonathan Spottiswoode careens all over the musical map. Yet his roughed-up baritone and scalpel-sharp songwriting tie all his genre-jumping together in a squirming sack of sunny songs, off-kilter cabaret and breathtaking honesty. From downtown New York, his Enemies match the half-English Spottiswoode’s divinely mad visions with lurid rock, fractured jazz and rolling gospel. This crack crew pulls anything and everything out of the battered silk hat to augment Spottiswoode’s sarcastic, melodic songs. It’s music for and by perpetual outsiders — scary, hilarious and touched by genius. (Michael Walsh)
