What is Patrick Galactic's Lo-Fi All-Stars?

Short Answer: It’s this Sunday at High Dive! Get tickets now ($6)

Long Answer: Patrick Galactic’s Lo-Fi All-Stars is a series I curate at the High Dive on the first Sunday of every month. It is a celebration of song in its most minute form. I find three amazing songwriters and let them share their music, most often with just a guitar or piano to accompany them.

Why?

Great songs come through no matter how they are played. It’s fun to strip things down and hear the raw emotional center of an excellently-crafted song. Sometimes I hear a band that I love and wonder what they would sound like stripped down. So I have them play an acoustic set, sometimes just the lead singer, sometimes the whole band. You still with me?

If you are a singer-songwriter who’d like to be part of a future show, come out Sunday and chat with me. These shows can only happen if our music community supports them. We need you. You need gigs.

This Sunday at High Dive, I’ve selected three very different artists who all share common threads.

Freman is multi-instrumentalist and musical line-stepper Lauren Freman. She's a singer-songwriter hell-bent on blurring the lines between high and low art. She’s opening the night at 8pm and is someone you don’t want to miss.

Kelly Fleek of The Spider Ferns performs a rare solo set, featuring stripped down arrangements of TSF's electro pop and rare gems that are only shared on nights like these.

Immensity Crumb is the new project of Clearly Beloved brains Brenden and Jennifer Smith. Beautiful, strange, delightful...a very grandiose, small thing.

Join me in The Tower of Song (The High Dive, just so we’re clear) and drink in the intimate and evocative energy of this amazing group of songwriters.
