Midweek Music: Elison Jackson

Wednesday, Oct. 27: Elison Jackson @ Cafe Nine, New Haven

We recently received a request for publicity from CT folkies Elison Jackson, and we're so happy to report that they are great and we can wholeheartedly endorse them on their musical merit - not just because they are friends of our friends Sidewalk Dave and we are flattered by email (though these latter factors can't possibly hurt; cue influx of emails from bands pretending to be friends of Sidewalk Dave). Actually Elison Jackson (a band, not a dude in the band) sounds a bit like Sidewalk Dave does in their mellower mode, especially in the vocal delivery, which manages to sound jaded and vulnerable at the same time. You can check out their whole album online here. And go see them live tomorrow night at Cafe Nine along with The Proud Flesh and Plume Giant.

How about that band pic? They're just like regular dudes. We'll just go on thinking of them as looking like the fake band picture that they also use.
