Joan of Arc Plays Tonight at The Mohawk
Yep. According to Polyvinyl, Joan of Arc has a 14-person lineup. There are strings and horns, and everything but the kitchen sink…unless they feel like playing that, too.
A little bit of family history: Brothers Tim and Mike Kinsella founded Cap’N Jazz. Then, after the band’s demise in 1995, it was time to explore a new direction – or at least have fun trying. Tim started an art rock collective called Joan of Arc a year later. Sure, it may have confused or irritated some of the more hardcore Cap’N Jazz fans, but it all came together quite nicely.
Over a decade later, Joan of Arc has a new album out, Boo Human, and a tour to go with it. See them tonight when they play at The Mohawk on Red River. Also on the bill are local bands Yellow Fever, and Single Frame.
