He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister Plays Wednesday Night at Lambert’s
There’s a bit of debauchery in the air. Smashing good times, a couple of eye winks, and who knows what direction the evening will go toward. Leave to a band like He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister to make debauchery look so…delightful and refreshing.
The LA-based notoriously dubbed “forward-thinking folkies” are known for their flamboyant, exuberant live performances – colorful, semi-burlesque productions that feel like a theatrical embrace of old-school folk and rustic charm that leaves audiences enchanted. The band has described its sound as circus rock, or glam-a-billy, or Vaudeville pop. All of it is quite fitting for this avante-garde outfit. And let us not leave out the tap-dancing drummer.
In case you were wondering (in reference to the name), there are siblings in this band: Songwriters Robert Kolar and Rachel Kolar. Robert has played for many years with his band Lemon Sun, and Rachel and the band’s tap-dancing drummer Lauren Brown co-founded their Los Angeles theater company, POST FACT Productions.
He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister perform Wednesday night at Lambert’s, 401 W. 2nd St. Austin band Cowboy and Indian opens the show. The music starts at 10:30, but you may want to get there early for what will most likely be a very packed house. Recommended.
