Live Concerts

Daughter / Choir of Young Believers

Event Date: 
Monday, October 15, 2012 - 8:00pm

Red Room

Daughter is vocalist/guitarist Elena Tonra, electric guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguila. Together, the trio write dark, ethereal, and hauntingly beautiful songs that showcase a group of young musicians experimenting delicately with a rich array of songwriting ideas and yet remaining intent on pouring out their souls, pure and unadulterated. Daughter has been described by Mojo Magazine as “unflinchingly honest and hugely captivating.” In August of 2011, the breathtaking “Landfill” was hand-picked by iTunes for its powerful “Spotlight” feature, garnering the band more fans as the song climbed the iTunes singer-songwriter charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Featured as Vogue Magazine’s artist of the week, the band was described this way: “Daughter masterfully blends fluttering, heart-on-the-sleeve acoustic ballads with brooding, ambient soundscapes…”

Choir Of Young Believers (COYB) is the musical project of singer, writer, and guitarist Jannis Noya Makrigiannis from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band, which consists of Markrigiannis along with a rotating cast of supporting players, has had multiple No. 1 hits in its home country and was named Best New Act at the 2009 Danish Music Awards. COYB’s music combines folk melodies, orchestral instrumentation, and dark lyrics.

Admission: $12 in advance, $14 day of show
