There's a way cool rock show here at Ragtag on Saturday night, featuring ambient artists Scott Tuma and Lake Mary and friends. It's part of the Dismal Niche Fest, which will be happening all over downtown this weekend. The show will start at 11pm.
Scott Tuma is a Chicago musician best known for playing guitar in the pioneering alt-country band Souled American. On his own, he creates magical, majestic and haunting melodies situated between folk, country, and ambient music.
Lake Mary is artist Chaz Prymek, who True/False goers will recognize as a busker from years past. Lake Mary's music merges virtuosic finger style acoustic guitar with transcendental drone based ambience to create a teary eyed and nostalgic, but also viscerally natural and ecstatically joyful, experience. He will be accompanied by members of Columbia's own Nevada Greene.
