Neyla Pekarek

Thursday, January 23, 2020 / 7:30 pm EST

$20 – $25

Cellist / vocalist Neyla Pekarek—formerly of the Grammy®️-nominated indie-folk band the Lumineers—certainly chose a compelling muse for her 2019 solo debut, Rattlesnake. While on horseback with her son in 1925, Kate Slaughterback confronted a sudden, terrifying advance of rattlesnakes. First, she used her gun to fend them off. When the bullets ran out? She fashioned a makeshift club. After two hours, 140 snakes were dead and the Rattlesnake Kate legend was forged. Pekarek envisions Kate’s life surrounding this incident through a rollicking, expansive song cycle of Americana, blues, ’60s pop, Tin Pan Alley and doo-wop. From Kate’s story, Pekarek has created a cathartic battle cry about asserting identity, refusing to capitulate and defying expectations. Sometimes you need to show them all the poison you possess inside.
