Keith Morris and the Crooked Numbers – 2 Sept 2017 @Batesville Market
September 2 @ 18:30 - 21:00Free
Keith Morris and the Crooked Numbers return to the Batesville Market to perform their original songs, including highlights from their latest album, The Dirty Gospel.
The Dirty Gospel, according to Keith Morris and his band The Crooked Numbers, combines achingly honest songwriting with grit and swagger to create music that gets at the heart of how it feels to be alive. Hailing from Charlottesville (VA), the band’s third release embodies the voice of an outsider pushed to the edge by personal experience amidst a world that seems intent on collapse.
The Crooked Numbers, stellar players from the Charlottesville music scene, round out The Dirty Gospel. The band alternately wail, whisper, slam, float and sting throughout the ten tracks. Subtle nuance in one song turns to catharsis in another, and the band handles the varying moods seamlessly. “The whole band deserves credit,” writes No Depression. “But the choir makes the album–four voices dipped in sugar and honey in just the right proportions.”
