Local musicians Gabriel Douglas from the roots rock quartet The 4onthefloor and Danny O’Brien from the indie band The Farewell Circuit will play an evening of acoustic music at the New Century Theatre. This event will be the first in a new interactive series called Acoustic Century. The duo will share the stories behind their tracks, answer questions from the audience and perform separately on stage. Topics covered will focus on the aspects of the songwriting process, what it’s like to be a part of the local music scene in the Twin Cities, life on the road and the dichotomy between playing in a group versus having a solo career.
Gabriel Douglas has performed both as a solo performer and as lead singer and drummer for The 4onthefloor. He has shared the stage with such musical luminaries as Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson and his group released their debut album, "4x4," in April 2011. "[Douglas] effortlessly toggles between a whiskey-fueled, gravelly drawl and a stimulating, larynx shredding bellow," wrote Mark Suppanz from the music magazine The Big Takeover.
Danny O'Brien crafts indie pop tunes both a solo artist and lead singer, guitarist and pianist for The Farewell Circuit. The group released their debut album, "In Our Bones," in November 2011. "In an era where pervasive poverty, war, revolution and uncertainty exist, The Farewell Circuit offers optimism and belief in humanity," says the Dadada Music Blog.
