Sudden Opera

By: Laurie Gallardo

Pony Bradshaw is the musical project of James Bradshaw, a songwriter who’s lived in many places throughout his life, but has spent the last 10 years calling North Georgia his home. And very much like his life, Bradshaw’s debut LP Sudden Opera is illuminated with a nomadic spirit, drifting through haunted spaces and driven by a brooding restlessness. The imagery creeps up on you, sometimes surreal, sometimes stark – a Southern Gothic path taken in search of redemption.

Pony Bradshaw is in Austin for a show tonight at Stubb’s indoor venue, 801 Red River. Austin-based hazy dark-folk outfit and AMM fave Marijuana Sweet Tooth is the perfect opener for the show. Doors at 8 p.m. Recommended.
