Adam Green will perform at Mongkol RCA Studio on Oct 19.
Adam Green, a singer-songwriter, artist and filmmaker from New York, will give an acoustic concert in Bangkok next weekend.
Many call his music "anti-folk", but for some it can be both anything and a little bit of everything. The 32-year-old talent has come a long way from his Peter Pan-suited days with indie group The Moldy Peaches, having gone on to release six studio albums as a solo artist.
Sometimes described as a storyteller in the guise of a musician, Green will be treating a Thai audience to his seemingly abstract lyrics delivered through a variety of mediums including grunge, blues, rock 'n' roll and jazz.
The upcoming show will also feature two local acts: Wednesday and Part Time Musicians.
Puttho Suksriwan is the leading light of Wednesday, known for its sweet, good-natured music. Released earlier this year, his Bangkok Session comprises 10 ambient pop songs, all instrumental and played live with different guitar looping each time.
Part Time Musicians is a five-member group that has only released four original songs to date. Their music is more than just folky or Californian pop, as they cite Pink Floyd and psychedelic music as their influences. One of its members is Jin Matutamtada, who has played with the post-rock band Kinetics.
The "Adam Green Acoustic Concert" will take place at Mongkol RCA Studio on Rama IX Road (Soi Soonvijai) on Oct 19. It will kick off at 8pm and wind up at midnight. Tickets cost 800 baht if bought in advance, and 950 baht at the door.
