THE special Starlandia-curated music series features two locals and a touring act this weekend.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s Friendship evokes a gentle kind of vulnerable and experimental Americana. Songwriter Dan Wriggins has a Bill Callahan-evoking warmly frank and tattered style to his vocals, and the swells of slide guitar can add a lazy cheer or heartbreaking undercurrent to his riveting lyricism.
Rich Animals blends drums, bass guitar, guitars, samplers, and synths to create unusual sonic landscapes.
The Gumps punch it up with their brash and clever take on folk-infused punk.
Wednesday, May 10, 9 p.m., $5, all-ages
