ERIC BRACE / PETER COOPER / THOMM JUTZ
Sunday Sept. 24
227 Maple Ave. E.
This is the D.C. area record release show for the trio's new album.
Called Profiles in Courage, Frailty, and Discomfort (no, really) the album is out this summer on Eric’s East Nashville label Red Beet Records, and it’s 14 songs by all three members, tackling such weighty topics as moonwalks, steamboat captaining, dollar-slots, Johnny Cash’s gravesite, Jerry Lee Lewis’s birthplace, Willie Nelson’s notions of eternity, the downside of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and a Tennessee town flooded for the sake of electricity.
Eric, Peter, and Thomm each has something distinct and slightly skewed to say about the world, and when they bring their singular perspectives to the trio table, it’s a perfect example of a whole being much greater than the sum of its parts.
