The Monologue Bombs
Dec 29, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
The Monologue Bombs is the solo project of Scott Phillips from Raleigh, North Carolina’s fertile music scene. In his take on sinner-songwriting, Phillips’s stories take you from fuzzy funereal memories to drunken metro fumblings, from college town fear and loathing to shaky suburban snapshots. Switching from piano to accordion to guitar and back, the focus is always on the verite scene-setting, the drives of the characters, and the ugly/beautiful truths of their stories. Plus a voice that shades it all in with whispers and wails, convictions and surrenderrings. Trainspotters can pick out flavor crystals (Springsteen, Buckner, Gibbard, Bragg, etc), but The Monologue Bombs is a singular experience. Spare, yet inviting. Smart, yet still starry-eyed.
