Artist of the day: The Holy Slow Train
Will Quinlan and the Diviners were one of tbt*’s Ultimate Local Artists in 2009. In recent years, Quinlan, a veteran of multiple local music projects, also experimented with The Holy Slow Train, a project that enabled him to get out some of the soulful, twangy material that didn’t fit with the Diviners or his other band, the Pagan Saints. It’s folksy, lovely material in the vein of Iron and Wine that doesn’t surface very often in the Bay area. So this week’s upcoming concert is not to be missed.
The Holy Slow Train will perform as part of New Granada’s annual Xmas Night Extravaganza, Christmas night at New World Brewery in Tampa. Permanent Makeup and Set and Setting are also on the bill. Tickets are $8. Click here.
