Matt Arthur & the Bratlanders

TOWNIE NIGHT continues at Armory Square's NEW outdoor stage! Matt Arthur is a fiercely contrarian Southern Minnesota blind man with a voice that calls to mind Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, and John Darnielle. Matt's band, The Bratlanders, is led by identically-bearded twins, and the group’s rootsy sound is a mix of rustic folk, old-time blues, cosmic country, indie dirges, and bombastic anthems. Their songs would shuffle sweetly through a playlist packed with early-70s Stones, Crazy Horse-era Neil Young, and more recent offerings from Sturgill Simpson and the Drive By Truckers.
