Those looking for something other than the NPR approved alt-country of Neko Case can make their way to Deep Ellum this evening and catch a pretty cool bill of alternative rock.
Headlining the evening is Jonny Craig, a Canadian who's become something of a renaissance man of the Emo genre. Formerly the frontman from Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa, Craig has also served a brief stint with A Skylit Drive and is currently working with Cinematic Sunrise vocalist Craig Owens on a new EP under the moniker Isles & Glaciers. Whew! You got all that?
In any case, Craig has quite a set of pipes and he's not afraid to demonstrate his pent-up angst. His recently released solo album, A Dream is a Question You Don't Know How to Answer, shows off Craig's range as well as his diverse influences. Songs like "Children of Divorce" and "7 AM, 2 Bottles and The Wrong Road" feature an almost neo-soul feel, although the lyrical content definitely sways towards the Emo ditch.
