Oct 12th: Sad Songs and Sacha Mullin β€” Live at Mustache

@ Cafe Mustache

Saturday, October 12 ~~ 8PM

An evening of evocative balladry with Sad Songs (a vocal group whose repertoire includes Mexican folk tunes & torch songs), and Sacha Mullin (a jazzy singer-songwriter, also known as that guy with the crayons who checks your ID sometimes).

While free, a suggested donation of $5-10 is much appreciated. The evening's donations will be split, going towards both Suicide Prevention Awareness, and to the Arbor Day Foundation.

As with most events at Mustache, the event is 21+, and a DJ is set to follow.

9PM: SAD SONGS (πŸ’§πŸ‘):
Sandy, Soren, Isyemille, and Reed present serenades of Sad Songs, moving you through time; telling multilingual stories of heartbreak and hauntings in three-part harmony. The melancholies this foursome share come to life over beachy electric-guitar riffs, nylon-string guitar, acoustic percussion, and synths.

Anachronistically present, this foursome visits sorrows that were born in Mexico sometime in the '20s, but raised on β€˜60s doo-wop and folk. Listen carefully: each arrangement has a way of finding your soft spot, caressing with seductive gloom.

10PM: SACHA MULLIN (βœ¨β—£)
Sacha Mullin is a Chicago-based singer-songwriter noted for his "commanding yet vulnerable" vocal approach, and his angular, jazzy melodies. Sacha's two solo albums (2013's Whelm and 2017's Duplex) have received high praise from the likes of BBC Radio 6, Chicago Reader, Vocalo, The Deli, and The Wire, who claimed the great Kate Bush was his "presiding spirit".

A frequent collaborative performer, Sacha has sung with Bobby McFerrin, Dead Rider, and Dessa; shared stages with Lightning Bolt and Mitski; and has been heard on NPR, MTV, CBS, and Japan’s NHK. He is also one third of the Minnesotan vocal trio Vitamin Drama (alongside singers Himes Alexander and Alexandra Kae), and is working towards his third solo record, co-piloted by Todd Rittmann.
