Urthboy and Daniel Merriweather, tonight, Great Northern

Teaming up with incredible Daniel Merriweather, Urthboy sidesteps peers while exhibiting his trademark sharp flow, songwriting talents and that knack for well-crafted hooks. The concept of ‘naïve bravado’ is like a lamb with a lion’s heart; a broken-down car needing a jump start. It’s not a false courage if it leads you out of the mess. Anchored in running bass lines, ominous horns and monstrous percussive drums — all concocted by the brilliant collaborative production of Count Bounce and Hermitude.

Friday at the Hotel Great Northern.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
