Mikey Sweet ($5)
February 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$5
With a sound characterized by deft guitar picking and a raw, haunting voice, Northampton, MA-based singer-songwriter Mikey Sweet connects with listeners’ hearts through the simple universal power of song. Sweet writes in the tradition of American storytelling shaped by such legends as Prine, Towns Van Zandt and Springsteen and his music can be described as song-centric folk-Americana. Revealing a vulnerability rarely seen on stage, Sweet weaves themes of hope and redemption through the apocalyptic backdrop of his songs like a silk thread, evoking an emotional intensity that cannot help but affect the listener. “With his expressive, lived-in voice, Mikey Sweet balances heartworn lyrics with just enough humor on engaging, deeply felt Americana tunes.” – Eric Danton of The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Salon and Paste Magazine
