When: Fri., June 17, 10 p.m. 2016
Hartford, Conn.’s Wise Old Moon were born of hard labor and booze. Front man Connor Millican founded the roots-rock group while painting houses by day and tending bar by night. The band’s take on twang reflects that blue-collar ethic, cut with a chaser of woozy indie-rock sensibilities. Regional critics have lauded their records, including Mike Hamad of the Hartford Courant, who wrote of their 2014 debut, The Patterns, “You can almost smell the late-night paint fumes and hear the clinking of glasses.” Wise Old Moon play the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington on Friday, June 17.
