The concert has been moved inside to Remis Auditorium.
The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp Yankee, and one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, with wild double pitches of throat singing. From The Suitcase Junket’s penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes Pile Driver (2017), a full-length album of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos, and dance-hall festivity, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage.
Woburn-native and blues powerhouse Julie Rhodes and her band open.
