Our guests tonight are Painted Saints, comprised of Paul Fonfara (Vocals, Guitar, Clarinet, Viola, Bandoneon, drawings and paintings), Jonathan Kaiser (Cello), Josh Granowski (Bass), Kelly O’dea (Violin), and Chris Hepola (Drums).
Per their bio, "Painted Saints hail from Denver/Minneapolis and do the ever so popular spaghetti western-heroin klezmer-chamber country-sad bastard thing. They write tin can and twine romances in a color of rust with backdrops of long wind swept open roads framed by tangled barbed wire and naked telephone poles. Their songs are of ashtray broken hearts and landscapes of beauty and sorrow borrowing harmonies from old Eastern Europe, the desert southwest and the sentiments of working class rust belt Americana. they are also really into pompous descriptions."
Tune into KFAI (90.3 FM in Minneapolis, 106.7 in St. Paul, or stream online) between 10 PM and Midnight tonight to hear their in-studio performance!
