MATT BAUER AND DANA FALCONBERRY
6 p.m., Artchurch Studio, $10.

If you dig sparsely gorgeous folk tunes with mostly acoustic instrumentation, hushed singing and sweetly sad melodies, the last decade or so has been good to you, what with your Iron & Wines and Bon Ivers and Fleet Foxeses and Devendra Banharts and M. Wards, not to mention continuous, excellent output from their predecessors such as Will Oldham and Bill Callahan. All of which is to say, if that sort of thing is your bag, you'll want to check out Matt Bauer and Dana Falconberry. Bauer is a Brooklyn-based singer and picker of the banjo and guitar who's earned acclaim from a variety of sources, including Thrasher Magazine (!). Falconberry is out of Austin, but is a Hendrix alumna who has played the area often, so you might already be familiar with her. The two began collaborating in recent months and have been on a goddang gigantic tour since early June. They've got a positively beautiful two-song EP on bandcamp.com right now that reminds this writer of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's incredible, way underrated "Master and Everyone" from back in aught-three.
