After almost a year-long hiatus from live performance, local band Whisper Kiss will celebrate the release of its new album, Long Is The Ride, with a live show at Buvez. But just because the band took a break from playing live doesn’t mean they weren’t still creating meaningful music. The band’s guitarist, Michael Wegner, has been quite prolific in his creation of solo material, even placing as a finalist in the most recent Vic Chesnutt Songwriter of the Year Award competition with his song “Seriously.” The band will be playing songs from the new album, songs from their older works, ‘80s covers and even new, unreleased material. The band, which makes self-described “music to hear a pin drop by,” is also set to open for Randall Bramblett on Sept. 27 at the State Botanical Garden.

WHO: Whisper Kiss
WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 10, 7 p.m.
WHERE: Buvez
