Calendar Pick: Floral Portrait Album Release Show

Every so often, an album comes around that reminds you what you love about this town so much. Floral Portrait’s self-titled debut is unquestionably that album. Recorded by a vast roster of composer Jason Bronson’s musical peers and friends, Floral Portrait is so confidently baroque and so innocently romantic that it oozes. The album is outstanding in its stereo field, enveloping the listener in a maximalist, orchestral cocoon. The album, which was released on Jan. 28 through Atlanta’s Marching Banana Records (Futo, Sea Ghost), will enjoy a live retelling at Hendershot’s on Mar. 3, complete with a full ensemble. Bandmate Freeman Leverett and Julia Nyunt will open.

WHO: Floral Portrait, Freeman Leverett, Julia Nyunt
WHEN: Friday, Mar. 3, 8 p.m.
WHERE: Hendershot’s
