Calendar Pick: Houston in the Blind & Thayer Sarrano

Houston in the Blind

Former Athens-based acts Houston in the Blind and Thayer Sarrano are coming together to play a show celebrating the former’s upcoming album release. Houston in the Blind began with a nine-track album called Limbs in 2015 that proved its indie rock potential, complete with alluring soundscapes and melancholy lyrics. This year’s release, Hide the Glow, is a marked shift, written after frontman Charlie Garrett’s move to Los Angeles in 2016 and the subsequent dissolution of his band. As a result, its themes are centered around change and resilience, and its sound inflects glimmers of hope. Thayer Sarrano is an artist who specializes in haunting and ethereal compositions along with Leonard Cohen-inspired lyricism. Her most recent release, 2019’s Wings Alleluia, is dark and fuzzy with a spiritual spine, lending it a transcendental energy. In Russell Rockwell’s review for Immersive Atlanta, he summarizes this feeling: “If the A-side is baptism with rejuvenating water, then the flip side is baptism with a cleansing fire.” Sarrano is also a successful touring artist, having headlined in the U.S. and Europe and toured with Television, Robyn Hitchcock, Drive-By Truckers and more.
