Talk about your renaissance men. Drew Danburry toured hard and put out a steady stream of music for years, garnering critical praise near and far and sharing stages with some great fellow artists, including Deer Tick, Wye Oak, Say Anything and more. And when he decided to take a pause in his melodic pursuits, he opened up a barber shop in downtown Provo--the aptly named Danburry Barber Shop. That doesn't mean he's done with music, though. After a restorative stint away from the pressures and challenges of pursuing a DIY music career, Danburry is back with a new release, Becoming Bastian Salazar, which he describes as "the story of how one person evolves from love to hate, hope to despair, and altruism to egocentricity," something he felt happening to himself a few years back. It's a fine addition to Danburry's already stellar catalog, and hopefully marks a refreshing rebirth for him, and many more chances to hear Danburry play for us. Let's start with two release parties, Friday at Velour in Provo and Saturday at Kilby Court. Opening at Kilby Court is the North Valley, JP Haynie and Ben Best. Seve vs. Evan, Deadtooth and Cameron McGill are also on the bill at Velour.
