MUSIC: RuRu, Desert Noises, Code Hero At Graywhale Tonight

Written by Steve Pierce on . Posted in Music

Graywhale Entertainment, located at University Mall in Provo, presents the next entry in their biweekly Local Artist Showcase tonight at 7:00 p.m., featuring a killer line-up of Provo musicians.

RuRu, the stage name of local folk wunderkind Isaac Russell, will headline the evening with a full band set that is sure to please. If you happened to catch his spare, acoustic-driven set at the Vibrant Sound’s CD Release party in June, you are in for a treat. As excellent as young Russell is all by his lonesome, RuRu is an altogether different beast when drums, pedal steel and electric guitar are fully featured. Furthermore, the artist has promised new material for tonight’s show, which should be enough to whet your appetite, considering Russell’s considerable songwriting ability. Do yourself a favor and amble over to Graywhale for a bit tonight. You won’t regret it.

The show will also feature local boys and RuRu labelmates (over at Joshua James and McKay Stevens’ Northplatte Records) Desert Noises, as well as Code Hero. Desert Noises recently released their first EP, chock-full of folk-rock songs that resemble some kind of lovechild created by Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes. I first stumbled onto Code Hero at last year’s Sego Festival during their set on the main stage and remember being significantly impressed. We’ll see if my memory serves me correctly tonight.

The show starts tonight (Wednesday) at 7:00 p.m. at Graywhale Entertainment, located next to the food court at University Mall. Admission is free, so you really have no monetary excuse for not being there. Rhombus promises an evening of great local music for the optimal (non-)price. We hope to see you there.
