Pleased to welcome heralded singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield, better known as WAXAHATCHEE, to the Strange Matter stage in January! She has been praised by everybody whose seen here as well as every music journalist in the country and if you haven't heard her yet, you will be very soon. This will be a full quartet performing the songs of Waxahatchee. ALL DOGS will also be touring through alongside them bringing their blend of pop-punk and indie-pop with members of Delay and Saintseneca (who are also playing Smatter in January) and just singed to Salinas Records. Philly indie-pop ladies CAYETANA will also be playing as well as local rock rippers LITTLE MASTER!
Katie Crutchfield is a natural at writing confessional pop songs. Since picking up the guitar as a teenager she has spent the better part of her young adult life travelling the country to play basement shows for feminist punks with bands like P.S. Eliot, Bad Banana and The Ackleys, all of which she sang for. Crutchfield and her twin sister Allison started these bands in high school, inspired by touring bands that would pass through Alabama, as well as a local community-run show space called Cave 9 where they both volunteered. The sisters were best known as P.S. Eliot, a band that developed a cultish underground following until disbanding in 2011. Deciding to go it alone, Crutchfield became Waxahatchee and released her debut album American Weekend in 2012 and its lo-fi acoustic guitar-pop songs made for one of the year’s best unsung records.
