Event description

Description

The Suitcase Junket, aka Matt Lorenz, last played Norfolk at Fringe Fest, where he earned a pair of standing ovations from the packed house at Commune. He returns to play an early show at Toast with a new album in tow, "Mean Dog, Trampoline," out on April 9 and produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos. We're working with LAVA Presents to bring the show.

He's a one-man band, a show unlike any you've seen. Yes, he uses everything from a cook pot to a guitar pulled from a dumpster. But don't get wrapped up in the package, as unique as it is. He's an incredible singer and songwriter. He calls his musical genre Swamp Yankee.

"I’ve been blessed in my career as a producer to have worked with some remarkable artists, but I have never worked with anyone quite like Matt Lorenz / The Suitcase Junket," Berlin says. "Besides making the complexity of everything he does look effortless, he’s a truly gifted singer and and amazing songwriter. We had a blast making this record and I’m anxious to share it with the world."

In creating the album, Lorenz pulled from a fantastically patchwork sonic palette, shaping his songs with elements of jangly folk, fuzzed-out blues, oddly textured psych-rock. Engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz) and mixed by Vance Powell (Jack White, Houndmouth), Mean Dog, Trampoline rightly preserves The Suitcase Junket’s unkempt vitality, but ultimately emerges as his most powerfully direct album so far.

Check out the new single, "Dandelion Crown."
