Wednesday 22nd May
The Handsome Family + Frontier Ruckus play Brighton Komedia
“Dark, elemental, mischievous and mournful” ~ Mojo
The Handsome Family (songwriting and marriage partners Brett and Rennie Sparks) are purveyors of wonderfully dark and stormy noir Americana. 
Their eleventh studio album, Hollow (which was out September 2023) delves into the natural world at the edges of the man-made.
It is a record lush with leaves and shadows and echoing with occult mystery. Oh and they contributed a track to Guy Richie’s ‘Gentleman’ series.
