S. Carey has broken free from being known just as the drummer in Bon Iver, and has become a must-see act in his own right, touring tirelessly in support of his sensational solo debut, All We Grow. Carey's songs are technically precise and artfully restrained, with each subtle layer casting an intricate shadow over his stark but stirring arrangements, while his impassioned live performances have already managed to captivate local audiences. He'll be joined at the Varsity by fellow Eau Claire standouts the Daredevil Christopher Wright, which should make for a relaxed, affable evening of deeply affecting modern folk rock from a collection of truly talented musicians. 18+.
