Brook Blanche, Kody Oh, and Joey Henry spend much of their lives on the road as The Calamity Cubes. But on Thursday night the band members will each play solo acoustic sets as part of an evening billed as The Attack of the Acoustic Agitators, featuring Split Lip Rayfield’s Wayne Gottstine, the band Filthy Still and others.
For Blanche, Oh, and Henry, the show is more than a just another show. And songs, in this setting are more than songs.
“It’s a celebration of storytelling in the fact that it’s a whole bunch of songwriters all night,” Henry says.
Joey Henry is a storyteller. For the past six years he has been traveling the country sharing stories as the banjo player and one of three singer-songwriters for the Kansas-based trio, The Calamity Cubes, along with bandmates Brook Blanche and Kody Oh. When not touring with The Cubes, he focuses on his solo project, Joey Henry's Dirty Sunshine Club and occasionally gets back to his indie roots by providing words and vocals for the Lawrence based Old Canes (Saddle Creek records) and “noise banjo” for the Kansas City based High Diving Ponies.
