Gig Alerts: The Art of Shooting

Friday, January 15, 2010

Every Friday, we're offering downloadable songs from artists playing in the New York City area that weekend. Here's one from a Brooklyn band with a penchant for the autobiographical song.


The Art of Shooting
"The Birdcage"
Playing FRIDAY at: Southpaw
(125 5th Ave., Park Slope)
Get: Tickets ($8 at door) | Directions

Kelly Irene Corson, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for the trio the Art of Shooting, uses her band as a way to transform formative and sometimes painful life experiences into melodramatic indie rock songs. "The Birdcage" is one such tune. Inspired by Corson's childhood kidnapping by a family member, the track veers from urgent and guitar-driven to quiet and chorale while Corson -- sometimes poetically, sometimes candidly -- sings about the incident.
