BBQ Wednesday Acoustic Series with Sweet Wednesday 

When: Wed., Dec. 19, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: Free
Dave Falk and Lisa Housman are Sweet Wednesday, a Boston-based husband-and-wife duo with an aesthetic drawing on alt country, folk rock and whisky swaying roots aesthetics. Houseman's poetic yet straightforward lyrics touch on the comedy and tragedy of life, from the story of squandered love in "Curious Eyes," to the unfortunate showman of "Jimmy the Spoon's Grand Finale" whose last grand gesture is passing out drunk in some dark alley – "But he didn't mind until he couldn't wake up / To make it for his next show.”" Houseman has robust and pretty drawling vocals that touch higher notes in a more delicate vibrato, while Falk's is a warbling twang, the two intertwining in pleasant harmony or trading off on lead duty. Over the past 11 years, Houseman and Falk – a multi-instrumentalist with skills on guitar, harmonica, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and ukulele – have released three albums as Sweet Wednesday, the latest 2011’s Escaping from the Pale Moonlight.
