Glen Phillips & Chris Barron at The Flying Monkey
November 20, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) & Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) perform an intimate live show in Plymouth, NH!
Glen Phillips has always been a courageous and inviting songwriter. During his years as lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, the band’s elegant folk/pop sound and his honest, introspective lyrics helped them forge a close bond with their fans. Since starting his solo career, Phillips has pared his music down to its emotional core, concentrating on the simple truths of love and relationships, with a profound spiritual understanding.
The zeitgeist is a moving target, and Chris Barron has always been a crack shot. The New York songwriter is no longer the debutant who set out on the circuit’s sharp end in 1988 with $100, a battered acoustic and a headful of the alt-rock anthems that would elevate Spin Doctors to global stardom. He’s a veteran approaching 50, living in a world changed beyond recognition, compelled to write the music that chronicles the here-and-now. As far back as he can remember, he’s had a hunger driving him onward, towards something just out of reach. In 2017, it propels him to Angels and One-Armed Jugglers (released October 20 on Chrysanthemum Records), the culmination of a lifetime’s craft and a record both contemporary and classic.
