An evening with Carissa's Wierd founders Mat Brooke and Jenn Champion (Celebrating 20th anniversary of the album Ugly But Honest)


Carissa's Wierd founders Mat Brooke and Jenn Champion reunite for an intimate set celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album Ugly But Honest. They will play curated songs from the Carissa's Wierd catalogue stripped down as a duo and share some stories about making that first record. Carissa’s Wierd was founded by Jenn Champion and Mat Brooke in 1995 not long after the pair met in Tucson, Arizona. Brooke and Champion ended up living and playing music in Seattle where they refined their songwriting prowess and musical aesthetic. Known for their intertwining guitars and vocals and acute sadness, the band made an indelible mark on the city and it’s scene. Over the 8 years the band existed the line up was often changing but included mainstays Sarah Standard, Jeff Hellis, Ben Bridwell, Sera Cahoone. The band earned a cult following across the globe with albums ‘Ugly But Honest’, ‘Songs About Leaving’ and ‘You Should Be At Home Here’. In 2010 Seattle darling record label, Hardly Art rereleased the band’s (now sold out) discography on LP.
