In 2006, a young Winston Yellen was invited to a longtime friend’s apartment. They recorded music aimlessly until something exciting emerged. In 2008, they collaborated in Colorado Springs for Night Beds first song, “You Were Afraid”.
After the initial recording, there was a lot of time spent in basements, a lot of alcohol, a lot of irreverent tuning, but not all that much need for talk. Most things were shared and understood.
In more recent happenings, Night Beds has found a home in Nashville after a hiatus spent driving the deserts and prairies and coastal roads of the United States, sleeping in a hatchback or on friendly couches. Night Beds just released Country Sleep on February 5, a full-length album in the spirit of the vagabond, in the winding path to a place of good rest.
With the promise of new tunes and an incredible live performance, Night Beds at Black Cat is one you don’t want to miss.
Night Beds will be at Black Cat DC on Sunday, March 10. Doors are at 8 p.m. and tickets are only $12.
