Duane the Brand New Dog

When: Sat., Jan. 9, 9 p.m. 2016

Since he first appeared on local stages in 2010, Duane Gholston has kept his fans guessing. Though he’s been called “the love child of Grace Jones and David Bowie,” Gholston disavowed the comparison, pursuing his own personal vision with his lo-fi synth and glam alias. After releasing a 7-inch on Jack White's Third Man Records in 2012, Duane got sidetracked by recording company executives who didn’t understand Gholston’s DIY charm. It took a year or two, but the “teenage weirdo” retooled his stage persona and has reappeared as Duane the Brand New Dog. What changed? Gholston is a little older and wiser, but he’s still a force on stage, an impetuous mix of musician and performance artist that can surprise even the most jaded concertgoers.
