Virginia’s Pontiak opens for Wovenhad at The Shakedown

Pontiak, three brothers who grew up and live on farms in Virginia, perform at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18 at the Shakedown, 1212 N. State St.

Their lifelong closeness yields musical understanding, creative collaboration and personal camaraderie, which pays off in their latest album, “Innocence,” recorded without the aid of computers.

In addition to designing their own album artwork, the band films, edits and directs all their music videos, including their 18-minute “Heat Leisure,” released in 2013 in a collaboration with Merry Prankster Ken Babbs. The film juxtaposed the staid, oft-silent beauty of historic Virginia farms, many of which were the location of Civil War battles, with the live bombastic beauty of a rock show.

Pontiak opens for Wovenhand, fronted by David Eugene Edwards. Cover is $10. Doors open 8 p.m. Details: The Shakedown on Facebook.
