Louise Goffin and The Contraptionists – TICKETS
Louise Goffin was born in Brooklyn into songwriting royalty. The daughter of Carole King and Gerry Goffin, she was raised in Laurel Canyon during the halcyon days of the singer-songwriter explosion into pop culture. Her debut public performance was opening for Jackson Browne at the Troubadour when she was 17 years old. Paul Givant and Stephen Andrews are The Contraptionists: a two-man, one-man band — a sonic high-wire act driven by percussive precision, soaring, jangling, thumping instrumentation, and bold melodies fused with harmonies. An industrial folk-rock experiment conceived and crafted in the booming halls of their loft in a former factory in downtown Los Angeles. Givant and Andrews have played together for almost a decade in the delightfully over-caffeinated Americana band, Rose’s Pawn Shop.
