Alive After Five: The Shook Twins

Wednesday, June 11


Among the weird totems (a giant, gold egg) and quirky instruments (a squawky telephone/microphone) used by Sandpoint-born, Portland, Ore.-based Katelyn and Laurie Shook, their secret weapon is something few--if any--bands can boast: not only are their singing voices stellar, they were born in near-perfect harmony. The effect of two voices so naturally similar lends a haunting, ethereal quality to their eccentric, inventive brand of soulful, rootsy indie folk. Not to be missed.
