Greensboro's Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands have a dramatic sense of showmanship. Combining carnival bombast and street-fair humor, the band offers up gypsy folk, pop-rock and the occasional gothic ballad, all united by Bright's accordion. Their delight in contrasting the whimsical and the dark is their best tool, and it's a trick headliners The Old Ceremony know well. Django Haskins and his crew have crafted a catalog that spans from elegant pop to circumspect folk-rock. Their most recent LP, Fairytales and Other Forms of Suicide, is just more than a year old; hear them live to discover what new sliver of the sonic spectrum they've now engaged.
