Event Pick: Car Seat Headrest with Gold Connections at Brown’s Island

June 30, 6:30 p.m.

Originally from Leesburg but now based in Seattle, Car Seat Headrest is the acclaimed indie rock group of prolific songwriter Will Barnes — known by the stage name Will Toledo — who signed with Matador records in 2015. A thoughtful and imaginative lyricist, Barnes is the kind of introspective, self-conscious rocker with all the right influences who makes critics swoon to his melodic and occasionally abrasive guitar noodling. Come check out his home state return at Friday Cheers on Brown’s Island on June 30. Charlottesville-based musician, Will Marsh, who just signed to Fat Possum, opens with his own project Gold Connections at 6:30 p.m. with Car Seat Headrest starting at 8. $10.
