Megafaun drummer Joe Westerlund (who also plays with Califone and Mount Moriah) is finally releasing his solo debut this spring under the moniker Grandma Sparrow. The album, titled Grandma Sparrow & His Piddletractor Orchestra, will be out on May 20 via Matthew E. White's label Spacebomb Records. Check out a bizarre teaser video for the album below.
Westerlund will celebrate the release of the album with two shows at The Pinhook in Durham on May 17 and 18. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig will open both shows. The May 17 show will also include a DJ set by Matthew E. White. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketfly for $10.
