VersoFest 2024 Schedule

The indie rock/pop band The Lemon Twigs will lead the VersoFest 2024 kickoff concert on Thursday, April 4, in the Library’s Trefz Forum.

Doors open at 7 pm with WFMU and WHUS favorite DJ HYSTERICA spinning her all-vinyl oeuvre of power pop, punk, greasy soul, and yé-yé. The show begins at 8 pm.

Tickets are $20 and available at the link above. If there are any tickets remaining the evening of the show, they will be sold for $30 at the door. Refunds not available within 48 hours of the show.

The Lemon Twigs pull from a wide range of multigenerational inspirations, darting from twee chamber pop balladry to full-on glam punk, mixing plaintive singer-songwriter confessionals with an almost Syd Barrett sense of outré pop. Their sound has said to harken back to the vocal melody of Art Garfunkel and chamber pop of Brian Wilson, and they cite among their influences Moondog and Arthur Russell.

The New York-based group is led by the brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario and is currently touring behind its fourth full-length studio release, Everything Harmony. That follows their 2016 debut, Do Hollywood, and their follow-ups Go to School (2018) and Songs for the General Public (2020).

The Lemon Twigs have toured extensively nationally and internationally, bringing their eclectic sound to a variety of venues, including the Black Cat in Washington, D.C., the Majestic Theater in Madison, Wisconsin, and the Space Ballroom in Hamden, Connecticut. They’re touring the West Coast this winter, with stops in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles, where they’ll be playing the Regent Theatre.

In addition to their original records, The Lemon Twigs have appeared on recent albums by Weyes Blood and Todd Rundgren, who said that the band has “a built-in appreciation for music that is of a couple of generations before theirs. I think they were bored by the music of their own generation, and since you can’t fast forward to the music of the future, you just start going backwards to music that was made before you were born.”


All VersoFest 2024 concerts are co-produced with the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce.
