Breakup rock: Dead Man Win­ter

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Dave Si­mon­ett mar­ried young, had some kids, and re­cently got a di­vorce — which he chron­i­cles in melan­cholic yet up­lift­ing gui­tar-driven Min­neapo­lis rock on his new al­bum Fur­nace (Gnd­wire Records). Cathar­tic rather than venge­ful, Fur­nace has drawn com­par­isons to Bob Dy­lan’s Blood on the Tracks for its broad emo­tional range and em­pa­thy for all par­ties in­volved in a breakup. It is Si­mon­ett’s sec­ond solo al­bum un­der the moniker Dead Man Win­ter; he is also known as the front­man of Tram­pled By Tur­tles. Dead Man Win­ter plays at 7:30 p.m. on Satur­day, April 1, at the Bridge at Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany (37 Fire Place). Another Min­nesota mu­si­cal act, the Erik Kosk­i­nen Duo, opens the all-ages show. Tick­ets are $19 in ad­vance, $22 at the door; visit www .santafebrew­ing.com.
