Fronted by Wilco members John Stirratt and Pat Sansone, The Autumn Defense create a sound which both embraces and resists the moods of autumn, and so suggests their name. The multi-instrumental duo chase the sun westward to the Cali coast, gathering inspiration from classic LA pop and well-crafted melody in the 60s and 70s traditions. Between gentle harmonies and instrumental texturing, the associations are tempting: a trace of Beach Boys, Byrds, Bee Gees, Zombies, and Love.

All proceeds from Live at the Edmond Town Hall shows go towards improvement efforts at Newtown’s historic Edmond Town Hall. Built during the Great Depression, this New England landmark has just recently entered into the 21st century with brand new, state-of-the-art sound, power, and Blu-ray systems. Help us continue the work and keep ETH around for future generations.
