A slow burning, dark and melodic mayhem. From a twisted, run-down big top to the sad whiskey smashed rooms of last chance losers. Boxcar Saints conjures together the roots of American music with South-of-the-border longings and desperate gypsy midnight howls. The San Francisco based Boxcar Saints was formed in 2001 by Dave Hudson (vocals, guitar), Jason Schwartz (bass), and Rich Douthit (drums). The band came to be from a collaboration on Hudson's second release, New Sickness on Rhyolite Records. Boxcar Saints now includes guitarist Roger Riedlbauer (the Cannery, Transmission, Jolie Holland). Guest members have included Saxophonist Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Transmission), violinist Margeaux Ostrovsky (Pickpocket Ensemble), and trumpeter Ara Anderson (Tom Waits, Boostamante, Iron And The Albatross). Boxcar Saints has been a fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene since their inception. They have been featured on the cover of the SFWeekly, on the in-flight playlist of Lufthansa airlines, and have shared bills with a wealth of talented local and touring artists. Last Things was released on Grand Mal Records in 2004. Their new release, No Water, is available now.
