Ryan Paul & THE ARDENT - Patches & Gretchen

This week we will be performing with the critically acclaimed Patches & Gretchen. Gretchen Seichrist is Aimee Mann’s sister.

In describing Patches & Gretchen, the Star Tribune said, “Imagine Chrissie Hynde if she were really into barbecue, or Patti Smith if she knew how to make hot dish, and you get an idea of the odd charm and meaty power.” Yeah. That. But in a rad sorta way.

I remember seeing Gretchen posting video after video of her songs on facebook. The woman is certainly prolific.

When we juggled the idea of where we wanted to do this gig, Palmer’s came up. I’ve never played in there. I haven’t actually been in there since college.
