We are stoked to have Starfruit back in our backyard, more so if it is for such a special occasion as their new single release, A Tall Tree!
Multidisciplinary artist, Tex Patrello, will be opening this special evening.
An ensemble/entity formed in 2016 by frontperson/composer/multi-instrumentalist Ava W Boehme based in Dallas, Texas. The ensemble fluctuates in size and sound, currently performing as a 6-piece group, though occasionally performing with as many as 10 members, delivering high energy, transcendent performances. In a time when many artists minimize their lineups, there’s a communal power in experiencing several people playing together as an orchestrated unit.
From the project’s beginnings, Boehme pushed for Starfruit’s music to be understood as pop music, but has begun to loosen her grip on the categorization conundrum and make the music she wants to make regardless of how it may be perceived. Dallas-based cultural publication, Central Track called Starfruit “one of Dallas’s most adventurous pop groups.”
In the wake of the cancellation of Starfruit’s first national tour in support of Wild West Combat in Spring of 2020, Boehme used her reserves of energy to write and orchestrate Starfruit’s sophomore LP, the title of which has only been shared in person at recent shows. Starfruit released the first single from the album, “Fire Fighter (Hold Me Tighter)” in March 2023, christened by a legendary DIY show on the rooftop of Deep Vellum Books in Dallas. They will celebrate the release of the album’s second single, “A Tall Tree” in the backyard of the Wild Detectives on a warm June evening at the end of Spring.
Composer, pianist, vocalist, and actor based in Dallas, TX. She gained a slow rise of recognition for her EP Yellow Curse, which was quietly released on Bandcamp In 2017 and then later reissued in 2020 via Terrible Records and View No Country. Yellow Curse is praised for its bedroom-produced sound and baroque elements, most notably exemplified in its opening track “Sour Apple March”. Since the release of Yellow Curse, Tex has played sporadic shows, stirring anticipation for an album release, and recently appeared onstage as Ophelia in Shakespeare Dallas’ 2022 production of Hamlet.
