I’m very proud to announce my next house concert on November 6.
Terri Tarantula – whom you might also know by the more mundane moniker Terri Moeller – will be playing an intimate show (accompanied by a full band) in my home on Saturday, November 6. Terri is a veteran of the Walkabouts and — a personal favorite of mine — Transmissionary Six.
If you’re a fan of the folks I’ve hosted in previous shows, like the legendary Kristin Hersh and Downpilot’s Paul Hiraga, you will instantly fall in love with Terri. As The Stranger said better than I could possibly hope to:
“the Seattle singer-songwriter-drummer-keyboardist’s deep, lugubrious voice—a sensual truce between Nico’s stark, intimate croon and Hope Sandoval’s honeyed glumness—would have connected with [4AD’s] fan base’s appetite for songs tinted darkest blue.”
At the helm of Transmissionary Six, I have found that Terri’s deep and hypnotic voice brought the band’s folky psychedelic sci-fi lyrics to life in a way that was strangely moving. Her new Terri Tarantula project is just as compelling – if you miss out hearing Terri perform in the comfort of my living room, you’ll regret it forever. That’s not overpromising, is it? Trust me: Terri is worth it.
You can also sample some of Terri’s music:
- Upside Down (Terri Tarantula)
- Transmission Line (Transmissionary Six)
- The Daredevil Way (Terri Tarantula):

This is a small house concert, intimately set before our living room fireplace. The audience will be limited to 30 people. As you might expect, 100 percent of the ticket sales go to Terri. CDs will also be available, and you’ll have an opportunity to chat with the band after the show. We’ll have snacks and drinks available as well.
