RENO — Duo Nouveau performs Friday at the Knitting Factory. Also performing are Sturdy Beggars, Windel, Mighty Surf Lords and Seth Horan. Duo Nouveau has special roots in Reno. Band members J. Cowel and Justin Kruger were both born into highly musical families. Growing up in California, not too far from one another in Berkeley and Sacramento, Duo Nouveau was always an idea the two have had since they’ve met at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Duo Nouveau members also play with Sol Jibe, one of Reno’s top independent groups. Duo Nouveau performs when time is available. Considering Cowell’s amazing left hand and Kruger’s pocket grooves, the duo is quite a show to be seen.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $6 and can be purchased at http://re.knittingfactory.com.
