Chris DuPont to offer 'Anxious Animal' at his CD release party

By Ann Dwyer

Chris DuPont will celebrate his latest album, "Anxious Animal" at a CD release party with the help of Jetty Rae and Abigail Stauffer at the Blind Pig on Thursday.

The University of Michigan graduate counts his influences from ambient to R&B, along with a little Bonnie Raitt, Brian Eno and Bon Iver, according to an interview he did with Michigan Today.

His first album, “Lay No Claim” was recorded in churches, abandoned barns and stairwells--anywhere where he could get a natural reverb.

Watch for an interview with Dupont on on Monday.

Jetty Rae describes her music as "both acoustic and folk with a touch of soul," according to her website. She has also shared the stage with Sarah McLachlan and Miranda Lambert at Lilith Fair 2010.

Ann Arbor singer/songwriter Abigail Stauffer uses her strong voice to reflect the deeply personal and moving songs she writes.

8 p.m. (doors) Thursday, Feb. 28. Blind Pig, 208 S. First St. Cover, $7 (ages 18-20, $10).
