Griffin House

Springfield native Griffin House will be playing the Basement in Columbus on Saturday, April 2. Unlike his recent local appearances with a crack band in tow, House is in the midst of an acoustic tour, performing in intimate venues with little more than a guitar. While his influences run the gamut from Bob Dylan to Pavement, House seems particularly at home delivering his rootsy, pop/rock gems with as little adornment as possible. The Nashville resident passed up a golf scholarship to Ohio University to attend Miami University in Oxford where he began writing songs as soon as he mastered a couple guitar chords. Last year was a big year for House as he was featured in Esquire Magazine and released the alt-country stunner, The Learner. House will appear at the Basement at 391 Neil Ave. in Columbus on April 2 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 DOS.
