Singer/songwriter Paleface is often credited as one of the founders of the so-called "freak-folk" movement, a pioneer who influenced later fellow New York artists like Kimya Dawson and company. In fact, he even counted Beck as an early roommate and like-minded musician — and like his buddy, he enjoyed a major-label deal in the '90s. Eventually he decamped to North Carolina, recharged, and regrouped with new energy in the form of female drummer Mo. As a unit, they've taken to crisscrossing the country endlessly, which usually means a multishow South Florida stand at least once a year. This weekend finds them both in Delray Beach and Lake Worth, performing in support of their most recent album for Ramseur Records, One Big Party.
