Steve Gunn - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Steve Gunn
We are very excited to announce this intimate residency with Steve Gunn, who will be joined with a full band each week as he works out some new songs and of course, plays some old favorites too. Making these shows even more special, are the remarkable acts that he has asked to join him each week, all of which have inspired him over the years in various ways.

Opening night on October 25th will feature legendary English singer-songwriter, Bridget St. John, who will be performing a rare solo set.

November 1st will bring the incredible guitar duo of Loren Connors and Alan Licht to the stage for the first time since 2010!

And to close it out on November 8th, Little Black Egg, the solo side project of Yo La Tengo’s Georgia Hubley will ease us into the night.

Steve Gunn is a Brooklyn, NY based musician whose work is featured on Matador Records.
James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg
Amsace, the second album of astonishing duets by guitarists James Elkington (who has toured and/or recorded with Jeff Tweedy, Richard Thompson, and Steve Gunn, among others) and Nathan Salsburg (an accomplished soloist deemed by NPR “one of those names we’ll all associate with American folk guitar”) is a sublime suite of nimble, filigreed compositions by two singular stylists. Belying its title—“ambsace” is the lowest throw of dice; snake eyes—the record thrives on a gentle empathy and generosity of spirit, sitting sneakily protean original compositions alongside gorgeous arrangements of songs by Duke Ellington and The Smiths at the same big hand-hewn table. It is set for release September 18th via Paradise Of Bachelors
Mind Over Mirrors - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Mind Over Mirrors
The new album by the ever-evolving project of Jaime Fennelly is his most ambitious and spellbinding set of roiling, meditative recordings to date, and the first to supplement his foundational arsenal of Indian pedal harmonium, analog synthesizers, and incantatory voices with a full ensemble, including Janet Beveridge Bean(Eleventh Dream Day), Jim Becker (Califone), Haley Fohr (Circuit des Yeux), and Jon Mueller (Death Blues). Undying Color braids folk and formal, praise and play, within its heady swells and troughs, invoking American vernacular musical traditions and pulsating avant-garde electronics alike. With prayerful patience and ceremonial gravity, it conjures and celebrates the cyclical rhythms of nature: tidal surges, human breathing, cicadas in the wilderness gloaming.
