David Dondero 10pm
Mikael Jorgensen (Wilco, Pronto) 9pm
Obo Martin 8pm

doors 7:30pm


Few songwriters have experienced and expressed the sinking depths and uplifting optimism of humanity like David Dondero, and his ability to shine a light on the human condition (his own included) is inspiring. Dondero is best known for his narrative tales of America. Having spent most of his life on the road, Dave uses his staggering lyrical talent to paint tales of life in the US of A through clever word play and sarcastic humor about some of life’s most sensitive subjects.

We are pleased as punch to announce the official release of All is Golden from Pronto, the solo project of Mikael Jorgensen, keyboardist & laptopper for Wilco. All is Golden is a 70's-inspired tome that came together with the help of members of Iron & Wine, Califone, and Antibalas. It is the sound of waking up and moving on, cross-country trips to California, black days and blue nights giving way to better times and warmer promises. It's remembered AM-radio, respectfully and earnestly employed to communicate something timeless.

Obo Martin's music envelopes you like the light of a harvest moon. His honesty is as warm and comforting as a campfire and his style is as unpredictable as the storyteller who spins yarn around it.
