Legendary 6 and 12 string guitarist brings his American Primitive style of guitar to the Lehr Gallery at the Susquehanna Art Museum.
Glenn's album, "Fleeting" was named as one of the "Top 10 Solo Guitar Records of 2016" by NPR.
Premier Guitar Magazine writes, "Whether he’s channeling ecstatic visions of his youth—dappled with hazy vestiges of Jimi Hendrix, Captain Beefheart, Harry Partch, Tim Buckley, and Can—or paying direct tribute to his friend and mentor, John Fahey, Jones can make a guitar sing with an almost otherworldly expressiveness that only comes from years of practice, dedication, and experimentation"
Glenn is touring in support of his new album "Vade Mecum" which will be released on Thrill Jockey Records this year.
Also on the bill is Jen Starsinic, a musician from Harrisburg, now residing in Nashville, Tennessee.
...establishes the guitar aficionado as nearly being in a world of his own as far as technical prowess and emotional resonance goes... a wonderful and mesmerizing album of masterful guitar work from one of contemporary music's finest... a graceful, nuanced, tranquil affair... Audiversity.com
...captivating... Jones' slide work on the resonator guitar sounds especially meaty, and when all six, and sometimes 12, strings start chiming as he fingerpicks, the effect is shimmering. Mike Shanley, Harp
Besides his determined, dexterous finger picking, Jones uses half-capos and alternative tunings to create incandescent sitar-like sounds... these shimmering musical meditations evoke a wondrous tranquility that's simply soulful. Linda Laban, Boston Globe
Efrim Manuel Menuck (of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion) returns to Harrisburg for a solo show on Wednesday June 13th. Following a series of acclaimed live performances in early 2018, Efrim Manuel Menuck takes the material from his latest album Pissing Stars on the road once again with new shows this spring and summer alongside Kevin Doria. As the co-founder of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, Menuck has rightfully earned a strong following among fans of political punk, post-rock and avant-noise songcraft. His 25 years of trailblazing, uncompromising sonic output is pushed to new limits on Pissing Stars, as Menuck ventures into territory that finds him at his most adventurous and vulnerable.
Boat People and Moviate proudly present an evening with Julianna Barwick in the Cathedral Room at Der Maennerchor In Harrisburg, PA!
$8 advance $10 day of show 21+
Since her 3rd album, Nepenthe, was released in 2013, Julianna has toured with Sigur Rós, sung with children’s choirs around the world, recorded and performed with the Flaming Lips, recorded Bach’s “Adagio from Concerto In D Minor” on Sony Masterworks, played piano and sang with Yoko Ono and brewed a wasabi beer, Rosabi, with Dogfish Head.
Barwick’s diverse past has also included collaborative albums with Ikue Mori and Helado Negro, a remix commission from Radiohead and her song “Vow” remixed by Diplo. Upcoming Barwick projects include a film score and a music box.
Pitchfork: “…among the best and most artful ambient music being made today.”
Diplo: “Barwick’s music is like Care Bears making love.”
Wayne Coyne: “I’m a fan of what she does…she’s really pretty crazy, and weird, and funny.”
NPR: “Downright medicinal, altering the listener’s surroundings in ways that make them uncomfortable, yet still wondrously inviting.”
New York Times: “Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Bjork or Yoko Ono”.
Mary Lattimore is a harpist living in Philadelphia. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, “The Withdrawing Room”, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings.
Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa.
Mary has been a part of soundtrack projects including the Valerie Project, Lopapeysa, a film by David Kessler set in Iceland, and the film score for Marina Abramovic: the Artist is Present, a documentary about the artist.
In March 2013, she accompanied Nick Caves beautiful horse soundsuits for the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Station in New York City.
Her 2014 record Slant of Light with guitarist/synth player/producer Jeff Zeigler was released by Thrill Jockey, which was followed by the two collaborating on a track for Ghostly Swim 2. Mary and Jeff also composed a score to Philippe Garrels 1968 experimental silent film Le Revelateur, and debuted it in Marfa, Texas along with the film. They have since performed it Chicago, Philadelphia, and early 2015 in Los Angeles.

from San Diego, THE ALBUM LEAF (on Sub Pop, Arena Rock Recordings) 21+ show. 10PM. FREE. At the Millworks,
"For musicians, a 10-year anniversary is a time to look back on their first album and see how far they've come from those earliest recordings. The new Album Leaf album A Chorus of Storytellers, marks the first decade for the group led by Jimmy LaValle. In those 10 years, LaValle has gone from initial improvised home recordings to now five complete studio albums, from opening slots to leading an incredible world-touring band to the stage at Red Rocks, headlining the Metamorphose festival in Japan and performing at the Hollywood Bowl with the Incredible String Band. LaValle’s well-earned reputation as a crafter of impeccable sonic imagery even led to a critically-acclaimed show at the Seattle International Film Festival where The Album Leafperformed a live score for the 1927 silent film Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" .

"The best artists, be they musicians, painters or filmmakers, never stop striving to learn more about their chosen craft. In that respect, Geoff Farina is one of the greats. If Farina has learned anything in his 20-plus years as a musician, it's how to turn the worst parts of life into the greatest art." -Alternative press
"No longer the artist who dabbles, his production is enriched and amplified by the harmonization of all the false starts, fragmentary ideas, and assimilated styles that he's amassed in his pursuit of transcendence" - Pitchfork
Singer/guitarist Geoff Farina (Karate, Secret Stars, Glorytellers) teamed up with drummer John Dugan (Chisel, Edsel) and bassist Pete Croke (Brokeback, Tight Phantoms) to form Chicago's Exit Verse early in 2013. On their debut album, Farina belts out catchy rockers with more vigor than he has in two decades. The album's concise, gutty anthems ring of the mid-90s when the guitar-driven Karate was shaking basements and DIY venues across the country. The angular rhythms of "Seeds" and the simmering "Fiddle & Flame" evoke the Karate of In Place Of Real Insight, but the new band demonstrates stronger rock roots, and resounds the classic rock radio and 70s/80s punk vinyl of Farina's youth. Farina still delivers his songs with the urgency of Karate's most bellicose moments, but with less self-consciousness and more determination.
