Mimicking Birds

Saturday, Jan 31 | 8pm

Singer/songwriter Nate Lacy spent the years since his teens exploring his inner world and his connection with the universe at large. The result of his efforts was a small collection of songs that, when finally recorded and released as Mimicking Birds in 2010, received such accolades as Pitchfork’s assessment that the debut LP was “extremely gifted with cyclical melodies: thorny fingerpicked spines around which he can snake a range of sounds simply for ambience.”

IT’S A VARIETY SHOW OF WORDS

Anthology is where stories, poems, music, and comedy overlap in a night of unbridled word-slinging. Anthology is the night we invigorate your mind and teach it new things.

We’ll have performers reading their poetry and stories, doing improv, competing in a bad poetry contest, and playing music throughout the night.

We’ll also announce our writer, poet, and artist in residence for 2015!

Wild Child

Desert Noises

Tuesday, Feb 10 | 8pm

Fiercely independent road warriors Wild Child, an “indie powerhouse,” has spent the past year stepping into that spotlight, playing stages as major as Austin City Limits Music Festival, Wakarusa, Firefly Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Osheaga, and Savannah Stopover.

Behind their second album, The Runaround, the premiere release on Ben Kweller’s Noise Company label, the Austin six piece earned NPR’s Top Ten Songs of 2013 honors for the song “Living Tree,” and saw five additional songs hit number 1 on Hype Machine’s Popular chart.

Since the group’s inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or, PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, everywhere from Prairie Home Companion, to that punk rock club in the part of town your grandma warns you not to go to after dark. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go.

Mouse Powell

Sunday, Feb 22 | 8pm

Having spent nearly two years on the road touring in support of 88 Keys and Counting, Grieves found himself returning home to a fractured reality. Reeling from turbulence in his career and heartbreak in his personal life mixed with coming down from the high of the support he received on the road Grieves conceptualized Together/Apart, an album that would address the bond music creates between each of us as individuals and as a whole despite the many distances we experience be they geographical or emotional.

The end of 2008 saw…
