Steve Vai

November 9, 2016

Renowned for his flaming fretwork and guitar virtuosity, axeman Steve Vai has been bending genres and strings for nearly four decades now and shows no signs of slowing down! The guitar god, who cut his teeth as a teen playing the difficult parts no one else could in Frank Zappa's band, is hitting the road to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his seminal LP Passion and Warfare.

Seu Jorge

November 11-12, 2016

Brazilian actor and musician Seu Jorge first gained notice with his role as Knockout Ned 2004's City of God, but it was his work on the soundtrack of Wes Anderson's nautical adventure movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou that made him an international name, covering some of the the great David Bowie's songs acoustically beautifully lilting Portuguese throughout the film.

David Sedaris

November 17-19, 2016

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unusual North Carolina background, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

Pink Martini

December 13, 2016

Pink Martini are the brain child of Thomas Lauderdale, who in the early 1990's was thinking of running for Mayoral office. But he slowly became frustrated and fascinated by the musical entertainment during political society events. So he formed Pink Martini to address this and make music that appeals to everyone, from liberals to conservatives, all over the world. Over 20 years later, they're still going strong!

David Crosby

December 15, 2016

An icon of counter culture and one third of folk's most revered supergroup, David Crosby has been honing his trademark harmonic style since the early sixties. A contemporary of Dylan, it wasn't until he began writing with The Byrds that he truly found his own voice, beginning with his first solo-record 'If Only I Could Remember My Name' in 1971.
