Father John Misty Poster

Father John Misty

September 20, 2017

Tall and handsome, with a stage presence that veers between Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, J. Tillman is bringing his acclaimed incarnation, Father John Misty to a town near. The one time Fleet Foxes drummer has been steadily releasing solo records since 2004, but it was as Father John that things started to make sense. Conceived after a psychedelic desert experience in the desert deserving of Gram Parsons or one of his Laurel Canyon peers, the sound of Father John Misty is part old school country misery, part retro folk and a whole lot of sardonic wit.

David Sedaris Poster

David Sedaris

November 1, 2017

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, 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. He'll also give readings from his newest novel, Theft By Finding Diaries as part of his live engagements.
