JULIAN LAGE***This show has been moved to December 18th with NELS CLINE.

Whether he's playing his Linda Manzer electric archtop guitar, writing with his rare 1934 R.A. Mango, which he used to compose "233 Butler" (Lage recorded the track on his Manzer), or the 1932 Gibson L-5 heard on the tension-filled "Telegram" (inspired by Garry Harrison's "Red Prairie Dawn"), Lage brings a purity of tone and consistency of attack to everything in his repertoire.
