James McMurtry

On his latest release Just Us Kids, James McMurtry follows up his critically acclaimed Childish Things with a dozen new, sharply drawn illuminations as he continues to hone and expand his considerable gifts. The self-produced opus (James’ fourth venture pulling strings on both sides of the glass) unquestionably represents his most ambitious, accomplished and ass-kicking presentation to date. Just Us Kids will be the first release for Nashville-based Lightning Rod Records.

Jon Herington Band (of Steely Dan) w/ Mark Cutler and Men of Great Courage

ETHEL with special guest Todd Rundgren (Note: Change in venue and time; see below)

The 1970s were a restless, intelligent, dissatisfied time—a decade of contradictions, a decade of loss, a decade of discovery. Visionary string quartet ETHEL celebrates this vibrant era with an explosive, beautiful collaboration with 1970’s icon Todd Rundgren—a visionary in his own right—in a program that is scheduled to include Lou Harrison’s String Quartet Set (1972), Kimo Williams’s Quiet Shadows, arrangements of music by Sun Ra, and a fascinating new work by rising star Judd Greenstein.

Tickets: $44.50/$42.50/$38
