Upcoming events:

Tuesday, April 4th, 9pm - Midnight: The Gershwin Brothers (Lane Steinberg & Dave Foster)
As Lane Steinberg describes their fateful meeting, "Dave Foster and I first met in 2015 when we did the Beach Boys' 'Wild Honey' album with Murderers' Row, a musical collective we're a part of. We started bouncing around song ideas and found we had a good collaborative relationship. Our pal and colleague, Erica Smith, dubbed us the Gershwin Brothers and the name stuck. Steinberg has several underappreciated albums to his credit, the most recent being another pop gem, 8X8's "Infloresence." Foster is a longtime member of Bubble, and contributes sweet Beatlesque guitar riffs to many friends' collaborations. The Gershwin Brothers will be joined by members of Murderers' Row to premiere some of the songs that will be on an upcoming album.

Tuesday, April 11th, 9pm - Midnight: Viking Moses and Hamish Hawk
For many years Baltimore-based Viking Moses (aka Brendan Massei) has been releasing lyrical songs performed with gruffly delicate vocals, accompanied by various configurations of solo rhythmic electric guitar, simple piano or a full band. Viking Moses has also championed a number of Scottish musicians. Hamish Hawk is his latest find, and they've been touring the US together. Edingurgh-based Hawk's solo shows are described as "a colourful and confident display of wit, charm and sensitivity as a songwriter-- A natural storyteller. Schedules being what they are, a WFMU session didn't work out with the duo while they were in the NYC area, so they recorded a special set in Brendan's home studio. Viking Moses and Hamish Hawk "perform" for Irene's show tonight.

Tuesday, April 25th, 9pm - Midnight: The Mitchell Quartet
NYC-based guitarist, composer, singer Robert Mitchell has traveled the world with his melodic music and says he remains ready for more. Mitchell's playing has a cinematic feel, not surprising since he's worked a bit in film scoring, with generous doses of jazz-laiden acoustic improv. Joining Robert are members of e'fessioux, who performed their own great set on Irene's show in January. The Mitchell Quartet plays live on WFMU.
