Joe's Pub has announced the following upcoming performances:
NOAH & THE MEGAFAUNA
WITH SPECIAL GUEST KAT EDMONSON
February 19 at 7:00pm
A stirring amalgamation of dark indie folk, swinging gypsy jazz and big band orchestration threaded together by a series of apocalyptic allegories, Noah and the MegaFauna’s accomplished debut full-length album, Anthems for a Stateless Nation, was released this past fall on Silence Breaks (The Shivers, Kelli Scarr) and this February they visit Joe's Pub for an intimate performance. A clamorous, whiskey-fueled, horn-laden romp, the LP is 10 tracks of nightmare pop, a pre and post-apocalyptic tale of destruction, displacement, wandering, panic and ultimately redemption filtered through a dizzyingly eclectic array of influences spanning history, cultures and music from around the globe. Kat Edmonson will self release her sophomore album Way Down Low on Spinnerette Records April 10. The native Texan makes not only her songwriting debut on the record but also co-produces the album. The album was recorded at the historic Avatar Studio and Capitol Studios with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke) and producer/bassist Danton Boller.
