If you don't recognize Chris Schlarb's name, it's because he's the kind of man whom music flows through, rather than the sort who spends his time corralling sound into the spotlight. 

Guitarist and producer Chris Schlarb's collaborated with Wilco's Nels Cline, Dirty Projectors' Dave Longstreth, Daedelus, the Philip Glass Ensemble's Mick Rossi, Sufjan Stevens, and pedal steel guitarist Dave Easley. That list of collaborators speaks to his eclectic sensibility; under his own name and with the groups Create(!) and I Heart Lung, he's blurred avant-garde jazz into electronic ambient, minimal classical and pop-folk. Schlarb's music has a pensive, numinous feel, emphasizing fine-grained and muted, sparkling textures.

Some nice things people have said about our dear Dana:

"Her music is gentle yet intricate: a rusticated chamber music using bajo, cello, and staggered, contrapuntal vocal harmonies with the other women in her band, in songs full of wordless interludes that unfurled a skein of possibilities." - John Pareles - New York Times

"With backing vocalists Gina Dvorak and Karla Manzur helping evaporate Falconberry’s ornate ballads into a cappella curlicues, the audience fell silent enough to hear the afternoon breeze bending tree branches overheads." - Chris Richards - Washington Post

"…My new favorite is Dana Falconberry." - Robin Hilton - NPR All Songs Considered

A beautiful Beautiful BEAUTIFUL night of music to come!
We are honored to host our dear friends and incredible musicians, Vandaveer.

In case you don't already know:
Vandaveer is the song-singing, record-making, globetrotting project penned and put forth by folk-pop tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger. Born in cloudy Ohio, raised in Kentucky, and currently camped out in the nation's capital, Vandaveer offers up melodic Americana that is both haunting and easy, forlorn and welcoming, with stories as universal as the songs they inhabit. Vandaveer shapeshifts from stage to studio and back with a host of revolving characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, offering up the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden.


This AND Denver's beloved Natalie Tate to open!!
You know her, you love her.
You don't know her or love her yet? Here:

Join us for this gorgeous night.

Love, Leon
