A limited audience of 50 people will be treated to a set by Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg, who will be performing songs from his critically-lauded albums. Palo Santo, his most recent release, was recently re-recorded, re-mastered, and reissued in an expanded edition by Matador Records.

Misra Recording Artist Phosphorescent will open the evening.

Palo Santo was named one of the top ten albums of 2006 by countless critics – including the New York Times’s Kelefa Sanneh. Stephen Thompson of NPR called it the album of the year. Shearwater is working on a follow-up to be released early next year. Jonathan Meiburg is currently on tour playing piano with Okkervil River.

Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent will open the evening. Houck, a former labelmate of Meiburg’s, and a current member of Castanets, was named by the London Standard as "the most significant American in his field since Kurt Cobain". Phosphorescent is about to embark on a US tour in support of its new album, Pride (Dead Oceans Records).
