You may remember Gonzales from his piano battle with Andrew W.K. at Joe's Pub last September, which Gonzales won. Gozales returns to the same venue this February for a four-week, Thursday night residency where he'll present his Piano Talk show, which includes lots of talking, jokes and guests (Jamie Lidell showed up in September) (don't expect a piano battle between him and Andrew again though).

Gonzales' fellow Canadians and Arts & Crafts labelmates Still Life Still have an NYC residency of their own.
