Far's Jonah Matranga attempts to serenade the crowds on Houston St.
Jonah Matranga is back on the east coast in August with two solo shows scheduled in the NYC-area: a late show at Mercury Lounge on August 10th (tickets) and Maxwell's on August 8th (tickets). The shows will act as a primer for Jonah's new LP You're All Those Things and You're None, which will be "released in a new way" on August 11th. More on that soon. All dates below...
Meanwhile, Far's new album At Night We Live is out NOW via Vagrant Records. The band is currently hosting a contest for a fan-made video for the song "Deafening", choose your favorite.
Far made a triumphant return in late Oct 2009 at two NYC shows, one opening for Thursday at Bowery Ballroom and a second and more intimate show headlining Mercury Lounge with Campbell Apartment and Last Days of Empire on 10/25. Check out pics from Mercury and all current Jonah dates below...
