Wes, Jay Mankind, Matt Singer, Casey Shea, Derek James & others
Cross Pollination

Big announcement! Wes and I [Jay] have decided to make some big changes to Cross-Pollination. Amid a swirl of emotions, the last shows at Pianos are upon us. We'll be downstairs for the next six weeks wrapping up what some (we) would call a legendary era. We've invited back many old friends and faves. Here's how it looks so far:

AUG 3 :: Matt Singer & Sunroom
AUG 10 :: Cabin & Rana Santacruz
AUG 17 :: Misty Boyce & Luke Wesley
AUG 24 :: TBA & The Canon Logic
AUG 31 :: Chris Cubeta & Casey Shea

Just six more Cross Pollination shows at Pianos in NYC. For those not familiar, CP brings two singer-songwriter types together for individual sets followed by live collaboration (aka "cross pollination"), and they've done it 293 times so far and it's always 100% free. So what next? Well, they said Cross Pollination will continue, but where and when? "That's coming into focus. We'll let you know as blurry colors become sharp lines." Congrats in advance for 300 shows guys.

"Never heard of any of these bands."

What's your point?

"never heard of any of these bands."

always has to be some douche bag on here knocking something they don't know. this is a 6 year old franchise here in the city. in terms of rock and roll time, that's 50 years. Jay and Wes deserve a little love here. they've supported soooo many up and comers.

below are some other folks who've cross pollinated:

Langhorn Slim
Kimya Dawson
Nicole Atkins
My Brightest Diamond
Jukebox the Ghost
Jeff Lewis
Jason Trachtenburg (family slideshow players)

this list goes on and on. . .

if you haven't heard of these folks, try leaving your computer and going to some shows.
