Jonah on stage with Far at Mercury Lounge (more by Chloe Rice)
Jonah Matranga has a new LP entitled You're All Those Things And Then You're None... or is it a double album? The LP, available in two forms, has one version that is Matranga "solo-style, just me and a guitar" while the second "features vocal and instrumental contributions from fans & friends all over the world". Get a copy of the new LP in all of its various incarnations (vinyl, CD, v1.0, v2.0) at Matranga's site.
Matranga has a few dates scheduled across the US and in the UK as well. In early May he comes east to play NJ, Philly and NYC. That includes Maxwell's on May 4th and Mercury Lounge on May 8th. Tickets for Maxwell's are on sale, as are the Philly tix. Mercury Lounge tickets go on sale Friday (4/15) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Speaking of solo 90's frontmen playing Mercury Lounge, don't forget that Tim Barry of Avail has a show coming up soon. Josh Small (who also plays with Tim) opens the April 16th show, as does Jenny Owen Youngs. Tickets are still on sale for the NYC gig which is part of a handful of dates Tim has scheduled this month.
