Chris Thile on stage with Punch Brothers (more by Winnie Cheung)
Chris Thile

Tickets are still available (back on sale) for tonight's Chris Thile/Michael Daves show at Rockwood Music Hall, day three of their three day stint at the venue in celebration of their debut duo record Sleep with One Eye Open. Out now via Nonesuch Records, it was "recorded live to tape over four days at Jack White's Third Man studio in Nashville, is a collection of 16 traditional tunes by bluegrass legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs." You can watch and listen to them discuss the record in one of the videos below. The others are them performing songs from it.

If you miss these shows, don't fear. Chris Thile will team with Michael Daves for another NYC show at The Bell House on July 20th. Tickets are on sale now. That's one new date added to the always-expanding intinerary of Chris Thile whose Punch Brothers project was also just announced on the lineup of this summer's free Celebrate Brooklyn concert series. They play June 30th with Justin Townes Earle and The Hackensaw Boys.

P.S. if you're going to Rockwood tonight, consider making it a double header, as Ben Sollee plays a show at the venue tonight too, his first of two nights in a row. Tickets are still available for that too.

All dates and videos below...

Can we stop with the wearing a suit and tie while performing on stage finally? No need to look even more like a douche than you already are.

These two are some of the most talented, passionate and entertaining musicians you'll ever have the opportunity to see in tiny space like rockwood music hall. If you can, go see them. You will be happy you did.

LOVE both of these guys, and their new record is amazing. Is anyone else really annoyed that its not out on vinyl though? Seems like a bluegrass record, of all records, should be on vinyl no?

What do you want them to wear, pajamas? Fuck you, some people like to dress up on stage. Big deal.

Of course they'll agree. They already also agree with me that your trendy manner of responding makes you sound (not "look", you can't SEE who's making an anonymous comment) like more of a douche than I thought the band members are! Congrats!

Unlike 90% of shitty hipster bands, these two actually have enormous amounts of talent so they can wear whatever the fuck they want and play whatever the fuck they want.

If you want to get upset about band fashion, yell at the thousands of poser bands that all dress like Led Zeppelin but can't play guitar if their life depended on it.

@5:51 your logic is that of a nyu galatin dropout. i suggest you stick to making my grande lattes and stop commenting.

@551 is just jealous he sucks at guitar. He probably still has a popular Bushwick band, though :-/

Why all you tykes so uppity? It's not like I was bitching about cross-dressing transexuals on stage. I know that hits home for yous.

People that whine about Chris Thile, one of the most talented and inoffensive musicians around right now, deserve to be bitched at.

But we are sorry. You can go back to your McKibben loft and listen to Wavves.

@1:42 thank you, seriously.

And you certainly got the bitch, pat down. But I know trannies can't menstruate, so I know it must be hard. There there.
