September 2017 Residency at the Hideout

I am very excited to announce that I will be doing a residency in September at the Hideout. Here are the details:

Monday, Sept 4th: Dolly Varden will play “The Panic Bell” on the 10th anniversary of the album, followed by a set of new songs slated for our 7th album. I’ve been actively writing and the band has been recording since March. We’re about halfway through making a new record. We’re recording at my home studio, Kernel Sound Emporium. Tickets and more info here

Monday, Sept 11th: Steve Dawson and Mark Caro’s “Take It To The Bridge” Bridge-tacular featuring Kelly Hogan, Casey McDonough, Nora O’Connor, Rachel Drew, Gerald Dowd, Bill Brickey, Alton Smith and others. Based on the title of the songwriting book I co-wrote with Mark Caro, “Take It To The Bridge: Unlocking The Great Songs Inside You,” we’ve asked some of Chicago’s best singers to sing songs that that contain their favorite bridge, the most misunderstood part of a song. This will be a one-of-kind show. Tickets and more info here

Monday, Sept 25: Funeral Bonsai Wedding with Strings. Funeral Bonsai Wedding is me on guitar & vocal, Jason Adasiewicz on vibraphone, Jason Roebke on upright bass and Gerald Dowd on drums (since Frank Rosaly now lives in Amsterdam!) For this show we will be joined by Melissa Bach’s Quartet Parapulie. We’ll play a bunch of new songs as we aim toward recording a new album in 2018, along with songs from our debut album.
