Kevin Barker w. Robert Lowe + Ryan Francesconi & Neal Morgan – 3.16.10

I know many a people in Burlington had high hopes that the Joanna Newsom tour would make its way to Burlington this March. Looked as though it was almost doable but just fell a little short this time through. Toronto, Montreal, Cambridge and NYC have just a little bit more pull than we do unfortunately.

Even though we’re missing the bigger show, we will have the opportunity to catch some of Joanna’s supporting cast when they roll through the Monkey House on their night off between Montreal and Cambridge on March 16th.

Kevin Barker is coming back to The Monkey House! Last time through was a solo affair with Happy Birthday and Paper Castles on the bill.

This time is just as impressive.

Kevin will be joined by Robert Lowe (aka Lichens).

PLUS a few of their friends/ band mates on tour with Joanna Newsom will be rolling through for sets as well.

Ryan Francesconi (acoustic instruments) and Neal Morgan (drums + voice).

This will be great.

Appreciate performers doing their own things on their nights off from the larger events.
