Paleface (click for more info)
The Spring 2009 Hat Trick Concert Series continues TONIGHT with Paleface! Schooled personally by Daniel Johnston, Paleface was discovered at an NYC open mic in 1990. He soon became the first Anti-folk artist signed to major labels, followed by college radio hits and national tours with the likes of Billy Bragg and The Breeders. This show benefits the DAAC (Division Ave. Arts Cooperative), representing the community with open and accessible involvement through art and music, valuing new and different creative perspectives. That's Paleface, at One Trick Pony, TONIGHT at 7:30pm. The Hat Trick Concert series is sponsored by the law firm of Rhoades McKee, with audio support from Mark Swanson and lodging provided by Peaches Bed & Breakfast. For more information, please visit the concert page at wyce.org.
