May 11, 2017: Meaghan Burke: Creature Comforts Album Release
Ticket Price: $16.00
Doors at 9PM
Show at 9:30PM
Singing cellist Meaghan Burke returns to Joe’s Pub to celebrate the release of her long awaited second album, Creature Comforts. Straddling the worlds of contemporary chamber music, grunge, cabaret, blues, and free jazz, the album brings together musicians from New York and Vienna in a tragicomic musical funhouse of creaturely drones, off-kilter waltzes, and distorted love songs. Meaghan will be joined by a band of her dearest collaborators from the album, including fellow Joe’s Pub veterans The Rhythm Method string quartet, steel-string guitarist Zeke Healy, bass clarinettist Carlos Cordeiro, drummer-percussionist Peter Wise and featuring special guest Protestant Work Ethic (Austria) on vocals and banjo.
