About the Show and the Artist:

Shaki Presents!

Amazing night with all-star line up! Meg Baird and Chris Forsyth will be sharing an all-star band including Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, bass), Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker, drums), and Charlie Saufley (Heron Oblivion, guitar). Collaborations and sitting in, to be sure...

Chris Forsyth
Chris Forsyth connects the dots between between anthemic art rock, chiming atmospherics, and motorik precision in taut compositions and mercurial improvisations that have earned the Philadelphia-based guitarist a unique reputation as a leading guitar stylist for jam and non-jam band fans alike. His newest studio album Evolution Here We Come, featuring contributions from Douglas McCombs (Tortoise), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate), Linda Pitmon (Baseball Project), Tom Malach (Garcia Peoples), Stuart Bogie (Antibalas), and Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker), is out August 26, 2022 on No Quarter.

“…a scrappy and mystical historian… His music humanizes the element of control in rock classicism (and) turns it into a woolly but disciplined ritual.”
-NY Times

“…a near-perfect balance between 70s rock tradition and present day experimentation”

“…one of rock’s most lyrical guitar improvisors” 
-NPR Music

Chris Forsyth “Evolution Here We Come" out Aug 26 on No Quarter.

Meg Baird
Since co-founding Philadelphia's luminary psychedelic folk collective Espers, Meg Baird has been steadily creating a body of solo and collaborative work within folk, acoustic, electrified and underground music traditions. She has recorded with harpist Mary Lattimore, helped form Heron Oblivion as a drummer and vocalist, and has continued to create her own solo work featuring her beguiling guitar and song-writing. In her upcoming tour, Meg explores her solo work through the lense of her formidable past as a collaborator by creating her own unique version of a band with guest performers Chris Forsyth, Ryan Jewel, Doug McCombs and Charlie Saufley. 

"Meg Baird makes music that's diametrically opposed to the grind, the type you listen to when you want to leave the working world behind."
-NPR Music

"You may well feel that you have heard music like this before. But you may still notice the steady, settled authenticity of its mood. This is music that knows no anxiety."
-The New York Times

Junk Orbit
Kryssi and Tony's duo! Based out of New Haven, CT and Springfield, MA, Junk Orbit are Kryssi Battalene (Headroom, Mountain Movers, Loose Trucks) and Tony Pasquarosa (Crystalline Roses, Burnt Envelope, World Domination, Frozen Corn, Gluebag, SQRM, Weeping Bong Band, etc.).
