A Benefit Show for Folk Musician Erica Buettner with Special Guests Jeffrey Lewis & Charming Disaster

February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 11:45 pm

$15
On Thursday, Feb 23, the Jalopy Theatre and School of Music will host a benefit concert for lyrical poet and songwriter Erica Buettner. The first part of the event will be presented by Katie Down‘s Brooklyn Ukes series. Come at 7pm to participate in Uke Night (no prior ukulele experience necessary).
The benefit show will kick off at 9pm, followed by Jeffrey Lewis and Erica Buettner herself, albeit battling cancer, to share songs off her new album influenced by a 10-year troubadour-tour of Europe. This inspiring evening will be a collection of good vibes and lyrical prose to support one of our local community artists.

Jeffrey Lewis Reviews:
“The Big Apple’s best-kept secret…. Genius-gone-ignored… mind-blowing.” – NME
“Weird? Very… but also downright inspiring” (four of five stars) – Rolling Stone

Erica Buettner Reviews:
“Ginsberg-ghosted Parisian-beat-music” – For Folk’s Sake
“A graceful, intelligent songwriter and a beguiling singer, Buettner…is a song poet, and listening to the way her lyrics glide with such nonchalant ease through these remarkable songs somehow summon to mind, unbidden, that old Jack Kerouac line about ‘beat’ being the shortened form of ‘beatific’”. – Steve Hunt, fRoots
