Concerts, Featured, Music, Snob Theater

You are cordially invited to another classy night of music and humor hosted by none other than Snob Theater. This night of smart humor and brilliant music will be accompanied by Dhaya Lakshminarayanan (SF Sketchfest, High School Quiz Show, NPR), Karl Hess (Montreal Just For Laughs, G4 TV, Bridgetown Comedy Festival), Mike Drucker (wrote for SNL, The Onion, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), and the amazing Rory Scovel (Comedy Central’s The Half Hour, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, CONAN).

And of course our musical guests will include dark folk artists Whiskerman and Tea Leaf Green lead songwriter and keyboardist Trevor Garrod.

This is a rare chance to experience these artists in an intimate environment, in affect, seating is very limited.

WHISKERMAN

 

Possibly one of the most under rated Bay Area acts, Graham Patzner and crew aka Whiskerman will make any of your favorite folk rock acts tremble at the amount of talent these guys possess. After recording one of my favorite albums of last year, the band has since toured the West Coast all the while spreading their dark folk music across this great land. These guys need to be heard.

MP3: Whiskerman – Blind Saint from Whiskerman (2011)

TREVOR GARROD

 

Better known for his lyrical stylings in the massive folk band Tea Leaf Green, Trevor Garrod is also a gifted singer-songwriter that recalls a young Paul Simon with an imagination that can expand the listener’s mind. The 2010 album Miss Fortune is a gentle and modestly thematic release that touches on the end of relationships and the loneliness of a bad day. We at Snob Theater are honored to have such a talented songwriter grace our stage this Friday night.
