While each artist is a prominent figure in his own music sphere, they have come together as a unified ensemble on a most remarkable and organic cross-genre project. The music feels both new and familiar – it’s composed and improvised, uptown and down home, funky and pastoral and above all, uniquely American.

We have seen the list and there are a number of theatres in almost every major city in America, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Austin, Texas, and many many others.  Please click here to see the cities and theatres and then go here to enter your zip code, and the list will come up so that you can purchase off of FathomEvents’ website.

Typically these types of events, simulcasting from the East Coast all over the country, sell out.  It is wise not to just show up and try to get a ticket unless you are planning to buy someone else’s unused ticket.  The ticket will run you more than a movie but way less than seeing it in person. 

You will get the comraderie of seeing it with other folks in a performance venue, without traveling to New York or Boston.
