Angela James, Ben Clarke (Quarter Mile Thunder) and Jordan Martins played a monthly “Townes Night” at Analogue for a year starting in 2015. They picked some of his bleakest, spacious songs and made them even darker and desperate. On March 14th they will perform a set of Townes Van Zandt songs. Amalea Tshilds and Reid Coker will both play solo sets.
