This week I'm taking myself out for a rare midweek break. The Kent Stage is celebrating its 6th Birthday, and as part of their fabulous lineup, they're presenting The Punch Brothers, a new lineup featuring former Nickel Creeker Chris Thile (mando), banjo man Noam Pikelny, former Stringduster Chris Eldridge (guitar), Leftover (Salmon) Greg Garrison, and Violinist Gabe Witcher.
Take a listen there on the link, or visit the official website here. If you like to think of your self as an outside the boxer music fan, get thee to the Stage at 8 p.m. Wednesday -- that's tomorrow! -- April 2 (no foolin'!).
The Punch Brothers have been making the rounds on Leno, NPR, and a host of other media outlets to share their unusual brand of stringfusion and to pimp their release, titled simply, Punch. So if you can, punch out a little early and stop by.
