Max’s New Hat

8:00 pm (doors open at 7:30)

Donation: $20 (100% goes to the artist)

Max's New Hat

We are so psyched to be hosting the area debut of Max's New Hat! We saw the band play at a music festival in their homebase of the Catskills last summer and we loved every minute of their performance.

Max’s New Hat is an electro-Balkan band that plays the dance party and wedding music of Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Bulgaria. The band will be six members strong (bass, drums, vocals, accordion, doumbek, sax/clarinet) for this house concert! We will be selling the usual amount of tickets, but we’ll be putting in fewer chairs to allow room for dancing! Not to be missed!

Walter Salas-Humara

Walter Salas-Humara is a founding member and the primary singer/songwriter of the great Americana/roots band The Silos. Walter last played at our house with The Silos way back in 2005!

The Silos began in the mid-1980’s and soon earned critical acclaim and a loyal cult following. The band was voted Best New American Band in Rolling Stone Magazine's Critics' Poll of 1987 and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in 1990. In the decades since, Walter has continued to make numerous albums (solo and with The Silos) while also working as a visual artist.

“His raspy tone provides a rich counterpoint to the genial surrealism, the offhand magical realism, of so many of his lyrics. His words are presented as if they’re describing straightforward events, but they speak a rich, associative poetry that evokes emotions more so than facts. His guitar playing is similarly adaptable – raw and stinging one moment, dreamy and droning the next.” — Rolling Stone editor Anthony DeCurtis (speaking about Walter’s 2014 solo album Curve and Shake)
