  • Shaun Majumder
    March 29, 2015

If we had our way – and believe me, we’ve tried – we’d have Shaun Majumder and his This Hour Has 22 Minutes pals at The Carleton 3 times a week. Apparently, that’s not realistic but we do have them for one last New Material Only night on Sunday, March 29th. The title of the (more…)

Ron Hawkins CD Release Show


  • Ron Hawkins
    March 27, 2015
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Ron Hawkins is, for my money, the best songwriter in the country. There, I said it. His body of work – from The Lowest of the Low, through The Rusty Nails, his solo work and what he’s now producing – stacks up against anything I’ve heard over the past two plus decades. His brand-spanking-new album (more…)
