MATTHEW DE GENNARO In-Store Performance

This is short notice, but Treehouse is very excited to host an intimate in-store performance by Matthew De Gennaro on Monday night.

De Gennaro has a couple of releases on Soft Abuse, a label run by our very own Chris Berry, so we'll let Chris take it from here:

"Matthew De Gennaro got his start in the public eye creating harmonic drones in tandem with NZ underground legend Alastair Galbraith. Since then he's focused primarily on solo recordings that he writes, records & (largely) self-publishes from his home - a converted 19th c. schoolhouse - in rural Michigan.

Soft Abuse released what will likely be his masterpiece (no offense MDG! -ed.),
Chuang Tzu Motherfucker, last year. The out-of-time compositions could almost have come from some long lost 78s, which shouldn't discount Matthew's singular voice and particularities. The atmosphere of that record carries great heft, & his playing on a whole host of instruments (viol, guitar, organ, etc.) really shines.

The man does not tour, really, but has made a few appearances in Minneapolis/Saint Paul in the last year, most recently at the Old Familiar Chime festival at the Turf Club. As luck would have it Matthew is passing through again out of the blue & so Treehouse has welcomed him for a low-key Monday night performance at the store. This is free & all ages & we'll have copies of much of his catalog - CDs, LPs and cassettes - on hand for purchase. Begins promptly at 6:30. Hope to see you there!"
