East coasters, rejoice! After more than a decade as a ﬁxture in Philadelphia’s musical scene, Meg returns to its warm and loving embrace, and more, this May. With the release of her latest solo offering Furling in October and a west coast run already under her belt, Meg Baird is headed back to the Atlantic–this time with esteemed duo Damon & Naomi! Since the demise of Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi have worked as a duo, exploring folk music, psychedelia, and collaborations with like-minded musicians. No stranger to allied partnership herself, Baird will perform not only her own solo sets but joint performances with Damon & Naomi, too!
Of this exciting combination, Damon Krukowski writes: “We love Meg the person and we love Meg the singer and we love Meg’s new album! Psyched to be doing these shows together, first in a while for us and can’t think of a better way to reenter the rhythm of performing than to be with a friend. Naomi and Meg have collaborated previously, on two videos together – and did you know both Meg and I like to play drums…and Charlie Saufley will be joining Meg with electric guitar? So you never know what we might all cook up to do together while we have the chance. ”
