A solo acoustic show from Neil Halstead featuring songs off his excellent new recording Palindrome Hunches. A former cult hero in the shoegazer world of rock with the band Slowdiive Neil returns to the intimacy of the Lizard Lounge after performing here a number of years ago with the band The Mojave 3. We are thrilled to welcome back this unique and gifted artist.

"Nylon Rock"
Over the past 23 years, Neil Halstead has earned an ardent following by making intensely atmospheric music with a near-hypnotic power. Hailed as "one of Britain's most respected songwriters," the singer/guitarist served as frontman and primary songwriter for Slowdive (the legendary shoegaze outfit whose seminal studio albums include 1993's Souvlaki, co-produced by Brian Eno). After its 1995 breakup, Slowdive morphed into the Halstead-helmed Mojave 3 and released a string of highly celebrated records that merged jangly alt-country with dusky dream-pop. In 2006, Mojave 3 went on indefinite hiatus, prompting Halstead to embark on an acoustic-driven solo career marked by British-folk-inspired melody and ethereal nylon-string strumming.

L.A.-based singer-songwriter Jim Hanft's songs carry both the comfort of familiarity and the excitement of discoveryand they're gaining him a stream of praise from fans, tastemakers and even Hollywood film executives seduced by his honestly told stories of life's quiet moments and turning points, relations and temptations, loves and losses. Accompanied by musical partner Samantha Yonack's pure harmonies, Hanft creates a modern musical landscape rooted in the raw, yet nuanced strength of his words and performance.  He is currently on tour supporting his new album, WEDDINGS OR FUNERALS, recorded at Stockholm's Decibel Studios and produced by Lasse MÃ¥rten (Lykke Li, Shout Out Louds, Peter, Bjorn & John).
