Come see World Blanket headline Union Hall in Brooklyn on Thursday, April 11th!

Tickets are available now!  Buy them HERE.

This show is very special to us because Union Hall is in Park Slope, a neighborhood a couple of us call home, and Union Hall is one of our favorite local bars.  It’s also a very intimate room with some of the best sound in New York City.

The show features two amazing special guests: Wild Leaves and The Inner Banks!

Doors are at 7:30.  Wild Leaves go on at 8pm, The Inner Banks at 9pm and World Blanket at 10pm.  There is an $8 cover at the door if you do not have tickets.

First, let me say, work is still be completed on World Blanket’s 3rd album, Create/Roadshow.  It will be finished soon.  But there is still work to be done.

Meanwhile, unfortunately, we’ve gone from dozens of shows a month to nearly none at all.  So to fill that void, I announce “Baby Blanket.”

Late last year, I purchased a Little Martin Acoustic Electric to become my fulltime travel guitar.  The 3/4 size instrument is a little beast with surprisingly sturdy sound and I immediately found myself wanting to test it out live.

On Thursday, Febraury 3rd, I took it for a spin at Goodbye Blue Monday in the Bushwick part of Brooklyn — using it to play a cadre of World Blanket tunes past, present and future — and I had an amazing time.  Thus “Baby Blanket” was born.

Baby Blanket shows will continue during these times when the band is not playing (and possibly beyond).  They promise to follow two rules: 1) always the baby instrument, and 2) a focus on World Blanket material.

I’ve already announced Baby Blanket shows #2 & #3…
