We’re headlining Mercury Lounge on Tuesday, July 23rd.

And very excited to once again be playing with our good friends Wild Leaves!

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 14th.  Buy them HERE.

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.

Big news announced earlier today…

Our 3rd LP — now entitled 2012 — has an official release date: Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012.

Additionally, we will be playing a record release show at Mercury Lounge in New York City on that same date — April 3rd — sharing the bill with Kitty, Daisy & Lewis.

Tickets for the record release show go on sale on Friday, January 13th at 12pm.

More details on the album coming soon…

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…

I’m going to be doing a rare solo acoustic show on October 27th at The Delancey in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City. Start time is 7pm sharp. $10 cover.

I’ll be playing songs from the forthcoming album, Create/Roadshow, as well as a few classic TWB tunes and a number of brand new songs never played live before anywhere.

I would love to see anyone and everyone there.
