Join me for live performances of new and old songs from my porch/living room. I'll be the guy with a cigar and a beard.
Mikey Mason (a nationally touring standup comedian by trade) made a splash on YouTube with the video for his song, “She Don't Like Firefly,” which spurred the recording of his crowd-funded geek rock/comedy albums, “Impotent Nerd Rage” and “Barbarian Jetpack,” his third geek album, “Dangerous Gifts,” and an EP of non-comedic songs inspired by Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods. His fourth album, “dodecahedron,” includes songs featured in the live-action Knights of the Dinner Table web series. His fifth album, "Red Letters," is angry nerd-rock goodness fueled by pain, isolation, angst, and loss. His sixth album, "Tentacow," had its title inspired by chat room discussions from ConcertWindow shows, and included some songs he debuted live, online, here. His seventh album, "Detour," was a departure from his norm and featured a mostly bare-bones approach to non-comedic music. He also has an EP of punk rock songs allegedly written and performed by kittens. You can find all these at https://mikeymason.bandcamp.com/ Mikey's work has been featured on DrDemento.com, Nerdist.com, MTV Geek News, SyFy's Blastr.com, and in Time Magazine's Techland, and he is a member of The Funny Music Project (theFuMP.com). He has made multiple appearances both on NBC and at the legendary House Of Blues, headlined on all four coasts and performed at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Gen Con, Dragon Con, Geek Media Expo, the Browncoat Ball, and RPG conventions across the US. He is also a proud media sponsor of Can't Stop The Serenity, a fundraiser for Equality Now, and performs at at least one CSTS each year. Learn more at mikeymason.com.
For 60 years, Club Passim in Harvard Square has been known as a premier listening room presenting new and established performers of genres ranging from folk and acoustic to jazz, and everything in between. The historic non-profit music venue presents over 400 shows per year to an audience of over 30,000.
The Minstrel is a concert series run by the Folk Project, a non-profit folk music and arts organization. We use the facilities of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ. We hold shows every Friday, year round, and the second Friday of the month is an open stage/audition night. The music we present is "folk" music in its broadest sense. That is, in addition to traditional American and ethnic "folk" music (in its purist definition), we welcome music of contemporary, primarily acoustic songwriters, and other types of music more folkie in attitude than in content. Shows start at 7:30 PM; dress is casual. We serve coffee, teas, and baked goods. There is no alcohol or tobacco on the premises. Admission is inexpensive; on our regular Friday concerts we ask $10.00 on your way in, plus the rest of what you thought the show was really worth on your way out. This additional amount goes to supplement what we pay the feature performer. All tickets are sold at the door. No advance sales or reservations are necessary.
