Description

We were so happy to host a show by Cassandra and Ben at our sister space HiLo a few years ago... since then the two of them have released some incredible albums, blown up in popularity, and are going to take over the world. Don't miss your chance to see these two in a small room! DJ set by Max Mellman to follow.

PLEASE NOTE: Social distancing is not possible in the Avalon show room. Thus, as per NY state guidelines, our shows are currently only open to individuals who have received the covid vaccine. Please be aware of this before purchasing tickets, and be prepared to show proof of vaccination at the entrance to the performance space.

Native New Yorker Cassandra Jenkins writes with a singular voice and an impressionistic intimacy, making astute observations that dovetail neatly with her blend of folk and lush ambient pop. A veteran musician, Jenkins played in the touring bands of Eleanor Friedberger, Craig Finn, Lola Kirke and Purple Mountains after coming up through the East Coast folk scene playing in her family’s band.”

Signing with Ba Da Bing Records, Jenkins made her label debut in 2021 with the critically acclaimed An Overview on Phenomenal Nature, an enchanting, almost spiritual set recorded with Josh Kaufman (Bonny Light Horseman, Muzz). “Filled with people, stories, and dialogue, the New York songwriter’s second album flows like an emotional breakthrough, tying together disparate observations into a serene and unified vision,” says Pitchfork, who gave the record Best New Music.

Ben Seretan is a musician and writer from Troy, New York who is working hard. In 2018, he released a 24 hour long album of guitar clouds called My Life's Work. In 2020 came Youth Pastoral, a lightly dance music influenced collection of cathartic full band jammers about breaking up with God (named one of the best albums of the year by Pitchfork). This year  - emerging from the Internet as if a 17-year burrow in the woods - Seretan whipped up Cicada Waves, a set of piano recordings from the riotous and cacophonous woods of north Georgia where, more often than not, the piano isn't played. And every Thursday he sends a new track and a 1,000 word piece of writing via My Big Break, a hard-to-describe email newsletter.
