This show has been moved from our sister venue, Schubas. All original ticket purchasers will be honored.

Wesley Stace was born in Hastings, Sussex, in 1965, and educated at the King’s School, Canterbury, and Jesus College, Cambridge. Under the name John Wesley Harding, he has released 15 albums, ranging from traditional folk to full-on pop music. His most recent pop release, Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead (2009), recorded with the Minus Five, was a critical smash, garnering considerable airplay: the album is “terrifically catchy” (New Yorker), while Harding is “hyper-aware, expertly tweaking the lyricist’s game at every turn” (Los Angeles Times), with “lyrics that dazzle” (Wall Street Journal). “Typically wry and acerbic” (Billboard), the songs “reveal a greater maturity and lyrical polish…” making it “the most pleasing album Harding has made since his first studio effort, Here Comes the Groom” (All Music Guide). He will make his next album in Portland OR in November 2010.

John Wesley Harding has been joined onstage by Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, John Prine, Bruce Springsteen (with whom he recorded a duet on his album Awake), Joan Baez, Peter Buck, Evan Dando, David Baddiel, Rick Moody, Tanya Donelly, Josh Ritter, Rosanne Cash, Colin Meloy, Scott MacCaughey and Robyn Hitchcock among others. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. His songs have been featured in films (including High Fidelity) and covered by other artists. His most recent releases have been two volumes of John Wesley Harding Sings To A Small Guitar, a collection of otherwise unknown and unreleased songs from throughout his career, in their original state as acoustic guitar and vocal demos.
