Lucky, lucky me. . .got to see this show in Minneapolis tonight. For two hours, I was at the center of the universe, with dozens of others who walked in as strangers and left as fellow travelers. ~ AR, Minneapolis

Event Details

Friends are forged on the dark road headed out of town.

And so we head there again, sojourning across the continent in the name of psychic sanity and spiritual resolve in these most troubled and troubling of times.

These are nights in which love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone.

The Seattle show was so fantastic! ~ DG, Seattle

Nights of Grief & Mystery testifies to a storyteller’s, a singer’s, and a kick-ass band’s willingness to wonder how our corner of the world has come to be as it is, and how we might best serve its needs. One side effect? This bravura performance magically elicits a similar willingness in ourselves, perhaps unexpectedly so, making us somehow prone to one of Stephen Jenkinson’s road-tested observations: “Grief is a w
