It’s How You Do It

A multi-instrumentalist in many projects over the years, his current solo project was born out of the global shutdown of 2020. Since the creative isolation of the pandemic, he has produced a trio of concept EPs and is currently busy working on a fourth. Supporting MO&E is fellow Tom Waits sing-a-like, local odd boy Josh Windmiller of The Crux, and more. 8:15pm, Saturday, Sept. 9. The Lost Church Santa Rosa, Ross Street between Mendocino Avenue and B Street. $12 general admission.
