Tim Foljahn plays with his band

Two Dollar Tim Foljahn plays his F*cking Love Songs at Joe's Pub Thursday night at 7pm.

Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. 
First he had a triple bypass, now he's gonna break your heart.

Tim Foljahn is a Michigan-born, New York-based singer-songwriter/guitarist who has more than likely played on one of your favorite records. Some highlights from the tip of his iceberg-sized resume: He was the guitarist on the first two Cat Power records. He toured with and worked on the final Townes Van Zandt recordings.  He lent his guitar skills to Half Japanese as well as the Boredoms. He played on the fantastic Thurston Moore solo record Psychic Hearts. All the while, Foljahn released a series of his own brooding and lovely song cycles and experimental recordings under the moniker Two Dollar Guitar. Songs For An Age Of Extinction is Foljahn's first "song-based" record since Two Dollar Guitar's The Wear and Tear of Fear from 2006 and his first release for Kiam Records.

The Signs of Yore

Fitch posted some pictures he took near the end of the last century of New York City antique signage just before they faded away to nothing. These Pictures will put you right back into The Automat or the Chock Full of Nuts and 57th & 8th. Gone are the days.
