|Singer-Songwriter Marian Call|
Marian Call, a geeky singer-songwriter from Alaska who performs heartfelt and humorous acoustic folk funk with a twist of jazz, has performed in comic stores around the country, and now she will be performing at the JHU Underground at our Manhattan Location as part of her national tour! There's been a ton of buzz for her, and we are delighted to be hosting Marian Call and Special Guest Rachel Zystra Wednesday, June 29 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
The show is FREE (there is a suggested artist donation of $5-$10, which we think will be more than worth it) and perfectly appropriate for all ages!
Stay tuned to the JHU Blog and Twitter for more details as they become available.

Official PR follows the jump!
Anchorage-based singer-songwriter Marian Call does things a little differently. Throughout 2010 she took to the road in her Subaru and played a tour crowdsourced on Twitter, with concerts in all fifty United States -- and most of populated Canada. Her music is “funky acoustic joy jazz” that tastes like cinnamon chipotle vanilla. She has some of the only officially licensed Firefly/Serenity and Battlestar Galactica songs in the 'Verse. She plays typewriter and kazoo and usually travels with Tribbles.
Marian, featuring Rachel Zystra will play at the Jim Hanley's Universe Underground on Wednesday, June 29th at 7pm - for free! If you enjoy the show, an artist donation or CD purchase is invited to keep her rolling. To listen to the music for free or learn more, see http://mariancall.com or meet her in person at http://twitter.com/mariancall.
Marian's last appearance in New York City was at http://w00tstock.net, hosted by Paul and Storm, the Mythbusters, and Jonathan Coulton. Marian has a web-based international following and the enthusiastic endorsement of @wilw (Wil Wheaton), @feliciaday, @petersagal, @donttrythis (Adam Savage of the Mythbusters), and many more. Call’s shows are unlike any other, and she is most often compared to other artists noted for their distinctiveness or non-traditional approach rather than those with a similar sound — artists such as Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Erin McKeown, and Amanda Palmer are often referenced. Marian Call has released two studio albums and more than a dozen singles. She is currently in Anchorage, Alaska working on her next studio album Something Fierce, and she plans to tour across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the U.K. in 2011.
