Yes, you heard right. Noa Noa is back. Well, for one show at least. My partner in crime Erica Ciccarone organized a show for her old New York City friend Mishka Shubaly. Mishka has been blowing up lately. Kindle Singles bestsellers. Touring with comedian Doug Stanhope. Releasing his new album Coward’s Path.

If you aren’t familiar with Mishka, watch this video for a quick primer:

Also performing is Seattle-based songwriter Star Anna, who has a killer voice and a great songwriting talent. Here she is performing with Mark Pickerel from the Screaming Trees:

The show also features Joseph Allred, for my money one of the most talented musicians in Tennessee. Here he is performing at Noa Noa in 2013.

Don’t miss this! This is probably your only chance to see a Noa Noa show in 2015. More info on the Facebook event page.

@ Noa Noa (house), 620 Hamilton Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203

Chris Davis organized an incredible lineup here at Theatre Intangible h.q. aka Noa Noa for Saturday, November 9th.

  • Nathan Bowles & Scott Verrastro
  • Joseph Allred
  • Noa (with Chris Davis)

Blacksburg, Virginia’s Nathan Bowles and Philadelphia’s Scott Verrastro lead very busy lives with their bands and solo projects. Bowles is a member of Pigeons, Pelt and Black Twig Pickers among others. Verrastro performs in Kohoutek, Kuschty Rye ErgoInsect Factory (leader Jeff Barsky played Noa Noa earlier this year) and many more projects.

For this tour, they’re combining forces as an experimental improv percussion duo. If the songs from their new album Polar Satellites are any measure, the show at Noa Noa is a can’t-miss evening of music.


The wonderful Joseph Allred plays fingerstyle instrumental music on an acoustic guitar.


Noa is an improvising musician and multi-instrumentalist, performing on woodwinds, various percussion instruments, hurdy gurdy and other instruments. She will improvise with Chris Davis (The Cherry Blossoms).

More info on the Facebook event page. I hope to see you at the show!
