Steve Wynn will playing an intimate and rare seated show. The show will showcase his trailblazing music from over the years as well as a couple of chapters from his new book 'I WOULDN’T SAY IT IF IT WASN’T TRUE'

"One of rock's true heroes of the underground." - Philadelphia Weekly

"A force to be reckoned with and cherished." - London Sunday Times

"No contemporaries make classic rock records like Wynn" -

"A first-class songwriter in the simple-yet-profound tradition of Lou Reed, Neil Young and post-Beatles John Lennon, [with] an ear for balancing his pop sensibility with artful dissonance." -

In 25 years, Wynn has released at least that many albums and has seen over 300 of his songs recorded. He has played over 2000 shows in more than 25 countries. His songs have been recorded and/or performed by REM, Luna, Concrete Blonde, The Black Crowes, Yo La Tengo and Eleventh Dream Day, among others; his "That's Why I Wear Black" became the #1 single of 1993 in Norway as the leadoff track from the debut album by Somebody's Darling. He has been prominently featured in Rolling Stone, Mojo, Uncut, Entertainment Weekly, People, The Los Angeles Times, New York Times and countless other publications all over the world.

Or maybe you know Wynn from his groundbreaking work with The Dream Syndicate, a band that--along with REM and the Replacements--practically invented the American indie rock scene of the 1980s. Perhaps you know Wynn from his critically acclaimed solo albums of the 1990s which were fixtures on many Modern Rock radio stations across the country. Or it could be from his highly touted side-project Gutterball which by its fifth gig found itself signed to Mute/Elektra and on a national tour with The Black Crowes. Or maybe from his recent "Desert Trilogy" and the near-legendary shows with his current backing band The Miracle 3. Or maybe you tuned in for the first time when he played on the Late Show With David Letterman as part of The Baseball Project earlier this year.

"What he took from punk had more to do with attitude, noisy energy, abyss-skirting emotions and musical riskiness--qualities, of course, present in the best rock and roll of any scene, era or sub-genre" - Trouser Press Music Guide

Advance praise for his new book:

Steve Wynn has been toiling in the rock’n’roll trenches for over forty years. I know. I’ve been working alongside of him for many of those years. Steve’s book really captures the life of a music lifer, the first bands, the good breaks, the bad decisions, the sense that the life you live is music, not your job. The Dream Syndicate is one of the greatest bands of all time, and Steve takes you along for the ride. PETER BUCK

Steve Wynn might say he is an ordinary guy, but his new memoir proves that he is more tenacious, musically erudite, driven, and prolific than any of the rest of us. With his crystalline memory, he recounts scenes from his bell-bottomed youth in 1970s Los Angeles to the whiskey-splashed punk rock dives where he, along with the members of his band The Dream Syndicate, developed an electrifying brand of psychedelic/punk/rock/jazz that continues to thrill fans today. I was there for some of this stuff and can’t remember half of it . . .VICKI PETERSON
