The End of America Live from Caffe Lena
September 10 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDTFree
TEOA (The End of America) is a band of friends who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. James Downes, Trevor Leonard and Brendon Thomas joined forces in 2010 to record their debut LP, Steep Bay (2010). TEOA released Shakey (2012) and the eponymous self-titled LP, The End of America, in 2016. TEOA has been recognized for “live performances that highlight their songwriting, harmonies and stage banter,” according to Stitched in Sound.
Caffè Lena offers extraordinary music in an intimate venue steeped in history. It has been in continuous operation longer than any other folk club in the USA. First opened in 1960 in Saratoga Springs NY, the Caffè’s early years were entwined with the social movements of that era. Emerging artists such as Bob Dylan, The Freedom Singers, Arlo Guthrie, Emmylou Harris and Don McLean took their turn on the stage, alongside esteemed veterans such as Clarence Ashley, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James and Pete Seeger. The venue has been called “An American Treasure” by the Library of Congress, and has received recognition from the GRAMMY Foundation for its contribution to American music.
