See you this Sunday! Sliding scale admission $5-$15 at 2803 Manor Rd. Austin, TX 78722

Zirque Bois d’Arc is the alter-ego of longtime Austin, TX sideman (and occasional frontman) Eric Roach. From the 90s bluegrassy stylings of The Fencesitters to current rock and progressive stalwarts Lick Lick and Baby Got Bacteria, Eric has been a contributing member of over 100 live acts since attending high school in Austin in the 1980s.

In November 2015 the first two Zirque Bois d’Arc records are being released as CDs and digitally. As a celebration of this, there will be a record release party on December 13 featuring unique live presentations of the material.

Things I Should've Done Better is a guitar led exploration of thriving in a dystopian universe. Written in a two day flurry on Venice Beach, and recorded over the next year, the CD features performances from Sam Arnold, David Hobizal, Pat Kennedy, Chuck Fisher, Matt Kelly and Peter Stopschinski as well as horn arrangements by Sam and string arrangements by Peter. Performing tracks from the record will be Peter, Sam, David and Zirque.

Songs About Russia is a collection of songs written by Zirque in the Spring of 2013. After the electric guitar odyssey of Things I Should've Done Better, Songs About Russia is a collection of simple songs, with simple acoustic arrangements, and performed with tight three-part harmonies. This album was recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Cisco Gilliland and features Shelly Leuzinger and Evie Gladish on harmony vocals. Shelly and Evie will be performing Songs About Russia with Zirque. More info at http://www.zirque.com

There will be feature presentations from a few special guests throughout - Guy Town (featuring Evie Gladish, Lisa Machac and Julia Ward), The Enchanted Travesty with Robin Chotzinoff and Shelly Leuzinger, and anchoring the evening will be Austin's Legendary Ralph White.

In between - Austin Piazzola Quintet has been hailed as "one of the foremost tango ensembles in the country" and "a veritable supergroup of Austin based talent" by critics. APQ has released three studio albums to critical acclaim, and has performed to sold out audiences around the country including recent performances at the Diary Center for the Arts in Boulder, CO and The Gig listening room in Santa Fe, NM. http://www.apqtango.com
