The Warhol is thrilled to welcome back the inimitable songwriter, Bill Callahan, this time to the beautiful and charming Carnegie Lecture Hall, after appearances in 2009 in The Warhol Theater and an unforgettable summer evening in 2011 under the stars at the Carnegie Museum of Art’s Sculpture Court.
A Drag City Records stalwart, Callahan, who performed for many years under the alias Smog, continues his lyrical songwriting featuring a signature baritone and vivid imagery, which has appealed to a diverse roster of artists who have recorded his songs, such as Gil Scott-Heron, The Flaming Lips, and Cat Power.
Atlanta-based outsider visual artist and musician, Lonnie Holley, opens the show.
