On Sunday April 15th, Small Brewpub is excited to host a listening concert with Dana Falconberry, an amazing avant-folk artist from Austin, TX with intricately layered and multi-textured songs that have garnered praise from The New York Times, NPR, and SPIN and brought her appearances at Austin City Limits Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and opening gigs for Califone, Daniel Johnston, and Heartless Bastards.
An adept lyricist, Falconberry has always captured the stunning imagery of her surrounding physical geography, performing the aural equivalent of the disparate and wondrous landscapes of these United States.

More about Dana Falconberry:
“I couldn’t breathe below the deep sea, but it does breathe underneath me,” sings Dana Falconberry on the song “Cormorant." The cormorant is unique among bird species for its ability to dive up to 45 meters underwater, where it explores the alien terrain hidden beneath the ocean’s surface. On their new album, From the Forest Came the Fire, Dana Falconberry & Medicine Bow invite the listener to look upon the world through new eyes, to ponder the intuition that drives a cormorant to dive deeper and deeper. From the Forest Came the Fire guides us past the forest's edge, beneath the surface of the water, and up the base of the mountain, leaving listeners awestruck at the meeting of natural landscapes and the supernatural forces that lay within them.
Where before Falconberry evoked the beauty of the natural world, she seeks now to understand its mystery, delving into the anthropological magic of places, nostalgically channeling the voices of past lives. Inspired by her late grandmother Isabelle, the album unfolds like a surreal dream quest. Falconberry chases ghosts through a thicket of trees, over rocky ridges, across the vast expanse of a thirsty desert, mapping out an intangible terrain like a spiritual cartographer. Written in a series of solitary retreats into remote areas of the Ozarks, Lincoln National Forest, the Buffalo River, and White Sands, New Mexico, these songs chronicle an introspective, metaphysical journey set to a backdrop of the American continent.
