Presenting After Hours, Sky Lines. An ethereal evening with Jana Hunter and Baltimore-based band Peals at Playwright Celtic Pub 732 Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. Doors open at 9.30pm. Jana Hunter will be playing work from across her solo spectrum of ambient murmurs and sound textures to dreamlike pop sighs, evoking a serene, summertime ode to the Times Square skyline and warm nights. Peals, a Baltimore-based band, will round out the evening's performance with their meditative and intimate sounds.

Jana Hunter is a writer, musician and leader of several bands, most recently Lower Dens. She was born in Pantego, Texas. Her music is characterized by meticulous attention to craft, stemming from her conviction that work can solve any problem, especially those inherent to being alive. Her first car was a Mercedes diesel wagon that ran on fast food fryer oil stolen under cover of darkness.

Peals are a new band led by William Cashion (Future Islands) and Bruce Willen (Double Dagger), members of two of Baltimore's most dynamic live bands. Formed in early 2012, the duo have turned inward for their debut 'Walking Field', crafting a meditative and exploratory headphone panorama of the highest order. From the first moment, they set aside the basses of their high-profile post-punk outfits for acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, tambourines, toy pianos, and other sonic tools in pursuit of a stripped-down, warm living-room atmosphere.

Peals & Romantic States

Peals and Romantic States perform in the Clocktower's main gallery, followed by interviews with Joe Ahearn. Peals is William Cashion (of Future Islands) and Bruce Willen (formerly of Double Dagger) from Baltimore, Maryland. Romantic States is Jim Triplett and Ilenia Madelaire, also from Baltimore. Peals members describe the band as "healing" and "healthy"; a good alternative to their other music projects. Alternatively, the electric music endeavors of Romantic States is a culmination of a "long drawn out" collaboration between its members.
