Damon & Naomi and Meg Baird 

with DJ Denim Dill

Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang began playing music together as the rhythm section, co-songwriters, and sometime singers in Galaxie 500. The band’s three influential albums were genre-defying landmarks of atmospheric post-punk, inspiring many who followed in their wake. Since the demise of Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi have worked as a duo, exploring folk music, psychedelia, and collaborations with like-minded musicians. After a series of recordings for Sub Pop, they established their own label 20/20/20. Their latest, A Sky Record, was released in August 2021.

Since co-founding Philadelphia’s luminary psychedelic folk collective Espers, Meg Baird has been steadily creating a body of solo and collaborative work within folk, acoustic, electrified and underground music traditions. She has recorded with harpist Mary Lattimore, helped form Heron Oblivion as a drummer and vocalist, and has continued to create her own solo work featuring her beguiling guitar and songwriting. Her latest album, Furling, was released on Drag City Records in January 2023.

Dillon of Allston Pudding spins from doors to show time.
