Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist's eye and a poet's heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriter's Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves' seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. "Slaid's a craftsman," says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on "Texas Love Song." "He goes about his songs like a woodworker."

The "sea" in this case is the Jersey Shore. And who better to be your escort for the evening than New Jersey icon Joe D'Urso whose last appearance at the Outpost was this past January with Willie Nile? Joe returns this October 17 this time with Willie as his guest. Also appearing are American alternative country singer (and the younger sister of Shelby Lynne) Allison Moorer who opened for her husband"s (Steve Earle's) September 2008 Outpost show and Joe Rapolla, another Jersey Shore fixture whose music has been described as "a unique blend of The Beatles, Eagles, and Bruce Springsteen…with some Nashville thrown in there."

What could be nicer on a cool November evening than to sit back in warm friendly surroundings and soak up Brother Sun's harmonies which as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.

Not to be outdone by their male counterparts, Abigail and Lily Chapin (Tom Chapin's daughters) plan to enchant you with their "soft harmonies and dark sidelong lyrics (which) fit perfectly into a new folk aesthetic that is more twisted than freaky." according to popmatters.com, and "their music blends the harmonies of traditional sister-acts with a modern lyrical sensibility." The title of their most recent album A Date With the Everly Brothers tells you where this duo is headed. And they plan on taking your heart with them.

Joseph Arthur returns to the Outpost after last year's highly regarded concert at which both his musical and artistic (painting) skills were on display. We expect no less of a fabulous show December 12th. "When I first heard Joe's music, his lyrics jumped out at me. I love his words, love his music. It's great to see some of his best written work assembled. His words rattle and rumble and pries open the cage." — Peter Gabriel, musician
