Doors 7pm

Athens, GA, resident Mathew Houck is the sole member of Phosphorescent.

Houck's career began in 2000 when he released the Hipolit album under

the name Fillup Shack. A tour of England and Spain followed, and while

the European press drew comparisons to Bob Dylan and Will Oldham, the

London Evening Standard declared him "the most significant American in

his field since Kurt Cobain." Houck's first release as Phosphorescent,

entitled A Hundred Times or More, appeared in 2003 on the Warm label.

The 2004 EP The Weight of Flight was his last release for the label, as

the 2005 full-length Aw Come Aw Wry landed on Misra. Two years later the

release of Pride began a relationship with the Dead Oceans imprint. To

Willie, Phosphorescent's tribute to Willie Nelson, arrived in early

2009, followed by the all new Here's to Taking it Easy in 2010. ~ David
