Description: Touted by the New York Times as "one of the finest songwriters from Texas," Slaid Cleaves returns to the Rubin Museum after sold-out concerts in both 2009 and 2011. He phrases like a grifter trying to croon his low-down past away, and writes like he knows he never will.
Venue Description: The Rubin Museum of Art holds one of the world's most important collections of Himalayan art and is the only museum in NYC dedicated to works from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Tibet, western China, Myanmar, and Mongolia. The museum runs an active set of programs for the general public that help illuminate themes inherent in its exhibitions, including the Naked Soul live concert series.
