Come to Marvin Country! Marvin Etzioni Plays The Art Garage, Friday, Nov. 9

There's country, there's alt. country and there's Marvin Country! Marvin Country is a magical place, somewhere off the map, populated by back-porch philosophers, hobos, broken hearted lovers and spacemen, and presided over by the man the L.A. Times called "one heck of a songwriter" and Billboard compared to Bob Dylan and John Lennon—Marvin Etzioni, also known as the mandolin man—who will be appearing at The Art Garage on Friday,  November 9 at 7:30 p.m.

Marvin Country! is the ambitious fourth solo album by a man already revered in Americana circles, as the co-founder of the pioneering L.A roots rock band Lone Justice, writing some of its finest songs. The 19 songs on his latest CD are variously original, traditional, tender, quirky, emotional and wise. There's backporch country, barroom weepers, clapboard-church gospel, haunting folk, dusty blues and songs for which a genre's not yet been named.

Since playing in Lone Justice, Etzioni has released three other solo albums, and produced numerous artists including Toad the Wet Sprocket and Peter Case. Marvin Country! was awarded Album of the Week by BBC.
