Thursday 31st August - Castle Hotel, Manchester
Wednesday 6th September - The Slaughtered Lamb, London



Mishka - After receiving an expensive MFA in Fiction from Columbia University, Mishka Shubaly promptly realized he was more interested in playing music in dive bars than writing. He lived out of a Toyota minivan for a year, touring nonstop, and has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Decemberists among others. “Bad Dreams,” a narrative published in NYPress about his romance with an opiate marked his return to writing.
His Kindle Singles for Amazon have all been bestsellers. He writes true stories about drink, drugs, disasters, desire, deception and their aftermath. His work has been praised for its grit, humor, fearlessness and heart. ‘The Long Run,’ his mini-memoir detailing his transformation from alcoholic drug abuser to sober ultrarunner is one of the best-selling Kindle Singles to date.
Mishka Shubaly lives in Brooklyn where he writes music and plays bass for Freshkills. He is at work on a new solo record of his original songs and a full-length memoir. He does not own a dog but he thinks about them often.


Birdcloud - Banned from YouTube, booed at America's Got Talent, and lauded for their irreverence by a global cult following, Birdcloud's music has been referred to as the ravenous id of today’s commercial country sound. Nashville natives Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green have spent years touring dive bars and lavish theaters across America. Birdcloud is currently celebrating the release of "Singles Only," their greatest hits on double cum-colored vinyl.
