In February of 2011, This&That Café Vol.1 welcomed about 30 people to sit at candle-lit tables in an atmosphere that resembled, well, a café. Fast forward seven years and 40 shows later, and these days #TnTCafe sees crowds of 200+ in a space that has been described as an “indoor festival.” But despite the change in scale, our 40th show will largely resemble all those that came before it in the eclectic and excellent mix of artistry that has come to define the event.
For Vol. 40, we have assembled a cast that again spans multiple genres, from the dreamy trip-hop stylings of UKICO to the R&B-infused sounds of the chart-topping CIRRRCLE. Folk-Blues band Kev Gray & The Gravy Train will even be celebrating their 10th Anniversary with us. So bring your good vibes and an open mind to help us welcome the winter as we celebrate the 40th installment of this very special gathering.
