If history has taught me anything it’s that when times get hard, people turn to banjo players for guidance. In the face of the current financial crisis, I will be offering the tonic of the five-string banjo to the citizens of Alphabet City, USA.Curtis EllerThursday, Sept. 18 @ 8:00pm

It’s the least I can do in these dark days. I hope to see you downtown.
-- Curtis Eller's American Circuswww.myspace.com/curtisellerwww.curtiseller.comCritical Praise for “Wirewalkers & Assassins"“A left-field classic that is already one of my albums of the year” - fROOTS MAGAZINE (London)If you think the line "I'm gonna get fucked up like Ulysses S. Grant" is genius, this album is for you. -SEPIACHORD (Seattle)“It’s a gasoline and pistol sort of justice that has the spirit of that old sound, but with a modern perspective infused throughout” - FOLK IT UP (Chicago)“like finding a tube radio from some alternate reality that only plays songs about dusty roads, boxing, and circus catastrophes. And what a brilliant tune it is!” -LIAR SOCIETY (Binghamton, NY)“Traversing roughly the same carny-goth-Americana terrain as Beat Circus, Humanwine and even the Dresden Dolls. In other words: it’s good” - BOSTON PHOENIX (Boston)
