We’re delighted to welcome New Mexican back to Black Shirt for a free acoustic show in our brewhouse.
New Mexican is the solo project of American folk rock musician Matt Hoffman. The moniker derives from Hoffman’s birthplace (Las Cruces, NM) and stomping ground of his youth—an expansive one for a kid—filled with deserts, mountains, artist-musician grandparents, family-owned mom-and-pop music shops, musical (adobe) households, and a childhood sense of adventure and exploration in a physical world way bigger than we are. While the songs on Take it on Our Shoulders were conceived using an acoustic guitar, a voice and a pen and paper, the arrangements range from acoustic-based to noisy, fuzzed-guitar-driven textures, the latter likely a byproduct of Hoffman’s time collaborating with Strange Americans cohort Trent Nelson.
New Mexican has shared the stage with Jeffrey Foucault, Sean Rowe and Marco Benevento. Since this solo show will be in our brewhouse, seats are limited – an early arrival is recommended.
