Peasant’s Shady Retreat CD Release Party at World Café Live March 11

Peasant’s Shady Retreat CD Release Party at World Café Live March 11

On the Ground and the vinyl The End were both strong releases for Damien Nicholas DeRose, the Doylestown artist otherwise known as Peasant. His gentle, wispy tunes have conjured up plenty of comparisons to the late, great Elliott Smith. He’ll be celebrating the release of his latest album Shady Retreat on Paper Garden Records at World Café Live tonight before beginning his tour down south for SXSW. Seeing him off will be the beautiful Vibewrangler Records songbirds, Sisters 3. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut Ave., 8pm, $13, All Ages myspace.com/peasant (Photo by Heidi Greenwood) - Bill McThrill
