The 506 Sessions concert series offers the most exclusive audience we've ever had - only 30 people! Setup for these shows include cocktail style seating (and plenty of distance). Come experience the historic Thrasher in a whole new way...
BRETT NEWSKI channels the sounds of the 90s.
He is known for playing bizarre venues such as a rubber factory in Norway, toolshed in Austria, Chinese bakery in Hong Kong and World War II bunker in Germany. Newski and drummer Spatola are cited as the first documented band to be kicked out of wal-mart for playing an unlicensed show.
Newski’s latest single "What Are You Smoking?” dives into the distorted American Dream and how there are multiple realities to choose from. We get to pick which we participate in. The video features Newski disrupting the public inside a human hamster ball and was directed by Max Hauser and filmed by Dexter Dexter.
On the touring circuit, Brett Newski has played alongside Pixies, Violent Femmes, Courtney Barnett, Manchester Orchestra, Better than Ezra, Ezra Furman & New Pornographers. He has a new podcast called "Dirt from the Road” where artists tell their most bizarre road stories. Recent guests include Frank Turner, Heartless Bastards and von Bondies.
To keep y'all as safe as possible, things might look a little different when you get here for this show. We appreciate your cooperation in wearing masks while you're here (singing/cheering encouraged...but WAAAYYY safer with a mask on!) We've also spaced out the chairs, added cocktail tables, put hand sanitizer EVERYWHERE and a few other things. Check out all of our Wellness Initiatives here. Thank you for understanding and for your continued support of the Thrasher Opera House!
