Pop-Up Gallery & Music Party

with music by Mercy Choir & The Sawtelles

Friday, April 1, 2016 at 8 p.m.

Mercy Choir is the songwriting and recording project of New Haven, CT based musician Paul Belbusti. Over the past decade, Paul has produced a large quantity of critically acclaimed music ranging from abstract experiments to more traditional pop and rock and roll.

Married duo the Sawtelles, are a balance of four elements, alternate-tuned guitar, various drum kit configurations, and two voices. Sparse but intricately arranged pop that is as lush as it is threadbare makes what is played as important as what isn’t. Their strict DIY philosophy aligns them more with the hand painted Sun Ra LP’s of 1950’s and 60’s then it does with those striving for mainstream commercial success.

Doors open at 7:30. Refreshments available. Artists may arrive at 6:30 to hang work.


Tickets available at the door. Seating is limited.


$5 per person
