Randy Newman still applies both forces to his work and, as such, is still a force to be reckoned with." LA Weekly says tonight's show "is not a thing to be missed."

The concerts explore—in chronological order—songs from his catalog of ten albums. Moses Berkson directs the series; each show will feature one of Banhart’s frequent musical collaborators—including Noah Georgeson, Josiah Steinbrick, Gregory Rogove and Todd Dahlhoff—on a selection of songs.
