In ten years of operation, Tiny Telephone has become one of the crown jewels of Bay Area music, and its founder John Vanderslice one of our indie rock heroes. Countless groups have recorded at the studio, and it’s served as a destination for some of the biggest bands while remaining affordable and accessible for the local community. Beyond all of that, it’s an amazing space full of great gear, and we were pleased to spend a day there in September recording for The Bay Bridged, Volume 2.

In celebration of the studio’s ten years, Vanderslice will perform at the Great American Music Hall on January 30th, joined by a thirty-person ensemble of Tiny Telephone house orchestra The Magik*Magik Orchestra. They’ll be playing a variety of songs from Vanderslice’s deep catalog and also showcase some new tunes from his upcoming album currently being recorded at the studio. If you’re looking for hints of what the new album will sound like, check out this excellent live set recorded recently by NYCTaper.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the orchestra, and tickets go on sale this Sunday. The show starts at 9pm and is $14. Aesop Rock will DJ before and after the performance.
