John Wesley Harding has talented friends

Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, and prepare to be amazed when John Wesley Harding’s Cabinet of Wonders returns to City Winery for one more night of heart-pounding entertainment. Harding, a British novelist and singer-songwriter, has your “my-friends-with-vastly-different-tastes-hate-everything-I’ve-suggested-for-Friday-night” problem solved with this all-star lineup of comedians, authors, and musicians. The musical curiosities in his cabinet include alt-country singer Allison Moorer, former lead singer of Shudder to Think Craig Wedren, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses), Soul Coughing’s frontman Mike Doughty, and a special performance by JWH & The English UK. On comedy duty is the always-excellent Eugene Mirman. Authors Mary Gaitskill (Veronica) and Rick Moody (Four Fingers of Death) provide the literary thrills. Really, what more could you ask for?
