Paleface Set to Perform Thursday in Barnesville

Monica ‘Mo’ Samalot and Paleface

Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Paleface on Thursday at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville.

Prolific, influential, cult-hero and indie-folk icon Paleface is a high-energy and charismatic artist. His performances are as a duo featuring his girlfriend Monica “Mo” Samalot on drum-kit and charming, candied vocal harmonies.

The duo celebrated the release of their latest album, “One Big Party” (Ramseur Records), with a special guest performances alongside The Avett Brothers at Radio City Music Hall, followed by U.S. and European tours … including special performances on NPR’s Mountain Stage and Daytrotter (voted top 20 of the year).

Paleface was schooled musically by friend Daniel Johnston (The Devil And Daniel Johnston) and soon discovered at an New York City open mic by Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5).

He’s released more than a dozen records including two major label releases and has been called a major influence and inspiration by a wide range of artists including Grammy award recipient Beck and The Avett Brothers. He’s also collaborated and appeared on three albums by The Avett Brothers. Additionally, Paleface is visual artist who’s been selling hundreds of his original music inspired paintings at concerts, art shows, festivals and via his website.

Doors will open at 7:30 p.m., and show will begin at 8 p.m.
