Event Details

Saturday, February 9 • Nicholas Naioti. CD release party for alt-pop poet-musician. 8 p.m. Cafe Paradiso, 101 N. Main St., Fairfield. (641) 472-0856.

For three years, Fairfield’s Nicholas Naioti has been working on a new album, called “I’m On Your Side.” The album is being released February 9th via an album release party at Cafe Paradiso. “I’m On Your Side” lyrically seeks to confront the topics of social division, identity politics, radical forgiveness, self-acceptance, unrequited love, and existential awareness. Musically, the album interweaves electronic and organic sounds. Orchestral string and woodwind arrangements intertwine with oscillating harmonic synths and warm, kaleidoscopic samples gathered over years of touring. It’s an honest embrace of the beauty and darkness of relationships and all the curious facets thereof – passion, obsession, desire, heartbreak, and loneliness. It braids together the poetic, the literal, and the metaphor.

Accompanying Nicholas on the February 9th bill are Spectral Snake from Iowa City and Rae Fitzgerald from Columbia Missouri. Spectral Snake are a duo that play traditional style country and folk songs with poetic and evocative lyrics. Rae Fitzgerald plays honest, artful folk music that captures the human spirit.

Tickets are $10 in advance (cafeparadiso.net or at Paradiso), $12 at the show.
