Hi folks,

For those of you who have finely attuned pop culture antennae and/or are Punch Brothers completists, the forthcoming Judd Apatow-directed comedy This Is 40 has a soundtrack album that was released today. And guess what: Punch Brothers are all over it. The film's score as well as the soundtrack was produced by Antifogmatic producer and old friend Jon Brion. PB can be found on six tracks: Fiona Apple's "Dull Tool," Norah Jones's "Always Judging," Lindsey Buckingham's "Brother & Sister," Graham Parker's "What Do You Like?," Wilco's "I Got You (At the End of the Century)," and last but not least Jon Brion's "Theme 1 (Debbie & Oliver)."  Punch Brothers are also featured in other sections of the score, which you can hear by taking a stroll to the ol' Cineplex Stadium 14 when the movie comes out on December 21st.

On the live front, our fall tour is nearing its end! We're in Kansas City tonight, Minneapolis tomorrow, and then finish things off in Chicago at the Vic on Thursday (and very few tickets remain for this one). While our three-night New Year's run at The Bowery Ballroom is now sold out (thanks everyone!), don't forget we have a series of dates with Anaïs Mitchell coming up in January and February.

Those of you who would prefer to hibernate through the colder months can come join us in Charleston, SC for our return to the Spoleto Festival on May 27th. Tickets are available here.

We'd be remiss if we didn't give Thile and Noam some love for their Grammy nominations! Thile, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Stuart Duncan's collaborative effort, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, received a nomination in the Best Folk Album category. Here's a taste of that album if you missed it earlier in the year.

Noam's second solo album, Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail, which was produced by Gabe and features many members of the extended PB family, is nominated for Best Bluegrass Album. If you haven't given it a listen, you can pick up a copy in the Punch Brothers Bazaar (and don't forget about our Holiday Sale discounts while you're there).

Speaking of Pickles, he has Noam & Friends shows in Albany and NYC coming up next month before he hits the road again on the Banjo Summit. Visit NoamPikelny.com for more details.

Best,
