Hi folks,

Today marks the release of Pickles' new album Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe and the start of Thile's solo tour but we have plenty of other business to attend to so let's get started:

Noam's new record is now available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, etc and on CD and vinyl in the Punch Brothers Bazaar. If you take a shine to it as we think you will, but really want to picture Noam's infamous wild and emotive movements while playing, you're in luck. He'll be performing plenty of the material during his upcoming tour with Bryan Sutton, Barry Bales, Luke Bulla, and Jesse Cobb later this month, following the NY Banjo Summit run which starts tomorrow night. You can check the tour page for all the dates as is the tradition, but those east of the Mississippi have a reasonably decent shot of seeing him. Here's a video of him playing "Wheel Hoss" from the new album with Sutton, Bales, Bulla & Cobb from his recent show at FreshGrass to get an idea of what to expect. 

Thile has a pretty jam-packed touring slate as well with his transatlantic solo tour kicking off tonight in Seattle, but we're excited to announce some more. He'll be teaming up with the ever-fantastic Mike Marshall for three mandolin-filled nights in the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Eugene, and Bellevue to be specific) in early 2014, details on the tour page.  To gear up for the solo tour and get into the Bachtoberfest spirit, here's a video from Thile's recent appearance on A Prairie Home Companion and keep an eye out at the merch table for the recently-released vinyl version of his Bach recording.

If you don't have plans yet for this Saturday and live in either the greater-NYC or Madison, CT areas (and who doesn't really), we have some recommendations. Critter will join up with Michael Daves in NYC at Rockwood to play songs exclusively by the Stanley Brothers (tickets) and in Madison, Paul will be performing and holding a workshop with Brittany Haas and Jordan Tice at Fire in the Kitchen

Closing things out on the Punch Brothers front, the New Year's Eve show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC is now sold out! Tickets for the first two nights are going quickly as well (and there may be a few 3-day passes still kicking around at the time of writing this) so we wouldn't suggest waiting too long to grab yours.
