Lynn Phares and Joel Elvery aka Mechanic Street House Concerts are welcoming another talented singer/songwriter into their home this weekend.

Hailing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Brett Newski has hauled his acoustic guitar all over the world, touring Southeast Asia, South Africa and Europe, often for months at a time. Described as “geek rock” or “folk punk,” his engagingly quirky sound recalls elements of They Might Be Giants, Weezer or the Violent Femmes, and he’s toured with the Femmes. Last year, he released his third album since launching his recording career in 2011, titled Life Upside Down.

When he performs in Lynn and Joel’s living room, he should be filling it with his bouncy energy and off-the-wall humor. Suggested donation is $20, which all goes to the performer. Doors open 7:30pm, music starts at 8.
