Julia Crafton and Band at the Bitter End

May 24, 2024, 09:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT

Hi All!
I’m officially back from New Orleans and there are some really exciting announcements coming! 

But first… On May 24th at 8p.m. I will be returning to The Bitter End on Bleeker St. for the first time since June 2023. Having been in New Orleans since September, I have spent the year playing piano, singing, and learning at the instruments and in the living rooms from some of New Orleans greatest. From going to church to hear Irma Thomas sing, hearing my piano teacher BC Coogan every Monday night play Allen Toussaint songs, to living with Dayna Kurtz and following her to Lulu and the Broadsides gigs with Robert Maché, James Singleton, and Glenn Hartman; I have learned so so much and I cannot wait to bring it all back to New York City on May 24th! 

The lineup is Mitch Stein on guitar, Morgan Parker on drums, and Paul Frazier on bass… it will be a fire night of music. So, please come spend your Friday night hearing some music that this 18 year old wrote while floating around New Orleans bars, churches, and theaters for a year at “hang-out-icus high”, as my Dad calls it. 

I cannot wait to share and perform again. Doors open at 7:30 and show starts at 8!

The Bitter End, 147 Bleeker St. 



Oh… and I’ll be at NYU Tisch this fall for Dramatic Writing! So, if this goes well… a Bitter End residency? :)

See you there!

Much love,
