Doors Open: 7:30 pm


ONELINEDRAWING’s Jonah Matranga has helped create a few genres, but he’s never really fit into one. From the pioneering post-hardcore emo of Far and New End Original to the lofi bedroom indie adventures of onelinedrawing, Jonah has influenced countless singers and bands over the last 25 years, from Deftones to Dashboard to Frank Turner. He’s toured with artists ranging from Jimmy Eat World to Sepultura, and been featured on tracks by Thursday, Kimya Dawson, Deftones, Fort Minor, and Lupe Fiasco. He was doing sliding-scale merch, unique recordings, crowdfunding, and crowd-sourced patronage way before any of that was a thing. Onelinedrawing has been at the heart of all of it.

Jonah’s new album TENDERWILD marks the return of onelinedrawing, which is the first time since 2004’s “The Volunteers” (Jade Tree) that Jonah has used the moniker. This album brought together so many friends and fellow musicians that it only felt right to release it as onelinedrawing. Tenderwild is an uplifting journey that was created during a chaotic time of healing.

“It helped me through,” says Matranga. “I hope it helps you through, too.”

Contrasting between guitar-driven rock songs and heartfelt ballads, TENDERWILD features some of the best songs Jonah has ever written. The album also features guest appearances from many of Jonah’s friends from over the years, such as: Zach Lind (Jimmy Eat World), Jeremy Tappero (Soul Asylum), Norman Brannon (Texas Is The Reason), Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional), John Gutenberger (Far), and Jake Snider (Minus The Bear). TENDERWILD is an expansive and special album that has something for everyone.

“Man, does he ever rip his heart out and show it to you in his songs… A loose, free-roaming approach to confessional songwriting that pushes his music well beyond the normal sad singer/songwriter clichés.” – PITCHFORK

“One of music’s most charismatic, tuneful, purist geeks…” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“You may know singer-songwriter Jonah Matranga from his various group projects–Far, Gratitude, New End Original, and the anagrammatic onelinedrawing — but music made under his own name still sounds as sweet… Matranga may have done his best work while flying solo.”
