Michael Hurley, Dragging an Ox Through Water, Hyena, Paper Upper Cuts 

When: Fri., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $7
The recent Smithsonian Folkways reissue of Michael Hurley's debut recordings, appropriately dubbed First Songs and first released in 1964, has come at a crossroads of sorts for the folk-roots guru. With a new generation of stripped-down folksters idolizing Hurley's matter-of-fact dissertations on werewolves or his desire not to live in the twilight zone, his legendary lo-fi approach is more popular than ever. Hurley, however, remains somewhat of an underground enigma despite releasing more than 20 albums over six decades, and influencing newer buzzworthy artists like Jessica Pratt and, perhaps more indirectly, C.W. Stoneking. Getting the chance to see Hurley, a resident of Astoria for many years now, inside the intimate confines of Record Room is going to be one of the more special shows this year. RYAN J.
