Harry Taussig & Max Ochs

Fifty years ago, Harry Taussig and Max Ochs were featured on a sampler LP, Contemporary Guitar - Spring '67, alongside John Fahey, Robbie Basho, and Bukka White. Both guitarists were "re-discovered" by Tompkins Square in 2005, and have since released new recordings for the label.

On May 26th, Tompkins Square will release The Music of Harry Taussig & Max Ochs, featuring newly recorded material, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Takoma sampler they first appeared on. The pair will also meet for the first time and play select shows on the West
Coast. The May 28th concert in Berkeley will also feature Tompkins Square recording artist Richard Osborn, a student of the late Robbie Basho.

Tickets are $15 and are available in advance at the link below, or at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby).

The Back Room is an all-ages, BYOB (for those 21+) space, dedicated to (mostly) acoustic music of all kinds. You are welcome to bring your own adult beverage with no additional corkage fee.
