TUESDAY, May 13 Asbury Cafe Presents Acoustic: From Omaha, NE / Los Angeles, CA, Jake Bellows / Carl Chesna / Dan Matlack / Rachel Bergman / Accidental Seabirds and special guests, Doors 7pm, $12 (advance) / $13 (at the door). A Seated No Talking During The Performances show. Coffee Will Be Served All Night. Jake Bellows had quit music. Or so he thought. After fronting Neva Dinova for more than 15 years which included five full-lengths, a split EP, and countless tours, he packed up his dog and moved from his native Omaha to his girlfriend's hometown of Los Angeles. Two days before he left he recorded 18 demos with musician and engineer Ben Brodin (Before the Toast and Tea, Conor Oberst) at Brodin's insistence. Once in L.A., Bellows got a job installing sliding-glass doors and sold his Les Paul to buy a Datsun pick- up truck. Though he had no plans to form a new band, he played the occasional solo show, performed with Whispertown, and continued to write songs. In early 2011, an invitation arrived from Omaha's Film Streams Theater for Jake's old friend Ryan Fox (Our Fox, The Good Life), also living on the West Coast, to perform an original live film score. Fox enlisted Bellows and Brodin to collaborate and the trio began to compose and discuss improvisational ideas over long- distance. Since they were all going to be in Omaha and had a long history of playing in each other's bands, Brodin and Fox nudged Bellows into booking studio time to record some of his dormant songs. The rest is history... SEE bio for more. DAN MATLACK: http://www.reverbnation.com/danmatlack

Musician Dan Matlack cut his teeth playing acoustic guitar while playing professional baseball in the San Diego Padres’ farm system in the 1990’s. Hotels got lonely and the guitar gave the singer-songwriter a much needed outlet for boredom, creativity and expression.
