The 9 PM concert will feature an acoustic set of Pfeil's songs from "Wallpaper" on Rockwood's Stage 2 followed by a screening of episodes from "Off the Wall" (his Roo McGoo-produced docu-series that chronicles the making of "Wallpaper") on Stage 3.
"I have always followed a more nomadic principle of living," Pfeil previously told Playbill.com of the album. "I find that nothing centers or humbles me more than wandering. It is the purest way that I find solace and motivation. When someone wanders, he is forced to focus on his surroundings because he doesn't know them, and if he's going to navigate them, he has to pay attention. After I settled into the chaotic landscape of New York, I strayed from that quiet lifestyle, and the lights went out. The world got too loud and dark, and I kinda lost myself. That happens to a lot of people. 'Wallpaper' sort of became a compass that helped me navigate back onto that nomadic interstate that is the only way I know how to live. It's a travelogue."
The album release party will be produced by Sara Deviney and Rockwood Music Hall, and it is free to the general public. For more information, visit RockwoodMusicHall.com.
