But perhaps not as many will also that John is as well an ace guitarist and songwriter who performs with local acts. His main musical project is the New Paltz-based art-pop band the Sweet Clementines, who recently released their second album, Lake Victoria, and will honor the disc’s unveiling with a record-release show at the Falcon on April 7.

The Sweet Clementines and Mr. Gone will perform at the Falcon in Marlboro, New York, on April 7 at 7:30pm. Donation requested. For more information, call (845) 236-7970 or visit
