The stand-by list becomes available at the admissions desk exactly two (2) hours before the start of the program. You must be physically present to sign up on the list. Any available tickets will be released to the stand-by list, in order, beginning ten minutes before the start of the program. Each person can purchase up to two tickets. You must be physically present at the time your name is called or your place in line will be forfeited. Unfortunately, we are unable to predict how many tickets, if any, may become available.
Chairman's Circle members of the museum have first priority to purchase tickets for sold-out programs, should tickets become available. Please call 212.620.5000 ext. 344 to inquire about membership.
Slaid Cleaves returns to the Rubin Museum after his sold-out concerts in 2009 and 2011. The New York Times has called him “one of the finest songwriters from Texas." He phrases like a grifter trying to croon his low-down past away, and writes like he knows he never will. Slaid has a reputation for sincere and intimate live performances. His song "Broke Down," written with childhood pal Rod Picott, won Best Song of the Year at the Austin Music Awards. And now, 20 years after his Southwest migration from Maine to Texas, he’s releasing his first live album — a double disc, no less, titled Sorrow & Smoke: Live at the Horseshoe Lounge, on Music Road Records.
