Mikey Collins acoustic at the Space Lab

It’s not difficult to get the sense that Mikey Collins feels like he belongs in another era. He’s spent some time as a true vagabond after his stints in the punk-blues band Mercy Mercy Me and shambolic country-rock act Say Brother in Columbia; traveling North America and Europe as a busker and garage-folk one-man-band while briefly settling in San Francisco and then New Orleans. He’s been living in Virginia for the last few years, playing with The Old-Time Snake Milkers and digging deep into the roots of the music he loves. Solo Mikey picks a hearty blend of pre-war American music styles including piedmont blues, early country, and old-time Appalachian string band music on guitar, banjo, and harmonica- presenting the music of 20s and 30s America with the energy of a millennial man who can back up much of the content of this music with lived experience.

The Space Lab is now serving draft beer and cider!

"At our SpaceLab, we have a wide selection of nitro cold brews on tap including collaborations with roasters from around Virginia, in addition to all of our favorite espresso drinks both hot and cold." Snowing in Space is centrally located in downtown Charlottesville across from the Amtrak Station and offers acoustic shows on Friday and Saturday nights.
