To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

She also sent a copy of Like the Linen to Laura Veirs, who liked it so much that she not only had Nguyen open for one of her dates at the Mercury Lounge, Veirs also took her on a European tour and introduced her to Slim Moon, Veirs' former manager and owner of Kill Rock Stars, as well as producer Tucker Martine.
