Ardmore Music Hall just tweeted to inform us that David Duchovny will be performing there in late October. I know what you’re probably thinking: “Performing what? X-Files monologues? Some kind of one-man show?” But no. Apparently the New York-born star has ventured into singer-songwriter territory, and he’s coming to share songs from his debut album, Hell or Highwater, which dropped in May.

Of the music, New York Daily News calls it a “credible rock album,” likening Duchovny’s voice to Jakob Dylan. “He has the kind of husky tone that would allow him to get away with talking his way through the songs. Yet, he can hold a note long enough to give him some pop chops. … The music, credited entirely to Duchovny, leans towards hearty folk-rock, with ample guitar outbursts.” Here’s the video for his first single:

“Making this record is a dream come true, but I never had this dream—it’s still a shock when I think about how all this music happened,” Duchovny said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “What I do know is that I feel these songs represent the truest expression that I’ve ever been able to achieve and I look forward to sharing it with everyone.”

The show takes place October 28th at 8 pm. Tickets—ranging from $23 to a $150 VIP package that includes a meet-and-greet—go on sale tomorrow are available now and, if the much-favorited and retweeted tweet from Ardmore Music Hall is any indication, going fast. Buy them here.
