MONDAY 7/25
8pm- WAX: Stories on Vinyl


We're adorable. We're winsome. We're Chloe and Marcie and we want to see you this Monday, 25th July for our new monthly WAX! 

Storytellers: Sean O'Brien, Tricia Guadagni, Stormageddon and YOU! The skinny: bring a record, tell us a 5-minute story about a song, then spin that track. We wanna know all about that heartbreak/first dance/all night booze binge and we wanna hear the song that just won't unattach itself from the memory.
Specials: Draft beer--$4. Ridiculous, anachronistic entertainment--free all night, baby.

TUESDAY 7/26
8pm- Sex In Space

In space, no one can hear you scream, but can they hear you coming? Galaxies far, far away are big, really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind bogglingly big it is. So what happens when reproduction heads toward the heavens? Aim to misbehave and find out what you should expect on the final frontier Don’t miss it before it disappears…like tears in the rain. 


*Special On Tap Family crossover event with our friends at Astronomy on Tap! Come see MCs from both events collide at the Way Station to settle the score: life science or physical?

THE WAY STATION SUMMER SHOWCASE, DAY 1
8pm- MNOP
Genre: Indie

Formed in Brooklyn during 2013 by guitarist and songwriter Amelia Hazen, May No One Perish (MNOP) has evolved from its anti-folk roots into an energetic four-piece folk-punk band. Fast-paced and confessional, their densely lyrical songs are formed around loss and heartbreak as well as an acute sense of life’s shortness. Their lineup includes Evan Caverninha on bass, Kevin Shipp on lead guitar, and Manolo Estrada on drums, and their first full-band album is slated for release in mid-2016.

THE WAY STATION SUMMER SHOWCASE, DAY 2
8pm- Gentleman Brawlers
Genre: Afropop 
For fans of: TuNeYaRdS & Stereolab

Gentleman Brawlers are a funky 5-Piece band known for intense performances that walk the lines between slick songcraft, theatrical flair, and sonic experimentation. 2014 was a landmark year for the band, drawing critical acclaim in the New York and London Music Press. Brooklyn’s influential magazine The Deli listed them among their top 10 emerging New York bands, and Veteran BBC music writer Tom Robinson offered lavish praise for the group, noting the “silken female vocals” and “micron-precision drum grooves.” Robinson went on to call the ’Brawlers “a band that will take over the world” if they manage to pen the right song. Led visually by vocalist/dancer Becca Fox’s compelling sense of stagecraft, the Gentleman Brawlers are a sight & a sound you don't want to miss! 

"A virtuoso live band of this calibre – grooving together like a beautifully engineered machine – topped off with silken female vocals...Liquid and inventive township style guitars, micron-precision drum grooves, yes… but what’s nailing it all together is a bassist with the effortless rhythmic flick of a Norman Watt-Roy or a James Jamerson."—BBC's Tom Robinson, Fresh On the Net, Fresh Faves  "It had me on the funky intro. Great fusion of afro-soul, and dreamy synth pop, driven by a tight bassline and interesting guitar riffs. Lots of elements coming together beautifully." - David Durant, Fresh On the Net, UK Weekly Listening Post

9pm- Shayfer James
Genre: Folk-Rock, Noir Pop Singer Songwriter
For fans of: Tom Waits, Danny Elfman, Fiona Apple

Shayfer James weaves surprisingly genuine musical landscapes that evoke the gauzy, sweaty sexuality of gulf-coast barrooms and the fantastical, narcotic mysticism of a Lewis Carroll-inspired three-ring circus. Mr. James' noir-infused, piano driven music swaggers from dark danceable anthems to harrowing ballads with jazz lilted satire and whiskey-dirt grit.

"New & Noteworthy Alternative" - iTunes

"Rich orchestration swells over James’ melodic bellows and conjures up a dark and sinful scene underscored by mischievous charm". - wnyc.org

9pm- Sariyah Idan
Genre: World Urban, Singer-Songwriter
For fans of: Nneka, Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Ben Harper, Ani Di Franco, Souad Massi

Sariyah Idan is a sensually feisty creature rooted in cultural, social and verbal poetry. A New York bred and Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, Ms Idan’s evocative style is influenced by reggae and soul’s spiritually political groove, the resiliency in jazz, the celebratory culture mix of Latin styles, hip-hop’s wisdom of overstanding and the sounds of her Jewish ancestry. Her lyricism is inspired by both intimidate personal experience and deep engagement with issues of the day. With a passion for ethnomusicology and social movements, Ms Idan intentionally mixes multiple genres not simply as a sonic tapestry of her environment but also as an expression of social activism and is indebted to her mentors, including Melanie DeMore, for guiding her in this practice. She has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Lee “Scratch” Perry and Yusef Lateef as well as recordings with Marcia Griffiths and Caron Wheeler on Dubblstandat’s album Woman In Dub. 

"Her mix of dub, folk, rock and soul – emotional, raw and political is refreshing and particularly valuable in these tumultuous present times.... powerful, soulful, spirited songs filled with stories of joy, struggle, love and social justice.” - Fusicology
