10pm- Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
"You must not try to make love definite. It is the divine accident of life.”
So said Sherwood Anderson in his great book, Winesburg, Ohio. Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak knows all about accidents. Of birth. Of place and strange times. Of music heard through screen windows in summer, of lonely faces in discos while blizzards raged outside in the Northern night.

What’s a young criminal to do? Read every book he can get his hands on, obsess over record club 45s, play the theme song to MASH over and over on a rented trumpet, lose a thousand fistfights till he finally wins one. Ride a stolen bike, a bus, a train, get out.

Years later, redemption at last. Robert Whaley is just about where he should be. Compared to everyone from David Byrne to Leonard Cohen, he’s been welcoming audiences into a private world of enchantment and debauchery, and oh the influences are clear:  Anderson (words and emotions), Fossee (dance and controlled hysteria), poetry (Artaud and
O’Hara).

Whaley had a lot of practice riding the line between rock n’ roll, performance art, and stand up comedy as the front man for The Niagaras, a legendary force of Manhattan’s live music scene of 80s and 90s, when a wild front man could dance on bar tops and swing from the rafters without getting banned, except for when he was:

“Lunacy? Spectacle? And music too??”- Rene Chun, New York Times

No wonder the attraction included a “celebrity” following – everyone from Ethan Hawke to Kevin Spacey to Gwyneth Paltrow to the good people in Anthrax.

As a songwriter, Whaley has covered a lot of ground and has shown range through a number of outlets.  He cowrote and recorded the original score for the feature film, Joe the King, starring Val Kilmer, and has also written for the stage –his rock musical Wrong Way Up ran off-Broadway at NYC’s Zipper Theater. He is currently working with playwright Matthew Freeman on a musical adaptation of the great 1908 novel, Buried Alive – now titled Selling Sacred Objects.

Meat Market Lullaby, the second album from Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak, reflects an obsession with pre-1974 soul, filled with nuance and tender bitter sweetness.  Jazz pianist Mara Rosenbloom sets the tone with her loose/attacking, touch on grand piano and Rhodes. Pete O’Connell lends a sophisticated sense of drive and counterpoint as both bassist and co-arranger. Whaley’s long-time collaborator, lead guitarist and singer, Tony Grimaldi, shines with masterful harmonies and chunky guitar lines.  Chris Schultz, percussionist with Blue Man Group, shimmers, cascades and of course, rocks.

Recorded live in the studio with a minimum of overdubs, a maximum of misfit charm, and this: “Only the few know the sweetness of the twisted apples.” (Sherwood Anderson, again.)

11pm- Nick Sumner
Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Rock
For fans of: Ray Lamontagne, Biffy Clyro, Tom Waits, Jeff Buckley

Nick weaves haunting lyrics and graceful melodies, bringing them to life through emotionally charged performances. Part of what makes his set an experience, more than simply a show, is his ability to take the audience with him to the places that inspire the music. He has been to SXSW and shared the stage with Slash when he fronted a hard-rock trio, but finds no greater fulfillment than to forge a bond between himself and his audience.

Genre: Folk, Singer-Songwriter
For fans of: Johnny Cash, Lana Del Ray, Vladimir Nabokov, Spike Jonze, and Patsy Cline

Liza Warrior Princess is a modern folk singer-songwriter based in Gowanus, but originally hailing from Detroit, Michigan. Her fiery vocal stylings mix the bluesy grit of her dystopian hometown with the spooky dissonance of her Slavic motherland. With an eye for the absurd in the modern tech landscape, her lyrics explore the numerous ways we embrace and yet fear our iPhones and (oh yes) our OKCupid profiles. Unlike recent big acts in the world of folk, she refuses to wear suspenders and/or pretend it is 1890.

Even while maintaining his rigorous touring schedule, The Saturday Giant is preparing his full-length debut for 2014.

"A one man band who carries the show with charismatic charm and pop hooks." -The Sunday Idiom [Michigan]

"Downright impressive…an indie-rock take on the one-man band with pop-melodies and looped reverb goodness." -Knoxville Music Warehouse [Tennessee]

"Previously, Andrew Bird was the one exception to my anti-one-man-band rule. As of last weekend, Saturday Giant is my new exception." -The Other Paper [Ohio]

Midnight Special- The Fantastic Plastics
Genre: Neo New Wave
For fans of: Devo, The Flaming Lips, Man or Astroman?, B-52s, The Faint, The Cars, Blondie, The White Stripes

If Devo and The White Stripes hooked up and had a love child that child would be The Fantastic Plastics. A 2 piece Girl/Boy combo, The Fantastic Plastics deliver big sound with their Moog synth, big rock guitars, and electro drum and bass. Their electric stage show is enhanced with vintage TVs, and Atari Video Music Machine, costumes, and songs you can’t help but sing along to all night long. We Are Obsolete!
