10pm-  Sean Coleman and the Quasars
Genre: Rockabilly, R&B
For fans of: Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Howlin' Wolf

Sean Coleman & the Quasars are notable arrivals to NYC’s rockin’ scene. Though they’ve been kicking around the New York City bar scene for about two years, honing their original-era rock’n’roll offering, they are now coming to the forefront of the city’s greaser subculture. Sean first unleashed his signature howl as part of the Boston scene fronting The Bourbonaires and The Swinedells. He then relocated to New York City to find a killer band: And he got it.

The Quasars rip out primitive, gutbucket sounds rooted in the jump blues tradition, deftly folding in aspects of R&B, Rockabilly, Gospel and Soul. Sean’s performances are that of a southern bible-thumper under the spell of the Devil’s music; he’s got the frantic energy of Jerry Lee and Little Richard and a visceral wail that’s somewhere between Howlin Wolf and Mickey Hawks. Witnessing a Quasars performance is like witnessing an exorcism, and that’s beginning to garner them major attention from the national and international rockin’ scene. With a brand new hot piece of wax ready to release (45 rpm, if you please), they’re definitely a combo to watch.

“Sean Channels the fire that Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis used to spew. He sings with the passion that comes from gospel via the church and early Rhythm & Blues… and it’s about the feeling… Sean’s singing makes you feellike there’s a fiery Sermon going on. There’s the idea that Good and Bad are in the room having a fight, and the
outcome matters.” -Blowfish, via Boston Groupie News

“Sean has a great R&B-styled gruff voice a la (Billy Lee) Riley or Billy Gayle of the Rhythm Kings. He Hollers in fine style with a Chester Burnett style quaver in there too.” -Phil Davies, Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

“Speaking of Little Richard, singer Sean Coleman has a big league Rock N Roll shout that closely approximates that particular idol of his… Coleman shimmies, shakes, and works a room as if it’s the Apollo or Grand Ole Opry…” -Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe

“A growling, howling, badass of a front man.“ -Q Division Studios, Boston

“Sean was just inspiring!” -Boston Groupie News

8pm- Yeti
Genre: Indie-rock / dream-punk
For fans of:  Sleater-Kinney, The Cranberries, Fugazi

Yeti is bass-driven philosophical dream-punk with cute killer harmonies. This New York-based trio reeks of feral femininity, fermenting in the forgotten woods of Staten Island. Their music fuses Sleater-Kinney sensibilities with The Cranberries’ emotional power. Yeti can be found playing at various venues throughout the New York City area, or in very cold, dark, remote caverns from which few have ever returned.

9pm- The Blackberry Brandies
Genre: Americana
For fans of: Rock, Americana, Country Mojo

Bettina Schelker - superwoman, singer/songwriter, political activist and former Swiss National Boxing Champion, with an exceptional reputation far beyond the Swiss borders.

Thomas Baumgartner – rock rebel with over 20 years of international experience in the genre of loud guitar music (Erotic Jesus Undergod, Gurd).

Together they're The Blackberry Brandies. Two musical heavyweights on a common path - a more than explosive combination! As unusual as if Tracy Chapman and Lynyrd Skynyrd would share the same stage together...

Tracks-Magazine:
Definitely, the Blackberry Brandies are a great (live) band with road dust on their boots and a lot of feeling in and between the lines. The Blackberry Brandies are more of an urgent recommendation to all friends of music with soul, lot of guitar, Americana and southern rock, than an insider tip!

TagesWoche-Newspaper:
Chords, heavy as a semi-trailer... insistant, snappy as a hot desert wind. Schelker and Baumgartner merge where they come closest to a down to earth heat-shimmering Rootsrock, whose range includes the fragile song as a powerful thunder roll.

A declaration of love - life, certainly, but above all on the myths of this tradition-safe rock.

10pm- Cuervo Jones

10pm- Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
Comic Tales’ lead singer, songwriter, and trumpeter Robert Whaley previously fronted NYC rock legends, the Niagaras. With a penchant for interpretive dancing on tabletops and hilariously satirical rants on a broken childhood, Whaley electrified national audiences with appearances on Good Morning America, the Oxygen network, and Fox. The Niagaras were a hugely popular staple of the Manhattan scene for nearly two decades, attracting celebrities, controversy, and packed houses along the way.

Seeking a return to the R&B roots that got him into music in the first place, and informed by an almost pathological aversion to anything post-1974, Whaley joined forces with talented newcomer Aaron Wyanski as pianist and arranger. Along with industry veterans Michael “Miguelito” LaMorté (Mini-King, Grupo Miguelito) on bass and longtime Niagaras drummer Dylan Wissing (Johnny Socko, Novel), the group has crafted an organic, literate, deeply-grooving collection of semi-autobiographical songs.

Written in a tiny studio bursting with 20th Century literature, and inspired by a massive collection of obscure vinyl, Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak have managed to create a sound and a show which is both timeless and cutting-edge. The sweat-drenched performances and the rapidly-disappearing ability to deeply engage and entertain a crowd really leave a lasting impression. Sounds like hype, until you experience it in person. 

SUNDAY 4/27

Raised on various forms of American roots music: rock and roll, southern rock, blues, and country (and later punk rock and hardcore), the template was set for what would later become his distinctive style of American folk music. Influences can, at times, be broad, but easily narrowed down to early Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, Willie Nelson and Leonard Cohen.
He has shared the stage with such acts as Those Darlins', Murder By Death, David Dondero, and Grant Hart (Husker Du). His debut EP was released Jan 10th, 2014.

9pm- Rivals of the Peacemaker
Genre: Americana / indie folk
For fans of: The Civil Wars, The Lumineers, Emmylou Harris, Amy Mann

Sometimes the creative process sucks, and no one knows that more than really creative artists. Just ask Alex and Billy Watson, the wife-husband artistic force behind Chicago’s dark folk quintet, Rivals of the Peacemaker.  Rivals hold court in both approaches that have served country-tinged folk and Americana well over the past 100-plus years: Slimmed down to a duo, they create a stark, intimate mesh of top-notch songwriting and evocative vocals; With a backing band - made up of guitarist Anthony Rubino, drummer Derek Crawford and Jeff O'Connor on bass - they can craft soaring ballads and fiery, ramshackle stompers. Look for Rivals of the Peacemaker debut album August 2013.

“Rivals of the Peacemaker layer lush harmonies and foot stomping rhythms over evocative and dark songwriting “ - WLUW

Genre: Rock, 70’s Soul
For fans of:  The Black Crowes,  Pearl Jam, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith

Shortly after, Brian was joined by guitar player Yoav Thaler and a tight songwriting team was born. Brian and Yoav went through several different lineups in search of the perfect pocket, and ended up with bass monster Josh Levine locking down the rhythm section with a super solid groove. The Plaine Truth melds classic / hard rock, soul and funk into catchy, intelligent songs that capture the hearts of listeners everywhere. The band recorded a five-song EP in 2008 and is currently gigging around NYC.  A good fairytale is a really sweet thing but there ain't nothing like THE PLAINE TRUTH!

“There's nothing plain about The Plaine Truth. The band has a keen ear for melody and an ability to craft songs that insinuate themselves into your brain and refuse to leave. Alive is a splendid introduction, the sort that will have you checking the band's website on a regular basis to find out when the next album/ep is coming out. Don't miss out on The Plaine Truth.” Wildy Haskell - Wildy's World

Squirrels From Hell fired their marketing and booking staff years ago, and have found creative satisfaction by dealing truth-to-truth with a limited number of producers, promoters, and club owners who have earned their trust. While they freely share much of their music at www.hellsville.com, only the raw but controlled energy of a live performance will demonstrate how Squirrels From Hell continue to influence NY music culture.

Review: From "The Modern Folk Music of America" blog:
“NYC based upright bassist and singer/songwriter joanna sternberg is on my good side with her album 'new york city' for a few reasons, first i love squirrels (seriously just look at my instagram). but more importantly she writes classic sounding songs, somewhere between stately pop and surreal country, delivers them in a timeless, unique voice, doesn't seem to be taking herself too seriously, and there is plenty of reverb on the guitar. it's no surprise she comes to making this high quality music so naturally, she grew up making music, starting at the tender age of 5. i recommend this one. especially 'human magnet song'.”

THURSDAY 5/15
8pm- Rachel Schain 
Genre: Singer/Songwriter
For fans of: Dar Williams, Barenaked Ladies, Elvis Costello

Rachel Schain brings a jolt of caffeine to the coffeehouse, pairing strikingly honest lyrics with an unwavering rock-edged soprano voice. She uses pop melodies to break down emotional walls and then sings from her heart straight to yours. Her playful sense of humor electrifies her acoustic rock sound and brings a smile to cope with painful subjects. Influenced by OK Go, Dar Williams, Tally Hall, Elvis Costello, Barenaked Ladies and Tori Amos, her songs - a hodgepodge of familiar rock forms put through the wringer - stay with you long after you listen.

“That disarming alacrity, in addition to an ear for melodic pop and her distinctive, full and undeniably rocking soprano, is what elevates Rachel Schain’s simple compositions so far above the average coffeehouse acoustic singer-songwriter set.” - PopMatters.com


“Schain's appeal is in her catchy melodies and clever lyrics...these are not your average folk-pop songs. And while several of the songs are about romantic relationships, they're love songs for girls who don't spend most of their time obsessing over boys (and the people who love them).” - DEArtsInfo.com

11pm- Fellaheen
Genre: Alt / indie / Americana
For fans of:  List bands that you sound like or if you like this band than they would like you: Tom Waits, Lou Reed, the Band

Fellaheen whips up a lyrical mix of alt rock ’n’ roll, scratchy blues, Americana-rama, and downbeat jazz informed with a murky existential wit, comparable to the likes of Tom Waits, Wilco, the Velvet Underground, and Kurt Weill. More deeply-rooted influences include Beggar’s Banquet-era Stones, the Beatles, Captain Beefheart, Randy Newman, Leonard Cohen, and Mose Allison.

Fellaheen is led by Bruce Hanson, a somewhat-grizzled veteran musician born in Chicago and raised in New Jersey, who specializes in writing slightly off-kilter original songs about shady characters, particle physics, love ’n’ hate, and works of art in the age of mechanical reproduction. Joining Bruce in Fellaheen’s live performances are Ben Dumbauld (accordion, percussion), David Evan (lead guitar), Kaveh Haghtelab (drums), and Nick Sullivan (bass, vocals).

On March 1, Fellaheen will release a new full-length album (recorded primarily at Seaside Lounge Studios in Park Slope, Brooklyn), entitled “You Either Get Hands or Get Wings”, the followup to its highly-acclaimed 2012 release “Death & Frolic”.

“Armed with oddball, brilliant compositions containing humor, verve, alacrity, and mysteriousness, [Fellaheen’s] songs play out as a cinematic noir soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist. Bruce Hanson plays the world-weary, self-destructive private dick hellbent on solving the vicissitudes of his own psyche.” —Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Weekly

“You just gotta admire the ambition, ingenuity and imagination at work.... [Fellaheen] skillfully blends elements of moody jazz, gritty blues, and melodic alternative rock into a fresh, compelling and harmonic synthesis. The cool, raspy vocals likewise hit the soulful spot. Ditto the quirky, yet incisive lyrics. Best of all, there's a hypnotic smoky atmosphere evident throughout which adds immensely to the overall sonic richness of this excellent and inspired oddball project.” —Joe Wawyrnizak, Jersey Beat Magazine

“What does cigarette smoke sound like? It sounds like Fellaheen’s “Always on the Way.” The smoke suffuses the lead vocal and oozes through the song’s twin accordion cushion. Listening to this, I imagine a Parisian café, filled with scientists and artists making secret plans. That may sound bizarre, but the musical setting here makes it entirely plausible.” — Oliver di Place

“Trippy, dark, and rumbling like a clumsily approaching lumbering monster waving a bong, [Fellaheen] will shroud you in storm clouds and blow your mind. Immersing yourself in this darkly swirling (and highly intellectual and literate) music is not a bad way to channel your darker energies.”—Jennifer Layton, Indie-Music.com

“[Fellaheen] succeeds in tribal exorcisms, garage psychedelia, and sparse Americana with equal skill. Great imagery alongside some soul-baring episodes, with just the right sense of humor and the macabre.” —Bill Holmes, Pop Culture Press

“Armed with an uncanny (and unfair) sense of melody, [Fellaheen’s] Bruce Hanson weaves a diverse array of elements into a final product that is seamless, fresh, [and] living with impossible vibrancy.” —Jedd Beaudoin, Pop Matters

“Beautifully eerie and mellow, infused with a serenely smoky’n’sulky atmosphere, further enriched by an entrancingly jazzy and laid-back sound, this marvelously moody album positively drips with a profound sense of despair, ennui, and unfulfilled yearning that’s truly something to hear...Astonishing stuff.” —Jersey Beat Magazine

9pm- Jessie Kilguss
Genre: Dark Americana
For fans of: Lucinda Williams, Aimee Mann, Emmylou Harris

Dark Americana songstress, Jessie Kilguss and her band perform songs from Kilguss' three original albums. A former actress, Jessie had the life changing experience that sealed her fate as a singer/songwriter when she appeared on London and Sydney stages with one of her favorite singers, Marianne Faithfull, in the Tom Waits musical “The Black Rider.”  It was during this production that Jessie realized that she wanted to be in charge of her creativity in a way that playing the same role for six months or more simply couldn’t provide.  Shortly after this tour ended, Jessie started writing songs.
Kilguss co-wrote her first two records with gold record award winning production team Super Buddha (Blondie, Rufus Wainright.) In August 2011, Jessie traveled to Ireland with her band, Radio Gold ( John Kengla, Rob Health & Jason Loughlin) to record The Sky Road at Grouse Lodge in rural Rosemount.
Jessie Kilguss: Vocals
Jason Loughlin: Guitar and vocals
John Kengla: bass
Rob Heath: Drums

“The Sky Road is redolent with that mix of good intentions and bad deeds that defines humanity, and mixes a strong sense of melody with a darkly disjointed compositional style that is both appealing and occasionally jarring.  The Sky Road offers songs of consistent quality spiked with flashes of brilliance, and it’s hard not to think that Jessie Kilguss and Radio Gold are just getting warmed up. – Wildy’s World

“Brooklyn singer Jessie Kilguss teamed up with Radio Gold, a rock trio that gives the songs on her new album The Sky Road a power boost. Lucinda Williams is one her musical heroes an it shows in tracks like 1O Stories High, Riverboat Gamblers and Tennessee.” - Here Comes the Flood

The Daily News: "Her songs are layered and lush, confessional and haunting…quite compelling."

Wildy’s World:”Don't be surprised if Nocturnal Drifter is looked back upon in certain circles as a seminal album of the Indie movement in the first decade of the twenty-first century…Don't miss out on this one.”

8pm- Elisa Flynn
Genre: Indie-folk

Brooklyn Indie folk chanteuse Elisa Flynn is a guitarist and songwriter who played in indie rock, punk, and Americana bands for the better part of the last two decades. Her broodingly nuanced vocals, and a sardonic humor with an undercurrent of unease, give a darkly gothic twist on the singer-songwriter genre. She has opened for artists including Bee and Flower, Enablers, Damon & Naomi, Lucinda Black Bear, Lydia Loveless, and Dean Wareham. In the last year and a half, she has also been the host of the quarterly Tripeg Lobo songwriter series at the Way Station, with themes from the Anthology of American Folk Music, "Kill...and Kill Again: a night of Murder Ballads," and songs based on found photographs. Flynn is currently working on her 4th solo recording for Fall 2014 release.

“With a polymath’s insatiable curiosity and a keen sense of history, she proved as knowledgeable about classic Americana roots as she is with indie rock, and it showed in her music. Armed with just her acoustic guitar, her trusty loop pedal and a richly nuanced voice that she let trail off with a suspenseful vibrato, she made her way through aching big-sky themes, a bitter returning Civil War soldier’s lament and a disarmingly pretty but grimly sarcastic Afghan War narrative told from a perspective looking out from inside an “iron galleon.” – newyorkmusicdaily.wordpress.com

“The songs are haunting and very dark (at least one about a serial killer but all seem to have a dark, historical perspective) and the rhythm section is solid but it’s Flynn’s powerful vocals that really stand out.” Review of 19th Century Songs on

9pm- Daphne Lee Martin
Genre: Songwriter/Electronic
For fans of: Bat for Lashes, Portishead, Aimee Mann

After a whirlwind affair with roots music, garnering her several songwriting and performance awards, including CT Music Awards' 2012 Country Artist of the Yearand Whalie Awards' Album of the Year, Daphne Lee Martin is back in force with a new collection of songs on her latest record, Moxie (Telegraph Recording Company). Since its release, Moxie has been featured on The Needle Drop, Rolling Stone contributor Eric Danton's Listen, Dammit, NPR's Where We Live, No Depression, WTNH's CT Style, The Day's Live Lunch Break, and Boston Dig, Surviving the Golden Age, as well as a number of other national blogs and zines. Moxie charted in the Top 200 CMJ weekly chart in March (with over 45 adds) and was included in Under the Radar's official SXSW Sampler followed by a national tour including SXSW. She is currently in the studio working on the follow-up record, Frost and preparing to tour again in the fall.

Boasting a new cast of characters in a deeply provocative and reflective story, Daphne's live show leans heavily on trip hop, blue-eyed soul and prohibition-era voodoo all set in a seedy cabaret. Moxie was produced by Bill Readey in New Haven CT and features several guests from the wealth of the Elm City's music scene, including John Panos (Mates of State), Matt Lindauer (Sugarbat), Eric Stevenson (Pocket Vinyl), Milksop:Unsung, Matt Thomas (M.T.Bearington), Sam Perduta (Elison Jackson) and Erik Elligers (Goodnight Blue Moon).

“Moxie has a whole lot of style, confidence, and just the right amount of self-conscious smirk. Warm and inviting, it duly manifests its role as the hooker with a heart of gold.” - Fabricoh Magazine

"Lemme tell you it's a badly behaved set of tracks. It's a liquored up weekend whose hangover lasts well into the work week." -Anthony Fantano, The Needle Drop

"Moxie is an altogether different affair. Less a collection of songs – more a soundtrack to a wild burlesque show. Underwater, dreamy vocals, you hear reggae beats under New Orleans horns….bossa nova…honky tonk…Gypsy and swing….all in a late-night cabaret. " -John Dankosky, NPR

“The music is a little dirty, a little dangerous but a hell of a good time.” - Chip McCabe, CT.com

”Devilishly delightful… a skip through sin city.” - Dissociative ID, WKDU Phildelphia

”Cheeky, and full of verve and swing... equal to anything Dr. John might have conjured up in his voodoo lair.” - Vincent Bator, Examiner.com

“With her strong writing style and sultry vocal delivery, Martin has you in the palm of her hand from track one.” - Troy Michael, Innocent Words Chicago

"Channeling Peggy Lee singing in some interstellar speakeasy backed by Jack White, where the fashion of bowler hats and bow ties are mixed with Go Go boots and mini-skirts" -Rick Bowen, No Depression

10pm- Kagero
Genre: Japanese Gypsy Rock
For fans of: Gogol Bordello meets David Bowie

Upbeat, folky pop songs with world music flavors, sung by a Japanese man with a British accent. Kagero’s sound is a melting pot of tonalities and rhythms from Asia, the Middle East, South America and Eastern Europe -- "Cultural Confusion". Sometimes the songs are beautiful imagery, sometimes sad folk tales, and sometimes silly songs about drinking. But the tunes are always fun, and the show is high energy dancing good time.

"Kagero’s world music goulash is very tasty -- even if you don’t always know what’s you’re eating."

“Rooted in uplifting elements from eclectic origins, "Japanese Gypsy Rock" unites Kagero’s musical influences and talents into a cross-culture dance party.”

An experienced singer from Prague, Czech republic, performing her original music. M.F.has been surrounded by musicians since the moment she was born.

After a decade spent gaining experiences on the Prague Jazz Scene (from blues and fusion oriented bands to cooperations with international bands, backing up rockstars and diving into silence with music therapy), she decided to get her ass kicked by the New York City, especially due to her having a serious affair with the devilish Charette and his "reliably burning" chops.

“Her voice is graceful, and her phrasing and delivery are right on tempo.” - James Nadal, All About Jazz

“Her biography is impressive. (...) Jazz pop? Folk jazz? Either way it's cool, and if this is the sort of stuff she is capable of writing then I hope there is more on the way.” - Tony Emmerson, Prague Jazz Blogspot

9pm- Battery One Dollar
Genre: Acoustic gloomlodic folk
For fans of:  List bands that you sound like or if you like this band than they would like you

Battery One Dollar originated in the Bronx was once a band and now exist as the moniker of singer songwriter Danilo Parrales.  The songs are about chandeliers, amputees, dance, and other entities in between.  Battery One Dollar is currently working on a new album to be released on early May.

"The music and lyrics of Battery One Dollar almost instantly place you in the story setting of a society content with despair and hopelessness, told by a protagonist that is somewhat dysfunctional, alienated and yet above all brilliant, expressive, and HONEST. Its the story of “Ok, today I might die, but if I don’t, meh . . . there’s always tomorrow.” …and so on. This is the music you might expect to hear in the soundtrack to a Wes Anderson film at first, but just as the somber vocalising comes in, there is no dark comedy there- it’s just DARK, but in an oddly cheerful way." walktheplankmag.com

10pm- Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
Comic Tales’ lead singer, songwriter, and trumpeter Robert Whaley previously fronted NYC rock legends, the Niagaras. With a penchant for interpretive dancing on tabletops and hilariously satirical rants on a broken childhood, Whaley electrified national audiences with appearances on Good Morning America, the Oxygen network, and Fox. The Niagaras were a hugely popular staple of the Manhattan scene for nearly two decades, attracting celebrities, controversy, and packed houses along the way.

Seeking a return to the R&B roots that got him into music in the first place, and informed by an almost pathological aversion to anything post-1974, Whaley joined forces with talented newcomer Aaron Wyanski as pianist and arranger. Along with industry veterans Michael “Miguelito” LaMorté (Mini-King, Grupo Miguelito) on bass and longtime Niagaras drummer Dylan Wissing (Johnny Socko, Novel), the group has crafted an organic, literate, deeply-grooving collection of semi-autobiographical songs.

Written in a tiny studio bursting with 20th Century literature, and inspired by a massive collection of obscure vinyl, Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak have managed to create a sound and a show which is both timeless and cutting-edge. The sweat-drenched performances and the rapidly-disappearing ability to deeply engage and entertain a crowd really leave a lasting impression. Sounds like hype, until you experience it in person.

I was encouraged by a friend to hang around and listen to his set at the Nuyorican Poets Café that night, and I'm glad I did. His vocals and the band backing him that evening really effected me with its rich sound.”  -Random Musings

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 hometownwith 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.

Genre:  Rock and Roll/Country/Punk
For fans of:  Frank Turner, Jake Bugg, John Mellencamp, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros

A young and devilishly handsome fellah from Brooklyn named Martin got sick and tired. Sick and tired of work and school, of playing by himself an acoustic guitar, of writing songs that he kept stored away, and of not being in a rock and roll band. So he put a little effort in and put one together. And there it was: Six Brick Shack, a real Brooklyn band.

10pm- Dogbottom Boys
Genre: Bluegrass
For fans of: Old Crow Medicine Show, Alison Krauss

Not much is known about the Dogbottom Boys. Rumor has it that the unsavory threesome washed up in Brooklyn after a string of unlikely (and somewhat illegal) circumstances involving lead singer Janky Jay, a stolen automobile, and the daughter of a prominent farmer in Sugar Grove, Kentucky. But all that’s behind us. These days, the Boys pass their days drowning their sorrows in whiskey and playing good old fashioned American music for the delight of local barmaids.

10pm- Shane Jacob Philips / Social Justice & Peace
Genre: Folk, Singer Songwriter, Political
For fans of:  What if Marvin Gaye sang Bob Dylan tunes?

Social Justice and Peace is Shane Philips’ latest release in two years and is a departure from his last three albums that were rooted deeply in traditional soul. Searching for something more, Philips decided to immerse himself into a community of folk artists and was able to focus his songwriting around stories that spoke to his life growing up in a farm town and countless other events that would eventually shape his life as he traveled around the world. Philips eventually found himself at a piano in Nashville Tennessee where his roots in soul finally found convergence with the narrative he was searching for in folk music. Social Justice and Peace does what it says by speaking to the ideas that used to unite the world but now divide us. His message asks us to look inward and act outward with the idea that love is the universal fabric that holds humanity together.


 “What a great track, Love it, and what a voice!”—Allen Powell, Solar Radio- UK


“Philips is very much his own man and his command of the genre — both as composer and singer of great distinction and emotional power — is impressive” —Greg Quill, Toronto Star

Genre: Electro-Pop, Exotica, Dub
For fans of: Mum, Cornelius, Flying Lotus, Martin Denny

Peptalk is Preshish Moments (electronics), Shayna Dunkelman (percussion) and Angelica Negron (voice). Peptalk's visceral music combines many exotic instruments with lush electronic sounds and airy vocals. They are obsessed with creating a hyperreal world both sonically and visually by blending bits of memory from their lives in Tokyo, San Juan and Los Angeles. Each member plays with bands and artists such Yoko Ono, Glasser, Xiu Xiu, Thurston Moore, Balun, and Tyondai Braxton, but by joining forces, they create rich musical arrangements of various percussion, accordion, strings, harp and voice accompanied by layers of synths, samples and electronics beats. Themes of solitude, escapism, and cultural curiosity are expressed through their songs that drift between intimate lyrical moments, dreamy sound textures, and grooves.

"A remarkable aspect of this music is the interaction between Shayna's percussion and the electronic processing" by Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on Tom Tom Magazine

MARTiNA is the solo project of New York-based keyboardist, singer, songwriter, and producer Martina Car. Her songs blend soulful vocals and ethereal humming with melodic pop. Martina released her home recorded album Overturned earlier this year and is still in the launching pad stages of her project - which will soon feature other instruments and band members. Her eclectic influences are reflected in her music, which ranges from bare-boned vocal driven songs to looping textural layers with synthesized elements. Her stage debut started earlier this year at the 2014 Battle of the Boroughs - a competition for up and coming performers held at The Greene Space studios of WNYC/WQXR - where she was selected as one of the five finalists to represent Manhattan.

"Martina Car has been writing music since she was 15, but she never imagined she'd be pursuing it as a career. A year ago, she left behind her graduate studies in biology and a job that had her “performing brain surgeries on ants” to focus on music. The judges [at WNYC/WQXR's Battle of the Boroughs] praised the Union Square singer-songwriter's lyrics and piano playing, and the emotion that laced her performance."

My records feature performances by percussionist Pat Spurgeon (Rogue Wave), Sylvain Carton (Beats Antique, John Vanderslice), and Charith Premawardhana (Mars Volta, Classical Revolution) as well as many other great musicians from the bay area.

Daniel Amedee is a 26-year old singer from New Orleans. He describes his music as orchestral rock but I guess you might as well say it's folk? I don’t know. En tout cas, his debut album Themes From ... is beautifully dreamy, very well produced and overall pretty enjoyable! A fitting warm summer evening soundtrack. --Hendrik Schimpler - Poule D'or

New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz, right? I guess this is why the city is often referred to as the most unique in America, as Daniel Amedee is a singer songwriter who demonstrates a real knack for writing gorgeous cinematic choral pieces, like Home And Heartfelt . --James Godwin - Informal Flick-Thru

Daniel Amedee captures the soul of Cat Stevens in his incredible lyrics with a dynamic voice that can bellow low like that of Leonard Cohen or reach high like Elliot Smith. This is topped off with biting, epic music reminiscent of Arcade Fire. We are excited about the future of this talented New Orleans singer songwriter. --Jeff Libby - CEO of Expat Records

9pm- Pete Lanctot 
Genre: Americana
For fans of: Tom Waits, John Cale, The Mississippi Sheiks, Ernest Tubb

Pete Lanctot's songs are surreal and mysterious narratives featuring sordid casts of characters who’s origins are vague, and seem equally likely to be found in present day New York City, a Memphis juke joint of the 1920s or hitchhiking a depression era plains state highway. Steeped in American traditions of blues, folk and country, and backed by a talented cast of musicians and improvisers Lanctot’s music is original, rabble rousing, heartbreaking and soul searching, always exploring the non-traditional without relying on reproduction.

“Florencia Gonzalez Big Band performance was again one of the most interesting and enjoyable acts, with the right balance between school and street, between north and south, between the past and  future of music. ” - LA DIARIA

“…Florencia’s charts have an air you may call Third-Stream, you may call world music. I’ d call it worth hearing.” - JAZZ INSIDE

“…Florencia Gonzalez seems to impress everyone with whom she comes in contract.” -JAZZIZ

“…tracks driven by Latin dance rhythms (tango, candombe, etc) but stretched into modern realms of harmony, rhythm and form that recall the best of Mingus, Monk and Gil Evans…”
“…an array of colors (…) as she marries modern jazz harmony and the occasional 12 tonish classical master to the deepest folkloric traditions of the south of South America.”

Blue Suede News; “Eugene’s has a rich baritone vocal just right for this music.”
CD Baby; “This is all around country. It reminds me of the famous words from "Blues Brothers": "We got both kinds: country AND western". Seen in overvue "Hill 'billy' Shakespeare" can be discriped as modern hillbilly with one foot in rockabilly and the other in western swing. But Eugene Chrysler is not afraid of playing many types of music. Allmost every track is in a new style. That makes it a very variated and collorfull album, sure to please all kinds of country-lovers from old time entusiasts to Shania Twain fans. Here's something for everybody.”

Itunes; “Hill "Billy" Shakespeare makes me want to hop into a Chrysler and head to Nashville. Its great driving music. Eugene Chrysler has pulled together a talented bunch of musicians that bring great energy to his often nostalgic and funny compositions. My favorite tracks are his duets, including Ray Benson from Asleep At The Wheel. Pull on your boots, polish your buckle and give it a listen!”

Genre: Folk/Americana
For fans of: The Avett Bros., Trampled By Turtles

The Hazy Souls are an alt-folk band from New Brunswick, NJ consisting of Nick Geremia, Kyle Pucciarello, and Brett Praskach. Their songs perfectly showcase their diverse musical influences, as well as their varying personal experiences, and create a sonically unique, original sound. Kyle and Nick's musical relationship was born out of a chance encounter at a local bar, where they both performed as solo artists. After this, it was natural that Brett, a veteran of the New Brunswick Punk-Pop scene, be brought on to continue to add diversity to the sound. The Hazy Souls’ songs are written with a passion and honesty that resonate with their audience, tackling issues of work, life, love, and dreams.

 iTunes Editorial review (excerpt), May 2013: "...Thomas Pynchon-esque in its storytelling sleight of hand... Between the singer's penthouse-elevator vocal range (with plush, cloud-hopping melodies to match), Joe McGinty's vintage-keyboard coloring, and White's own eloquent lead guitar lines, Bob should lighten the heart of anyone who feared that classic art-pop a la David Bowie, Scott Walker, Sparks, et al., was an endangered species."

His midnight gifts evoke Hank Williams and Skip James as much as Tom Waits and Dylan.

10pm- Mark from 3A
Genre:  Acoustic Rock
For fans of:  Collective Soul, Foo Fighters, David Bowie, City and Colour

Mark from 3A formed when drummer, Jason Lang of Apt. 3D, knocked on his neighbor's door and asked if the guys playing guitar, Mark Ayesh of Apt. 3A and James L'Esperance, needed a drummer.  The rest is video games, whiskey, neighborly love and history.  Songwriters Mark Ayesh and Bayard Russell each bring their own unique style to the table.

MF3A's sound lives somewhere between Russell's space-folk rock (Collective Soul with a slap of Bowie) and Ayesh's alternative rock (if City and Colour and Foo Fighters had a baby.)  The rest of MF3A's sound comes from the band with L'Esperance playing lead guitar, Lang on Drums and Clark Baxtresser on keys and backup vocals.  Mark from 3A is currently in the process of recording a demo and plays gigs all around New York City, including Bowery Electric, Arlene's Grocery, Underground Lounge, Spike Hill, and The Way Station.

“Russell delivers simple, catchy songs with honest lyrics straight from his broken heart. He effortlessly takes what most of us would consider as bad situations and makes light of them, and in doing so he creates a responsive bond of some sort with his listeners.” -HotIndieNews.com

9pm- Sara Nelms 
Genre: singer songwriter/ folk
For fans of:  Dixie chicks, Alanis Morrissett, Civil Wars

Originally from Florida, Sara’s sound combines the control and melodic power of her classical training, melancholy of lost loves, the southern stylings from a lifetime love affair with country music, and the grit and truth found in her current home in New York City. All of this, still leaving you with the hope of a positive outcome in things to come. Her new album, Lover, No Longer captures this spirit completely, through woven tales of love, loss, heartache, and hope. “With her individual vocal delivery and strong songwriting, Nelms isn’t trying to be anyone else, and why should she be? Lover, No Longer is an extremely consistent effort and if this is anything to judge by, then it certainly looks like a long career is ahead of Sara Nelms," says Ross Barber.

Critic Justin Kreitzer says, “classically trained, her versatile acoustic-based sound is fluid enough to slide between intimate coffee shops and club stages with full band arrangements without losing any of the passion in translation.” Also, “she possesses one heck of a beautiful voice. And with the understated yet infectious country-leaning folk-pop melodies and captivating songwriting on her exceptional new album, Lover, No Longer; singer-songwriter Sara Nelms should attract the type of national attention that she deserves”.

9pm- Sister Lip
Genre: jazzy blues

The ladies of Sister Lip are not ladies that can be easily described. The band’s music is hardly better: if Sister Lip were packaged, it would have a long, long list of ingredients and no preparation instructions. It’s a little bit of jazz; it’s a little bit of blues. It’s one part funk and one part rock with a healthy measure of attitude. It’s a teaspoon of this emotion and a tablespoon of that. Above all else, it’s got a whoooole lotta soul dolloped right on the top, and the package is sealed with a big red kiss.

FRIDAY 8/8
8pm- Quinn Deveaux 
Genre: Blue Beat Soul
For fans of: Ray Charles, John Hurt, Bill Withers

The modern soul songs of Quinn Deveaux, sung in his sweet tenor over a spare guitar or carried by his band’s bright tones, evoke old images aplenty: dusty roads shaded by live oaks and sounds; gutbucket barrooms where rock-n-roll was born; pine-walled shacks and four-square churches, down in the Delta, where its bluesmen and gospel-forebears rent their souls.

Blue Delight By Ian S. Port
He calls his music "blue beat." But what comes out when Quinn DeVeaux hits the mic might as well just be called joy. The Indiana native distills decades of American blues, country, soul, and gospel into a funky sound that feels as authentic as it does refreshing. With a voice smoother than a top-shelf single malt, he lends a convincing swagger to classic songs about love and loss — his latest album, Under Covers, consists solely of other people's songs. But backed by his trio of backup singers, called the Blue Beat Review, and the warm grit of his guitar work, DeVeaux has a joyous sound all his own.

9pm- Professor
Genre: Alternative
For fans of:  Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, 90’s music, music in general

At the dawn of 2009, the people of Toronto were shaken by the sounds of what some thought was the mating ritual of two ancient dragons.  But they were wrong.  What they were hearing was the primordial sounds of the 4 piece rock band known as Professor.  These 4 derelict musicians would join forces to combine their deep love of 90's music with brain-rippling guitar solos, face-shattering effects pedals and groin-tickling vocal melodies.

10pm- Les Bicyclettes Blanche
The band Les Bicyclettes Blanches formed in the summer of 2005, in Woodstock NY, in a barn of an old mill turned into a Native American ceremonial center, blessed by Tibetan monks. The core of the band is Magnolia Santibanez (vocals/guitar/bass/keys), from Paris France and Mackenzie Miller Parker (drums/guitar/bass) from the Catskills. Soon they started to collaborate with other musicians for their live shows and recording sessions they were encountering on their tours and travels of the USA and Europe. Stanton Warren, Ash Humhey, Sean Finnigan have been their main lead guitar players. They have so far recorded 15 albums and can be heard on some radios stations as well as a few compilations from LA Records, Manimal Vinyl Records, and Winter Records.

The Raven Cafe, AZ, by Newt Lynn:
Les Bicyclettes Blanches from Woodstock, NY and Paris France, sound something like a lo-fi French version of the Velvet Underground if the Velvets were french, Nico was the sole vocalist, and they were playing a Jefferson Airplane meets Air sort of dream rock

 “Tim has all the qualities one looks for in a live performance: He is in tune with the elasticity of the crowd.  I could feel myself being drawn closer and closer to the music as the song went on.”
