jaggeryami saraiya
Sun, July 27th – Jaggery with Ami Saraiya $5 Cover. Doors @ 7pm, Music @ 8pm.
Jaggery audiences go silent and still like people appreciating raw, scary, beautiful wildlife.” That observation was made by web magazine, Cambridge Day, in reaction to the Boston-based five-piece, who work the dark edge of a genre-defying musical style (darkwave jazz? ethereal avant-rock? chamber art-pop?) Moving from haunting lullabies to intricately-woven mixed-meter rants to catharsis-inducing mini-epics, the band borrows pages out of the books of both Kate Bush and Alice Coltrane, suggesting a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins or a “white witch” counter to the haunting Diamanda Galas.

Ami Saraiya conjures up the kind of Old World Europhilia that any cabaret-pop songwriter worth her kazoo solo should. But the Chicago-based artist also differentiates herself with elements of fragmented indie rock and some truly wild vocal contortionism. She knows when to straighten her delivery for fuller emotional impact, too, pulling her Left Bank torch songs and Balkan accordion hop back to the here and now. Saraiya celebrates the release of her latest winning full-length,Soundproof Box, produced and arranged by fellow traveler Mark Messing (Mucca Pazza)” Stephen Gosset, Flavorpill

Belleisle pic
Thurs, July 31st – Belleisle
Belleisle plays a particularly ponderous pop repertoire the readily relies on catchily-crafted chord changes, mind-meltingly meticulous melodies and a handful of happy, haunting harmonies.

“Fans of laid back and uber-melodic indie rock should check out locals Belleisle. Their ever-changing and evolving lineup is at least a sextet, but can, at time, reach ten members as they use a variety of instruments to deliver sweet and soft tunage that aims to sweep the listener off into somewhere dreamy.”
-Loud Loop Press, Weekly Diversions, 8/5/13

Johnny Azari
Mon, Aug 25th – Johnny Azari with Prichard Harter

Johnny Azari was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, opium, and revolution. At only a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York; noted for grit, madness, money, and proliferation. These things had no influence on him whatsoever.
Azari has scored, Illusions & Mirrors, starring Natalie Portman; shared the stage with, The New York Dolls, Kiss, Nouvelle Vague, Sussan Deyhim; collaborated with Shirin Neshat, Mohsen Namjoo, and David Kahn. A decade of work has seen him release 3 LPS and 6 EP’s, score a feature film, co-write a play for Performa, tour EU and USA, and create a handful of videos for youtube, two of which (occupation blues | freedom glory) enjoyed viral success, all of which has earned him attention from The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, The New York Observer, and more.
In 2011 he quit his band, citing differences of integrity, and left 10 years of work and his home town, New York City, behind. He moved to the Adirondack mountains where he built Accelerated Entropy Studios. There, he spent a year in solitude and reflection, recording his first solo LP, The Tropic of Entropy. Now, two LP’s and three years later, he lives on the road touring the United States relentlessly.
